Madagascar 2..

Today was the big movie day! We had planned to take the kids to see a film during the Christmas month countdown. We had hoped we could go see Despereaux, as we all loved the book. However, the film will not be released in Australia until after the 1st of the year. However, we weren't totally let down because they opted to release Madagascar this month. We were able to sneak in for the previewing that started today (runs through Sunday for those of you in Tassie..). We were joined by two other families (no we didn't know them) but that's all that occupied the theater. The boys truly enjoyed the film and were found roaring with laughter. Lawrence and I were not above a few roars ourselves. Morgan has been chatting about it pretty much non-stop since seeing it. He dubbed it better then the first, all though this may have something to do with the uncountable herd of zebra that Marty befriends. Lawrence, on the other hand, said, that while it was funny, it wasn't nearly as good as the first one. Jayden said the move was funny, crazy, and pathetic. Take no notice of his final comment, it's his new word of the week.. As for myself, I found it entertaining, and slightly predictable. The penguins, as normal, were a total hoot. The monkeys may need to learn some new signs, the Granny was back and Jayden found her highly entertaining, the variety of lemurs were back and as typically crazy as ever. All in all, this wasn't a bad movie. It had some "questionable" humor in it, that gratefully the boys were well below and didn't get. They also oogled over a few upcoming films that were deemed "cool", "awesome", and "I hope we get to see that one!" What else could top their day? Getting to eat McDonald's Happy Meals while watching the film. Oh yeah, they so did. No, rules about not taking your own food in the theater here.
