This was it, the weekend for Madagascar 2. The Old Salt and Blushing Bride took three grandchildren and one daughter to the Regal Theater on Saturday to see Madagascar 2.
The grand boys are 5, 3 and 3/4 years (9 months) of age and each one's behavior was exemplary (an old naval term). Much soda and popcorn was consumed and all had a great time.
The real stars of the show were the Penguins. They took over every segment of the movie they were in. In addition to them, the Nana from Yonkers was also a scream.
The supporting staff for the Penguins and the Nana included:
Ben Stiller as Alex the lion,
Chris Rock as Marty the zebra,
David Schwimmer as Melman the giraffe,
Jada Pinkett Smith as Gloria the hippo,
Sacha Baron Cohen as King Julien the lemur king,
Cedric The Entertainer as Maurice, Julien’s advisor,
Andy Richter as Mort the chimp
Bernie Mac as Zuba, Alex’s dad the head of the pride,
Sherri Shepherd as Alex’s Mom,
Alec Baldwin as Makunga, the bad guy, a challenger to Zuba and
Will.I.Am as Moto Moto, a watering hole lothario.
