Discover the secrets of the most entertaining and mysterious birds in the global espionage game: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private now must join forces with the chic spy organization, the North Wind, led by Agent Classified (we could tell you his name, but then … you know), voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch to stop the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine, voiced by John Malkovich, from taking over the world.

It was no surprise that the whole theater would be laughing out loud as we watched the Penguins doing what the Penguins do best. Get stuck in a bind and work themselves out of it. From the youngest movie goer to the oldest, not one single person was quiet, myself included.

I really loved what they did with the humor. They weaved in adult humor, that only adults would get throughout the whole film in certain sayings or names called out. Everything about the movie was great. The storyline from start to finish kept as busy following along and cracking up. The animation is so vibrant and well done. The 3D effects were comfortable, nothing that was to much to handle on the eyes. The sound effects and music paired very well to the movie itself. The voice-overs were chosen well for each character. All in all, the movie as great. A must-see with the whole family.

In this Dreamworks Animation movie we watch how the 4 penguins came to be a group. And we see how they ended up away from were they were born. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private end up surviving the impossible and becoming the spy Penguins that they are. Then after years and there stint in Madagascar, they are come across another spy organization, and they must team up to save all the Penguins from Zoos around the world from the evil Dr. Octavius Brine. Of course teaming up with The North Wind, isn't as easy as it sounds. But slowly and surely they finally end up making it all came together and saving the day. And of course I love that the egg that was almost abandoned before he was born, saved the day in the end. Good job Private.

Highly recommend to go out and see this film this holiday season. Your kiddos and yourself will be happy that you do. Be careful where you place the popcorn, because you might end of spilling it from all the uncontrollable laughter.

Alex: The movie was super funny the whole time. 

Armani & Casen: It was funny and our favorite part was when the Penguins did the dance and were slapping each other butts. (uncontrollable laughter)
