Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted—PG
Alex (Ben Stiller), Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith), Marty (Chris Rock) and Melman (David Schwimmer) are back and are still trying to get back to New York! This time they’re in Europe with Animal Control after them. To escape they join a travelling circus and try to continue their journey without being discovered. Both critics and audiences (young and old) seem to love it, with the New York Times saying “Where “Madagascar 3” soars is in its visuals: A Monte Carlo chase is vertiginously madcap; a Cirque du Soleil-style spectacle dazzles with rich pastels; the 3-D effects have wit and invention. Kids will be stimulated. And, parents, you’ll enjoy the sights.” 
So is it worth the money? Yes!
