Awesome / Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Go To
  • In this movie, round two between Alex and Nana - This time he fights back.
    • Though not very well... an old lady giving a full-grown male lion a tittie twister and a kick in the nuts has to be seen to be believed.
      • At least the penguins get revenge on behalf of all the animals when they wallop Nana later. As well as ram her with a jeep.
  • The writers get one when the animals are searching for water, with these two incredibly clever lines that really put the important things in life into perspective:
    Gloria: Any water?
    Moto Moto: No, just more diamonds and gold.
  • The "Alex on the Spot" scene. When Zuba was at gunpoint, Alex saves the day by reminding the hunters who he is: Alex the Lion! Just watch it.
  • The climax is worth mentioning.
    • After Alex succeeded in reminding them who he was, Nana was still determined to feast on him. She had her gun ready and took a shot, but the two lions were fortunately saved by the Zoosters and company on the monkey-powered plane.

    • Boarding, Alex suggests they leave before they're doomed; which was misinterpreted as he wanted them to break the dam.
    Marty: Skipper, Alex wants to take out the dam!
    Skipper: Alright! (over intercom) But it's his funeral.
    Marty: What?
    Skipper: Hard to port!
    Gloria: Aye-aye, Skippy!
    Melman: Bring it on! BRING IT ON! WHOO!!!
    • When the plane charges towards the dam, Nana runs out of bullets and swishes her handbag around and doesn't even flinch when it comes closer and breaks the dam, returning the water.
    Nana: Bring it on... bad kitties!
  • Alex tricking Makunga by giving him Nana's handbag, then unleashing Nana to attack him. And considering what an utter bastard Makunga was in every single scene he was in, this was quite satisfying.
  • Meta example: In the scene where baby Alex gets to New York, you can see the Twin Towers in the background. The creators of the movie were brave enough to put the Twin Towers in their movie, saying that "You can't change history".

How well does it match the trope?
