Storyline Heading
Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course, King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Adventure Comedy - Like the first two films, this is an animated comedy aimed at the whole family. The main cast of lion, zebra, giraffe, and hippo are back, again voiced by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, and Jada Pinkett Smith. The target audience are kids and families though there is some adult appeal. Some mildly crude humor gives the film its PG rating; it's safe viewing for children on the whole.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It's sad to see all the technical expertise evident in the visual aspects of this movie wasted in service of such a derivative and fundamentally unsatisfying experience.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Madagascar's third go-round is hardly fresh, but it never stints on energy or vivid colors.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Very Good What's really surprising about 'Madagascar 3' is just how moving it ultimately is, largely because of the emotionally engaging character animation.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 115 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:As expected, the "KIDS LOVED MADAGASCAR 3."
TEENS:Nearly all the females loved "Europe's Most Wanted." Half the males loved it and the rest rated it average, which isn't bad for a kids movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from both the males and females. This is obviously much more than a kids movie.
ADULTS:These are also GREAT REVIEWS from the adults for this kids movie. Both the males and females rated it very high. This is A GREAT FAMILY MOVIE! Take the whole family to see "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Talk about taking the long way home…

Alex (Ben Stiller), Marty (Chris Rock), Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Melman (David Schwimmer) are determined to make their way back to The Central Park Zoo in New York City. Leaving Africa behind, they've taken a detour and surfaced, quite literally, in Europe — on a hunt for the penguins and chimps who have managed to break the bank of a Monte Carlo casino. Soon the animals are discovered by dogged French animal control officer Capitaine Chantel DuBois (Frances McDormand) who does not appreciate zoo animals running wild in her city and is thrilled by the idea of hunting her first lion! The Zoosters find the perfect cover in a down-and-out traveling circus where they hatch a plan to reinvent the circus, discover a few new talents and make it home to New York alive.
