Saw the Penguins of Madagascar movie over the holiday weekend. While no Oscar contender, this fun and charming film is enjoyable for kids and adults alike.
As usual, the spy-based humor, visual gags, and word play are a delight, just as they are in the animated television series. A particular favorite of mine was the use of famous celebrity names in commands being given by the villain. For example he shouted an order to one of his octopi minions with the following, “Nicholas… cage them!”
