More Info:
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The screenplay by John Aboud, Michael Colton and Brandon Sawyer has a fizzy, pop-culture pizazz, tempered by a distinctly vaudeville sensibility. It’s smart, but not brainy; dumb, but never inane.

  • Walter Addiego

    There’s plenty here to tickle the kids, and that’s what counts.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    Any kids’ cartoon that opens with narration by the mondo eccentric German filmmaker Werner Herzog is bound to bring comfort to hearts of certain parents in the house.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    The pacing is so zany, the jokes are so rapid-fire and the sight gags are so inspired that it’s impossible not to get caught up in the infectious energy of it all. Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Frenetic and frequently funny, Penguins Of Madagascar represents the DreamWorks Animation franchise style — which boils down to self-aware, but naïve, talking animals who learn kid-friendly life lessons — at its most palatable.

  • Steve Persall

    Penguins of Madagascar is fun while it lasts, and then mostly forgettable except for whatever shake-your-head lunacy sticks.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    In zany set piece after zany set piece, the movie sets itself apart as willing to try anything, do anything for laugh, and it succeeds more often than it fails, even when falling back on some creaky wordplay and the occasional over-emphasis on both fart gags and pop culture references.

  • Roger Moore

    As “cute and cuddly” as ever, and often downright hilarious.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Bill Zwecker

    From the opening frame right up to the whirlwind finale, you will be treated to non-stop action, clever dialogue and quite a bit of zany energy. If I’d fault anything about this fun romp, it’s that the filmmakers tried to jam-pack too much into one movie.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    All Penguins of Madagascar wants to do is make you laugh at its silliness. It succeeds.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    The decision to focus on the series’s comic relief has resulted in the loosest and perhaps funniest film of the brand.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    A merry entertainment that never pretends to greatness, Penguins of Madagascar is all about antics, verbal and visual.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Parental units who manage to remain conscious through the kiddie-centric proceedings can either savor, or groan at, Malkovich's bespectacled Octavius barking punny, celebrity name-dropping orders to his minions.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    It does well to put more focus on delivering a plethora of jokes, imitations, zippy repartee, and sight gags than its plot's familiar machinations.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    The film is frantic and silly and our biggest gripe is that all the penguins look the same.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Penguins of Madagascar is an injection of sugar direct to the pineal gland and woe betide any parent who tries to get their children to take a nap after seeing it.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    All the glossy, kinetic animation and inventive action sequences get lost in the gag machine. The film throws jokes out like a tennis-ball machine on the fritz: gross humor, slapstick pratfalls, bizarre non sequiturs. The randomness does land a few laughs, but it's also exhausting.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    A sassy script and good-natured voice work from Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich should keep kids and grownups entertained over the holidays.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    This is a joyless, frenetic film that is very rarely funny.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    It is a perfect example of marketing driving the machine. It's also a profoundly silly movie that really isn't even trying to play by the conventional rules of family animation.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The pun is a gun for Penguins' writers. Not a sharpshooter rifle, but a machine gun that unloads a nonstop quip barrage, mowing down the real promise of this 3-D animation action comedy.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    It’s a movie content to stay within the show’s comfort zone, changing things up mainly with flashier, 3-D visuals, a couple of which are dazzlers, and a theme that doesn’t connect in any notable way.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Strives to be entertaining, but for much of its run time it is so emotionally uninvolving that even the smallest children might find themselves bored.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    While there are plenty of madcap antics to fill a feature, all that manic energy ultimately proves to be more exhausting than exhilarating.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jeff Labrecque

    Aims primarily for the kiddies, racing from one frenetic action sequence to another like some haywire Walter Lantz cartoon.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    What Penguins Of Madagascar needs is a roomful of ruthless editors to take jokes out of the script, particularly the ones aimed at pleasing the grown-ups in the audience.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Geoff Berkshire

    The graceful camerawork, precise editing and high-quality animation still can’t disguise the lack of imagination that went into the overall conception and the repetitive sameness that creeps into every bind the penguins find themselves in.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The story line, a sequence of very loosely connected events, sustains a state of almost pure brainlessness with its indifference to dramatic development and the dictates of logic, even the fantasy logic of cartoons. It’s as if most of the script had been generated by algorithms.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Simon Abrams

    Plays like a sampler of Dreamworks Animation's worst creative impulses: sugar-rush pacing, pandering meta-gags, and a slick, flavorless animation style.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    The unfunny, unmoving, and uninspired Penguins never persuades us of its need to exist. Sure, there's a muddled lesson at the end, as tacked on as a Post-It on a piece of week-old cake.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A lazy, noisy ADHD-addled collection of animated clichés guaranteed to give anyone older than 5 a headache, even if you don’t see it in optional 3-D.
