So much to the displeasure of Barneys Girl and I, we got stuck watching a stupid zebra wishing to live in the oh-so-lovely wilderness *sarcastic*, and decides to actually run away. Then the zebra's three best friends decide to try to save him, but they all end up on an island that is very in the middle of no where. Of course, the story proceeds that the animals freak out, have fun, get over any evil and problems, and live happily ever after. Don't I just sound so excited?
If you're wondering what we were like during the movie, here it is:
- After getting over the zebra's idiocy of running away from the lovely New York Central Park Zoo, where he gets fed for free everyday, I slowly drifted into a state of half asleep halfway through the movie.
- When the animals start starving, Barneys Girl whispers to me "That lion is so right; what was the zebra thinking?" I agree with the most enthusiasm I have shown throughout the movie.
- Barneys Girl and I very much sympathise the poor, traumatised lion in such a lost situation.
- Two of our friends enjoyed and laughed through the movie, (they even sort of danced with the overly joyful music,) while our other friend kind of nodded numbly through it. Talk about different reactions.
And yes, the penguins are my favourite character. They were most definately the smartest. Not to mention that black and white is going to be so popular this coming season!
So the conclusion is, don't watch Madagascar unless you're under the age of 5. (What were they thinking? There wasn't even any romance throughout the whole cartoon!)
