WHO WILL DIG IT?

Kids under 13, kids over 13 who grew up with the "Madagascar" franchise, and frazzled parents who can drop off the kids at the theater on a hot summer afternoon.

THREE GOOD REASONS

  • 1The already A-list vocal talent (Ben Stiller, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jada Pinkett Smith, et al) gets more golden with the addition of Frances McNormand, Jessica Chastain, Bryan Cranston and Martin Short.
  • 2Both of "Mad 3's" predecessors, "Madagascar" and "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" copped Favorite Animated Movie Honors at the Kids Choice Awards, making this a strong candidate for a three-peat.
  • 3This is the first 3D film in the series, so plan to don those glasses when taking the kids.
