Performers, Cast and Crew:
USA Today - 11/07/2008
"While the cast of characters has grown, the story still focuses on the value of friendship. The plot expands to include familial and romantic love, and to celebrate diversity and uniqueness....MADAGASCAR 2 is amusing animated fare."
New York Times - 11/07/2008
"There's true playfulness here whenever this wacky animal pack takes over....The exaggerated character designs create a nice visual contrast with the photorealistic details and flourishes."
Variety - 11/02/2008
"Spreading the comic wealth around are Cohen, whose lemur monarch is now given sufficient screen time to emerge as memorably nutty....Another enhancement is the film's look....The colors are particularly rich..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/05/2008
"This is a brighter, more engaging film than the original MADAGASCAR....The action is thrilling, and there is a romance between Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/14/2008
"Stiller excels at exploring the sillier aspects of self-involvement, and it's pleasant to see Alex reunited with motormouthed Marty the zebra..."
Total Film - 11/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "DreamWorks' animators up their game with the CG visuals..."
