Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

They may be Europe’s most wanted, but I have to tell you those animals were madagascar ticket stubnot in such high demand in my home town.  Don’t call me a curmudgeon, but even the dopey Afro-Circus song wasn’t enough to save this from being a disappointment to both a little girl and her grumpy old dad.

We weren’t half way through the film when my girl says, and this is pretty much a quote “No wonder the penguins and monkeys left them in Africa – sheeesh!”

Sheesh? I don’t know if that’s a word, but then again I’d bet neither is Afro-Circus. The good news? Movies are dark and naps are easy, AND Brave was playing in the same theater so we went ahead made a double-feature out afro circusof it.

I know animals are cute and have personalities, backstories and famous voices, but really, can someone tell me why, oh why we need 3 Madcascar’s. With all due respect to Hollywood, or wherever these animals live in their mansions, with their fancy cars, personal trainers and assistants – can we let nature be?

Leave the lion, giraffe, hippo and zebra in Africa and let’s see how they get along. The monkeys should have stayed in the trees – cause if they’d seen this movie I dread to think what they would have been throwing at the screen, and as far as I can recall, the penguins are all in Antarctica slowly being ravaged by global warming while Robin Williams is singing to them in that OTHER avian masterpiece.
