Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Plot hole: The newspaper headline showing young Alex being rescued from a crate is dated April 8, 1972. In the next scene, we see young Alex dancing in the Central Park Zoo, and watching him are Marty, Melman and Gloria as baby animals. This makes no sense at all. In the first film, Marty celebrates his tenth birthday. Key word: tenth. It is also known that the scenes of the main characters as adults take place in the present i.e. Alex confessing to breaking Marty's iPod. Seeing how the animals age quicker than humans, Marty, let alone his three friends, would have to have been born in the mid-1990s and the flashback scenes could not have taken place in 1972.

Plot hole: In the first movie, Alex never had that mark on his paw, yet he is shown with this mark on his paw in Africa.

Continuity mistake: When Alex was a baby and was put on the Zoo rock, for a few seconds his head has leopard spots on it. (00:04:55)
