Simon Thompson describes the Madagascar spin-off, Penguins of Madagascar, as "ridiculously entertaining."
Though the plot may be irrelevant, it's a fun, cute film which manages to not only keep children enthralled, but also the parents taking them to watch it.
The good fun comes to life with a stellar voice-over cast, including Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malcovich.
Less winning is Men, Women and Children, which Simon has mixed feelings on. Although not a bad film - and featuring an excellent, serious turn from Adam Sandler - the drama falls flat. Despite a modern, timely story of online relationships, Simon thinks the film labours its point and is a little dull. For more about the film, see our interviews with the cast.
