    I was reading a description for the upcoming movie "The Wild" when my daughter sees it too and I agreed when she said..."Isn't that Madagascar?".

    Here is the description of the movie from www.comingsoon.net

    Funny Hippo? Well we get a funny Koala Bear.

    Funny Penguins? Well we get funny Chameleons.

    I have not seen it yet, is Madagascar a good movie?

    If so then I can't complain about another one that is similar. My kids are too young, or is that too wild, to take to the movies( 3.5 and 1.5 years) right now. If/when they are older I won't complain about being ablt to take them to a saturday matinee for a movie that is similar to another one that came out recently.

    With all the not-necessarily-good remakes of tv series and older movies coming out this may be a moot point.

    Not really. The penguins are the only genuinely funny part of the movie and they don't have a lot of screen time.

    Yeah, Madagascar was a disappointment after the funny trailers and a few rave reviews I read. There are many funny elements but the story drags. I also hated Chris Rock's grating vocal performance.
