Spoiled by their upbringing with no idea what wild life is really like, four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs
A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.

On a special trip outside the hive, Barry's life is saved by Vanessa, a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue them.

In Jasper National Park, the wolves, Kate and Humphrey, have known each other since puppyhood, but they are on the oppose ends of the Western Pack's social structure with Kate as the energetic Alpha daughter of the pack leader and Humphrey being the good humoured Omega. That social structure forces Kate to accept an arranged marriage with Garth of the Eastern Pack to unite the packs for peace, regardless of Humphrey's hopeless attraction for her. Before that union can occur, Kate and Humphrey are captured by the park's rangers and sent to an Idaho park as part of a wolf repopulation project. Mindful of her duties, Kate is determined to return to Jasper and Humphrey offers to help with the assistance of two odd geese. However, as this disparate pair struggle through the dangers to get home, a growing mutual appreciation of their talents and then a deeper love threatens to disastrously complicate everything if they make it back.

When Kate and Humphrey land in the boxcar, both doors are open, but when the train is nearing Jasper Park, only one door is open; the one facing the park. See more »

It's Garth, and we're just taking a little break.
What, is that so strange?
No, no, no no no, are you kidding? I always like to take a break, ten minutes into a howl.
Well I do!

There are good animations. There are bad animations. There are schmaltz-y animations. And there are cheesy animations. Between these categories, Alpha and Omega falls into 'bad' and 'cheesy' categories. Since the animal-movie genre hit Hollywood, the same plot lines have been used over and over again, but seldom do you see all of the clichés consolidated into one movie. Kate's mother was on the verge of psycho. Kate was the very embodiment of the ideal mate, while Humphrey (REALLY? HUMPHREY?) is the exact opposite. From the first twenty minutes of the movie, you can tell exactly what is going to happen and what order it's going to happen in. One of the redeeming qualities might have been the animation, except that everything behaves as if it's made of foam rubber. As said previously, the colors are nice, but in no way make up for the train wreck that was this movie. If Lionsgate managed to screw what could (should!) have been a good movie up this badly, I shudder to think about what The Hunger Games will be like.
