Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

We watch a lot of childrens movies . . . but I haven't blogged about them for awhile. I've decided I should try to blog about them more to help fellow moms try to pick out movies for their families to watch. Our movie ritual is that once a week, we walk down to the Kewaunee library and Kile gets to look through the kids movies and pick one out. Family friends just gave us an old box of VHS childrens movies so we've been watching them a lot lately instead of going to the library. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa just arrived at the library for us last weekend (we had a hold on it) and Kile was very excited. He really liked Madagascar and both he and Danny loved to dance to "Move It" from the first movie.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa continues the story of Madagascar. Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, and Gloria the Hippo try to take an airplane back to America piloted by the penguins. King Julian joins the crew right before they leave. The plane soon crash lands in Africa on a wildlife preserve when it runs out of fuel. There Alex reunites with his family, Marty discovers that all zebras are just like him, Melman becomes a witch doctor, and Gloria finds love with a fellow hippo. The crew find their share of identity problems and also help the animals on the wildlife perseve get their water back (it had been dammed up offsite).

Kile really enjoyed this movie and especially liked the music. "Move It" was on the movie again and Kile loved it. There were enough jokes in it to keep us parents happy. The movie was rated PG for crude humor, but nothing jumped out at me as being too bad for my three-year old. Note - I was out of the room a couple of times with my 1-year old, but my husband didn't notice anything bad while I was gone. The ending definitely set it up for a third movie - and I'm sure we'll be watching it!
