Forgettable fun

No 7 times Oscar winner just some classic CGI animal family fun. Lots of chases, a plane crash, saucy animal scenes and more if you find the DVD in the yard sales . In consumerism of course safari. This year Madagascar came back with the Youtube show.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
