Tracey Lee Smythe,
The adventurous, young Madeline is very good at getting into trouble, but she's also fantastic in solving problems as well, and her school-mistress Miss Clavel is not too approving of her. ... See full summary »

I watched Madeline: Lost in Paris not too long ago and I didn't like it and wrote a review about it. Then, I had to request the second Madeline movie, My Fair Madeline; and thought it was better than the 1999 movie but there are big problems.
1. The voices have been changed and now, Miss Clavel sounds like a 50-year-old black woman, and Madeline now sounds like a high-pitched version of Amy Rose. She does not sound like the age she's supposed to be, she sounds like a pre-teen.
2. The animation and layouts have been completely changed, but it doesn't matter, it was really good. It reminded me of 2D animation starting back in those days when animation were cooler in the likes of SpongeBob Squarepants.
3. The main characters (which are Clavel, Madeline and the little girls) have become more annoying. Madeline acts like a bratty, smart-mouthed little girl. She says bad words, runs away, and does not want to follow directions. Miss Clavel, I don't know what to say about her, she acts pretty normal, but she and the girls were kinda off for me.
That's all I have to say about the film. The plot was predictable, but the film could've been better. Maybe it's because I always preferred the 1998 Madeline live-action movie over the show. The show was of mediocrity because I never liked musicals except for some of the ones with the songs I liked. And because since I've seen the live action one first, I was always disappointed to see that they sing songs in the animation. Please skip Lost in Paris and watch My Fair Madeline.
