Blu-ray review: 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted' Rainbow Wig Pack

The third installment of the DreamWorks Animation series is a rare animal: a sequel that easily steals the show from its predecessors.

“Madagascar 3” packs a ridiculous number of colorful characters, silly sight gags, witty one-liners, musical interludes, exotic locales, action set pieces and even a few heartfelt moments into 93 minutes. Co-directors McGrath, Conrad Vernon and Eric Darnell pull off quite a juggling act, deftly ensuring that fun doesn't get lost in the sequel's far-fetched, jam-packed storyline.

Inspired by Rock's infectious adlibbed ditty “Afro Circus,” the Rainbow Wig Pack includes a child-size multicolored hairpiece along with the two-disc Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy combo. The Blu-ray gives viewers the option of watching the movie with the directors' commentary, trivia track or picture-in-picture Animators' Corner, which incorporates storyboards, concept art and interviews.
