Premise: Young lion having adolescent issues with his father, accidentally gets trapped in an animal carrier and taken from the Zoo. His father and several friends, break out of the Zoo to go after him and bring him home.
This is a cute little tale with a couple of themes/issues running through it. One from the side of the son, is not being able to live up to his father’s reputation. The other, which springs later, is the father needing to reveal certain truths about himself to his son.
Though not as fun as Madagascar, the film still had many cute moments. The dancing Wildebeest scene was a hoot! Also enjoyed the many of the quirky animals we meet, especially the chameleons. The koala was not very funny, but the thread they do with him about the plushies is. Definitely worth a look, just don’t set expectations too high. 😛 ***
