For the past few months, most of the available movie choices in the theaters have been too angsty, or romantic, or horror-laden, to suit both [livejournal.com profile] esrblog and myself. However, Madagascar 2--Return 2 Africa is finally out, and [livejournal.com profile] esrblog and I went to see it, see it with our friends [livejournal.com profile] pmat and [livejournal.com profile] shakati.

[livejournal.com profile] esrblog loved it. He raved afterward about the wittiness of the script and the (to him blessed) absence of music-and-dance numbers. He noted that it had avoided the curse of sequelitis by being at least as good as the original. He also remarked, "It was a shrewd idea on the part of the moviemakers to give the penguins more screen time."

What do I think? It was pleasant enough. Unfortunately, I can't explain my opinions about the movie without spoilers, so I shall have to put the rest of this review under an lj-cut.

Hurry up, before we come to our senses! )
