Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
When I started as a film critic, it was never my intention to regularly trash films. That's just not something I particularly enjoy. I understand that studios invest a lot of money on them, and lots of people put a lot of time into them, and that I'm lucky to have the opportunity to see them for free in advance to review them. But I just don't get animated comedies like this one. Of course I'm significantly older than the target demographic, but I didn't find it remotely entertaining. So is it me or is it the movie? I still love the Disney classics I grew up with like 'The Jungle Book'. I also like most of the Pixar films, and even a bad Pixar like 'Cars 2' is still better than this. I actually walked out halfway through and I almost never do that. Now, this isn't to say that your child won't like it. They probably will. But I didn't. And I can't understand why any adult would.
