Now who'd like a cookie ?By JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 19 Aug 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]When Marty escapes from Central Park Zoo, Alex, Melman and Gloria begin a rescue mission to find and return their friend. However, they soon find themselves reunited, but.......on a ship bound for Africa. The ship is hijacked and they inadvertantly get stranded on a strange island. Here they learn what life in the wild is actually like.
A very clever and colourful animation that really is a beautiful piece of work. Lovable characters, great voiceovers and a superb plot means top entertainment for kids with a little for adults mixed in.

Great classic movie that will be loved for years to comeBy Alexander-UK (128 reviews) , 28 Aug 2013I really enjoyed this movie and did my neice and she loves the animation movies of all kinds. I thought the plot was funny and cute but my only pulling point is the movie was very American feeling, it almost had a feel of this is for New Yorkers only about it. Great animation, good acting voices and a feel good movie.

Not the best.By lord_flashart (4 reviews) from Weymouth, Dorset , 20 Jun 2011With the cast including such big stars it failed to deliver in my opinion. It also failed to entertain my 2½ year old daughter and fell far short of the high energy animated films 'Cars' and 'Ratatouille' which she can't get enough of.
The motion is slow and the plot is fairly thin so overall 2 stars which are only awarded as the animation is good and the voice actors are obviously trying to make the best of a dull storyline.
