Madagascar

Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe live together at New York's Central Park Zoo. Marty tries running away from the zoo, hoping to live in the wild. When Alex, Gloria and Melman break out of their cages too, they get caught and end up being zoo transferred. But they all accidentally end up on Madagascar, where they meet King Julien and his kingdom of lemurs.

Factual error: In the sequence where the animals get on the first subway, it says they are on the 59th St subway. But, there is no 59th St subway in NY. The only subway station close to 59 is the 57th St subway.

Suggested correction: While the other correction lists a 59th street, that's in Brooklyn. There is one in Manhattan though, 59th - Columbus Circle, which is also the south-west corner of Central Park.

Question: This applies to both Madagascar movies. Does anybody know why Sasha Baron Cohen (Julian the lemur) never shows his face and is barely mentioned in the DVDs for these movies?

Answer: Sacha Baron Cohen is a very private man; he is rarely seen in public, and when he is in public, he is usually dressed as some of his other movie roles (Borat, Bruno, etc.) He has even mentioned once that he wants his characters to be famous, but he wants to live a normal life, so he is rarely interviewed by press.
