Madagascar

Question: Why did Julien and Maurice save Marty when wild Alex was about to bite him? Why did they throw a coconut at Alex? It was none of their business so why did they interfere?

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.

Question: Does anyone know how long lions can survive without food?

Answer: According to one website, a lion can gorge for 2-3 days on a kill, rest for 24 hours, and show little interest in hunting again until the sixth day.

Question: How did Marty free himself from the animal box after falling into the ocean? This obviously happened before the scene where he was surfing on dolphins, but it is never shown nor mentioned how he managed to get out of this box.

Answer: It is entirely possible his box hit something in the water and broke or was weakened enough for Marty to escape.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Marty finds the snow-bullet in Alex's mouth, he puts it in the Alex thing collection, but the collection wasn't there before and it disappears after that. (00:01:55)
