But that depends on coherence, and what have here are several sties or skits smeared into each other. There are the obligatory Scrat sequences that give some relief from the movie itself. But you can only go so far with pratfalls.
We’ve got Buck who is somewhat entertaining but he lacks what King Julian of ’Madagascar’ had which is changing the story by his presence. This guy just has his own chase story that looks like it was written by folks in another city.
So that leaves our regular cast with the thinnest of narratives. Nearly every kids cartoon has more richness, introspection, and in jokes than this.
