Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (2012)

They might be Europe’s Most Wanted but they’re not on my Must See Movie list. You can only exploit a series so much and it’s not like Madagascar two was a huge success, didn’t really give much expectations for a second sequel. The story starts out with Alex (Ben Stiller), Marty (Chris Rock), Melman (David Schwommer) and Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith) decide to go back to New York.
Are you kidding me! Anyways, on their way they get stranded in Europe and get chased by Animal Control Captain Chantel DuBois (Frances McDormand), hence the name “Europe’s Most Wanted”. Finally they meet a group of circus animals who also want to go to NYC and then, well, you have to see the movie for that. The only good thing about the movie is the penguins, who are actually funny to watch. Even so, the funny scenes were so few and far between, that it wasn’t enough to save the movie. The movie has little else to offer. Sometimes less is more and two sequels for Madagascar are more than enough. Actually, one sequel was more than enough and this one is just overkill.

Something to watch with your kids.
