To be honest after seeing the movie the first time, I was in queue for a second helping. Those penguins crack me up big time and they are just too cute and wonderful to be overlooked.

It is about time they had their own motion picture, about them and them alone. The TV series that airs on Nickeldeon, is always a riot of laughs as there is nothing these penguins will not do to get to the end of the pressing matter at hand. And in this movie, they showed the same tenacity and we even get to see how the group was formed.

The movie had many inside jokes to keep you aching for more, and the voice casting was exceptional. We had in this movie, Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Conrad Vernon and Christopher Knights voicing Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private respectively. We also had Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkoich as the villain octopus Dave or Dr. Octavius Brine.

The question is, what is our beloved penguins about now?

The answer is, they were out looking for an adventure.

The movie stats with an introduction to our penguins and how they requited Private. The group has been together since they have been chicks, and they decided from then to be different from the rest, this led them through various ups and downs in zoos, until the movie catches up with the present development after Madagascar 3: Europe Most Wanted (2012).

The group get accosted by a villainous octopus who is out for revenge against the Penguin’s cuteness. This led to them meeting NW which stands for "North Wind", an elite undercover task force who go about rescuing animals in need.
The group consists of, their leader a gray wolf named Classified (Benedict Cumberbatch) by Skipper, a harp seal named Short Fuse (Ken Jeong), a polar bear named Corporal (Peter Stormare), and an intelligent snowy owl named Eva (Annet Mahendru).

The Octopus Dave, wants to rid the world of the Penguin’s cuteness and the Penguins have to stop him, or they will no longer be cute (sounded better in my head).

The movie had cool lines like:
1. Nicholas, cage them
2. Drew, Barry more power
3. Kevin bake on
4. Charlize stay on them
5. Robin write this down

After watching this movie I hope that the box office and home media sales will bring in the financial investment made for us to see this movie, because it will be sad if a sequel is not made. So I hope the word of mouth will drive many to go see this.
It is worth it for both adults and kids alike.
