Goofs

Classified uses the plural 'octupi' which is incorrect, since 'octopus' has Greek origins. It should be 'octopuses', or if you insist on using its Greek plural 'octopodi'. See more »

i enjoy them all
8 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

The movie was cute because it is the penguins. I saw the Madagascar movies and watch the penguins TV series. I liked it except for different voices for the movies and the TV series.The only constant voice and same character was skipper. The others looked different from the show. Another thing I do not like are the name innuendos. What point does it have? Just for laughs? I think they could have done with out that. It would have been nice if they would have tied it in with the TV series as they did a tie in for the Madagascar movies. How did they get all the gadgets for the TV series? They are supposed to be an elite squad, where are the gadgets?
