Voice overs are okay to good. There are lots of good jokes, most of them musical or visual in nature. You can spend a lot of time trying to find all the spoofs of other movies. My favorite was Alex on his knees, on the beach with the giant smoldering burnt-to-a-crisp statue, exclaiming, Darn it all to Heck! I sure hope someone does a "Cliff Notes" for this movie before the DVD comes out so I can find all the others.
The penguins made it perfect for me. There is one scene where they arrive in Antartica and are standing by the ship with the snow storm howling away. After about fifteen seconds of this, one penguin says "Well this sucks!" and they turn the ship around and head back to Madagascar. It's going to be one of those classic movie sequences that's going to be remembered for a long time.
I'll stop there before I give it all away. Suffice to say, that we all highly recommend this film. The "Move it, move it" song will get your kids dancing and prancing about all summer too.
There was a trailer for the Wallace and Gromit movie (coming to theatres in October this year) which was hilarious. That's going to be another "must see" visit to the big screen later this year.
