i enjoy them all
8 April 2015 | by subwmnSee 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?
