I just finished watching the cartoon-movie Madagascar. I have three grandchildren and I like to preview what they will see. I don't always succeed, but I do try. I was entertained by this movie overall, and there were many exceptionally funny moments. For the parents and grandparents, particularly those who were exposed to much of the entertainment of the past, there were quick reminiscences that would bring a smile to their face.
Animation was nice, characterizations were great, and the story itself was fun.
Yet, I deleted the movie from my computer and will not share it with my grandkids. Why not?
Because of all the toilet humor, a truly excessive amount that went just a little too far for me. And why was there a scene where the Lion gets kicked in the private parts and his voice goes up? For the parents and grandparents?
So I'd say Madagascar is too childish for an average adult and too crude for an average child. I certainly have places I'd like to see my kids' minds go, and none of them is spelled T-O-I-L-E-T.
