If you're looking for a good family movie to see this weekend, look no further. Madagascar 3 is a kids movie, made with parents in mind. Although it has plenty to keep the adults entertained, it doesn't stoop to clandestine raunchiness just to get a laugh from mom and dad. As all parents know, finding a movie that is enjoyable for the whole family, yet also appropriate for everyone, can sometimes prove to be a real challenge. This one fits the bill.
Laughter was the order of the day when I saw Madagascar 3 in the theater last weekend. The movie is funny, entertaining, and has a heartwarming story. As an added bonus, the fabulous Frances McDormand joins the returning Madagascar cast, bringing the star quality up a notch. The 3D effects enhanced the viewing experience and clearly delighted the children in the audience. I recommend Madagascar 3 as a fun family movie to kick off the summer season.
