More Info:
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    It's a kid's Cirque de Soleil, for a lot less money.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The story in Madagascar 3 is functional, but the antically civilized spirit is infectious.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    While the result isn't the greatest show on Earth, it certainly is a lot of fun.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    While it may blunder down the odd comedy cul-de-sac, Madagascar 3 is often inspired and very, very funny.

    Empire Full Review
  • Andy Webster

    Where Madagascar 3 soars is in its visuals: A Monte Carlo chase is vertiginously madcap; a Cirque du Soleil-style spectacle dazzles with rich pastels; the 3-D effects have wit and invention. Kids will be stimulated. And, parents, you'll enjoy the sights.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Boldly and gaily sustained the madcap momentum for the whole of its eighty-few minutes.

    Time Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    Europe's Most Wanted is so full of laughs and great characters, it's easily the best in the series. Like "Toy Story 3," the Madagascar gang just gets better with time, and this new adventure is funny, exciting and heartwarming.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Michelle Orange

    Manages to surprise with a charm and wit all its own.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Alison Willmore

    Credit Baumbach, credit the filmmakers, credit no one giving a damn anymore - for what's yet another hyperactive talking-animal children's movie, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is uncommonly rewarding, and a potential future stoner's delight.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Jaime N. Christley

    In spite of its lazy, cookie-cutter screenplay, simple narrative mechanics are only dutifully observed to the extent that they step aside to make way for numerous flights of madness.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The animation artistry of Madagascar 3 is at its best under the big top, all cotton candy fluff and razzle dazzle. The character development of this edition is the best of the rest as well.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Good-humored and endearing, full of energy and color (sometimes neon) if not quite Pixar-level invention.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The circus acts and the rehearsals, which are set to Katy Perry's "Fireworks," make the greatest use of the movie's 3-D capacities. Madagascar 3 may not rival the "greatest show on earth" but it's good enough to pack 'em in anyway.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Hardly fresh, but it never stints on energy or vivid colors.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    You can picture the DreamWorks corporate confab: "OK, the kids respond to move-it, move-it repetition - give us something else repetitive, and let's get herding." It wasn't just desperate, it was insulting.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Staff (Not Credited)

    The ghost of Tex Avery is alive and well in a frenetic sequel that does more than reheat and serve. Madagascar 4? Don't bet against it.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Madagascar 3 has a problem: It rarely slows down enough to let us really enjoy it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Jennie Punter

    The clever lines and themes of friendship and finding home are almost completely overwhelmed here by the breathless pace and sensory overload.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    Even within the rules of its own peculiar world - a world well stocked with talking savanna denizens and monkey-powered superplanes - the film is completely irrational.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Madagascar 3 is all about exuberant motion, cute characters and gorgeous colors. It aims for the eyes, not the heart.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    For many adults, sitting through this will be an exercise in tedium. It offers about as much as an oversized, overlong Saturday morning cartoon and if that's where expectations are set, it probably won't disappoint. Talk about setting the bar low, though.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Eric Hynes

    Like a big-screen Big Gulp, this third installment of the billion-dollar animated franchise contains as much cinematic confection as an 85-minute movie can bear.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Yes, it's a cartoon, but it's conspicuously unmodulated, with the volume set on high and the pacing all but pushed to fast-forward.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Sam Adams

    Madagscar 3 is less interested in plucking the last bit of meat off the series's bones than with simply picking the lowest-hanging fruit.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    This is an exhausting, eyeball-gougingly ugly 90-minute assault of non-stop action, with an all-star voice cast shouting witless lines and a wide variety of objects lobbed at the audience in the crudest 3-D fashion.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Madagascar 3 can't upgrade its own shtick, becoming a craven example of a fast-buck, no-fun family film.
