Well that escalated quickly! "Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted" comes out of nowhere and surpasses the first two films by a mile. This time, picking… More

Wonderful, adventure and lots of laugh in this third animation film of four animals. It starts as it means to go on: with scant regard for anything approaching… More
