Madagascar

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.

Suggested correction: There is definitely a 59th street subway station: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/59th_Street_ (BMT_Fourth_Avenue_Line).

Continuity mistake: When Alex's crate gets knocked off the ship, there is water dripping into the crate, yet in the following shots the crate is completely dry.

Suggested correction: Just because it appears dry on the surface doesn't mean there isn't water between the slats of wood making it drip.

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)

Trivia: There is a scene when the lemurs are showing a book called "To Serve Lemur". This is similar to one of the classic episodes of The Twilight Zone, "To Serve Man" when the "aliens" allegedly come in peace but actually want to eat the people of earth.

Trivia: In the scene where Marty the Zebra is building his shelter, Alex gets jealous and looks to a basketball with a handprint face with grass for hair and says, "Shut up, Spalding". This is a reference to the film Cast Away, in which Tom Hanks' character, Chuck Noland, starts talking to a Wilson volleyball and gives it the name "Wilson."

Trivia: When Alex (voiced by Ben Stiller) is taking pictures for the crowd in the beginning he strikes the famous "blue steel" pose from another one of Ben Stiller's movies, "Zoolander".

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: 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.
