Day 14 - 1/14/09 - Movie #14

BEFORE: I'm a little short on time again, since tonight was the 2-hour premiere of "American Idol", which I just HAD to watch. (love those trainwreck auditions...) I've got a bunch of these (relatively) short animated features to watch, so let's start with this one.

THE PLOT: Four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs.

AFTER: Well, it was a little simplistic, and had a few too many of those watch "animal falls down" slapsticky moments, but it was still entertaining. Good voices and a good initial story idea, but the plot seemed unresolved, like half of a complete story. Guess that's what sequels are for...

RATING: 7 out of 10 merry lemurs.
