Madagascar 3

The boys and I went to see “Madagascar 3″ on Friday. I was hoping it wouldn’t be the typical “not good” movie since the first movie is usually the best. We lucked out. It surprisingly was entertaining. It began slow, but picked up in the middle. The movie begins with the main four characters still wanting to return home. Their home originally was a zoo in New York City. On their way of trying to make it to their destination they get paired up with a circus. Alex (the lion), Marty (the zebra), Melman (the giraffe), and Gloria (the hippo) decide to perform with the circus in hopes of making it to New York City. Performing well for a sponsor will lead to New York. It was not only funny, but also inspiring. Alex gives a speech on staying true to who you are and sticking together as a family. They end up in New York, return to the zoo, and find out it truly wasn’t their home anymore. They all realize they have been truly “living” outside the zoo. I think it really touched my heart because it shows us all again that it is about the “quality” of your life. So, the animals stay with the circus and stop pursuing the idea of returning to the zoo. I believe that was a good true ending to the Madagascar trilogy, but with enterainment, you never know what they will come up with next.
