The song from this movie, "Time 2 Move It/I Like To Move It", was used in a 2008 Chrysler car commercial. See more »
When Alex chooses to fight Teetsi the scene changes to Makunga making a comment to the lion on his left. Just as Makunga utters the words, "this ought to be good" the lion several rows in back and to the right of Makunga mouths the same words at the exact moment. This reveals how the animators use computer generated forms, animate them then simply place them in a scene with different skins. See more »
[after Melman has announced he has only 48 hours to live]
If I, King Julien, that's my name, had only two days to live, I would do all the things I always wanted to do.
I'd become a professional whistler. I'm pretty fantastic right now, but I would do it professionally.
[Tries to whistle, but all that comes out is a long raspberry]
Another thing I would do is invade a neighboring country, and force my own ideology on them, even if they didn't want it.

I thought that the first Madagascar had promising characters and a decent premise, but it was very poorly put together. My son, who was 8 or 9 at the time loved the movie, however. We saw the sequel this morning and we both agreed - it was much better than the original. And, since part II begins with a brief summary of part I, there is no need to see the first one to understand what's happening in the new movie. All the main characters are back and there are many new ones as well. Going in, the big question on my mind was "do the penguins play a bigger role in the sequel?"... answer is "Yes, but not much bigger". All in all an enjoyable movie that outshines it's predecessor!
