I enjoyed the original Madagascar. I tolerated Madagascar 2. I was not looking forward to Madagascar 3. It’s like Shrek, 1 was inspired, 2 was ok, 3 was just bad.
But after seeing this trailer, I might be convinced to see it in theaters. Not in 3D though. That’s enough of that.
The animation also looks better, as it should. The people less cartoony, for lack of a better word and the animals themselves have more definition.
Coming off his shitck at the Oscars, it’s sort of funny to hear Chris Rock as Marty the animated zebra. But damn, that “Afro Circus” bit had me giggling.
I also got a kick out of the line, “only penguins and people can drive!”
As hesitant as I was once LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It” started in the background — it’s a KIDS movie, really? – it came together at the end with Sasha Baron Cohen’s King Julius and his paramour, a bear in a tutu who most likely rides in a little car.
Just like the ballet.
