It’s the movie “Penguins” fans have all been waiting for. The beloved quartet from Madagascar have their own cartoon and now their own film. POM took a page out of the Shrek handbook and provided tons of comedy for adults in this movie. There’s enough silliness to keep the kids happy and copious amounts of dry comedy to please any adult in attendance.
Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private embark on an epic adventure after leaving the usual drab daily life of a penguin in the South Pole. Penguins of Madagascar take you to the very beginning of their existence in Antarctica. There’s no need to “learn” to love them, because you’ll love everything about them from the start, including how Private was the last addition to their family. Everywhere they go, they go on a mission, they make you laugh, and you feel good that you brought your kids and are getting your money’s worth.
Aside from the nonstop comedy you’ll experience, there’s also a few voices you’ll recognize, including: John Malkovich, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ken Jeong, and more.
Everything about this movie is great. It’s a great family film and if you’re older you can enjoy it too. POM gets a 9 out of 10 from me. Whether you have kids or not, take the time to see this movie as soon as you need comic relief from reality.
