Trivia

Series trademark: Twilight Zone. Most if not all entries in this series contain an homage to Rod Serling's original The Twilight Zone (1959). In this one, Mort mimics the airplane wing walker from The Twilight Zone: Nightmare at 20,000 Feet (1963). See more »

Goofs

In the very end of the movie, Alex glances at Marty's butt, which has a bite mark supposedly made by Alex in Madagascar. However, the mark cannot be seen in any other scene that shows Marty's butt, such as the very first one when they are all shaking their butts with the music. See more »

Quotes

Skipper: Gently now, you just wanna kiss the ground, just a little peck, a smooch like you're kissing your sister.
[Plane violently lands and the tires break off]
Skipper: I said kiss it!

Another Madagascar Winner
3 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, so far "Madagascar" is two-for-two in the laughs department. This is just as good, if not better, than the first film.

It's another good example of the "new" (last 10 years) kind of animated feature film that adults can enjoy just as much as the kids. In some cases, perhaps like this one, adults would laugh even more because many of the gags might over the kids' heads. I'm not talking sexual innuendos, just references to things older people could recognize.

It isn't just the writing that is excellent; the artwork is spectacular, especially on Blu-Ray. The colors and the detail are just amazing! More than once, my jaw dropped at what I was seeing on the TV screen. Like the first Madagascar, the high-def images are truly spectacular.

The combination of humor, drama, family and friendship ties and romance all make this a wonderful animated movie and the 90 minutes zip by.
