High one! Penguins of Madagascar is so funny, I still can’t stop laughing. Cuteness, humour, action, adventure, drama all jam packed in one. These quadruple wonder are so famous and hilarious that they actually came with their own spin-off. May I say, a thoughtful investment.
The Cuddly Madagascar Team (Spoilers Ahead)
Skipper still calls the shots in his unique classy bossy voice but if it weren’t for Kowalski there is no way he could have ever hit bullseye all the time. We get a better glimpse at Private‘s life in this one and see how underrated he has been in the entire Madagascar franchise. Well, he truly is a gem, besides being cute, cuddly and stupid. Less focus on Rico on this, but yeah team’s incomplete without him.
It is when you see the Penguin origins for the first time that you feel it resonate with reality. They were different right from the beginning, the moment they saw through a line of penguins following one another blindly. In reality, too there are so many characters extant today who don’t know what they are following, or where they are headed. They are too busy filling in footsteps of the one who leads, without questioning anything. It takes courage to think differently and penguins are the paragon of disparate.
He who shall not be named, Classified is actually Benedict Cumberbatch under the dog skin and he reins in competition with a team called The North Wind that comprises of a bear who stress eats, an owl for whom Kowalski has the hots for and a cute demolition expert seal that looks a lot like Mort. But this storyline is just a side story. The actual one runs with the colossal perversion yet stupidity of Dr. Octavius Brine, a.k.a Dave who is bent on ruining everything cute as part of his Octopussy vengeance.
The Final Verdict
Penguins of Madagascar movie is a brilliant comedy. The slapstick, witty and cheesy bits like celeb names mashed up for fun, that cricket chirping, human guitarist, struggling villain, Osteoporosis, all layer up extra bits of laugh. A must watch for everybody. No exceptions!
Oh and don’t miss the post credit scene. Mort and King Julien show up to set things right!
