New York Zoo escapees Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippopotamus decide to go on a quest to return home in a scheme dreamed up by their crafty penguin and chimpanzee friends.
Unfortunately, the plan doesn't go quite as anticipated when they find themselves stranded in Monte Carlo. In order to escape a tenacious animal control captain, the group catches a ride with a rundown travelling circus. When they find out the circus is headed for America, they come up with an act so they can pose as part of the show.
Definitely funny, same as the previous ones. The French Canadian circus comments weren't derogatory.. they were actually completely accurate (read about Cirque du Soleil). The work ethic one was annoying, and I'm also not sure where it came from, like the other posters here. I imagine one of the writers had a bad experience once, and that's it..
This was the worst movie out all 3. Hated the "canuckaphobia" comments. It was a real let-down.
