Mada­gas­car 3 and other school hol­i­day open­ers

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - NEWS -

The voices of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Co­hen re­turn for a third trip to the well for the an­i­mated Mada­gas­car fran­chise, ped­dling the same old story (four nutty an­i­mals on an odyssey home to New York’s Cen­tral Park Zoo) in a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion (a big-top cir­cus trav­el­ling through Europe).

They say: US au­di­ences flocked to cine­mas and re­view­ers grudg­ingly ad­mit­ted this was the strong­est of the tril­ogy, thanks to a re­lent­less pace and ex­u­ber­ant vi­su­als.

We­say: Di­rec­tor Eric Dar­nell’s ( Antz, Mada­gas­car) ef­fort­less kid-pleaser is not quite the slyly adult en­ter­tain­ment many US crit­ics claim. (Re­view, Page 8.) Run­ning time 93 min­utes. Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Robina, Coolan­gatta, Har­bour Town, Yatala Drive-in, Tweed City.
