Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa opens today

DreamWork’s sequel to the hit animated flick Madagascar hits theaters today. Reviews are positive so far for this second installment to the franchise, earning a current rating of 63% on Rotten Tomatoes. “The rare sequel that improves on the original, Madagascar 2 keeps the silliness and steps up the heart,” claims one critic, while another states “This a big screen experience so kid-oriented it should come with a pacifier and a selection of Huggies”. Box office predictions for the weekend put Escape 2 Africa at number one, with BlogCritics Magazine guessing a $52 million intake.
