Marty the Zebra (Rock), a neurotic resident of the Central Park Zoo, suffers from an identity crisis—is he black with white stripes or vice versa?—and runs away from his coddled lifestyle. When his three pals catch up with him at Grand Central, the conspicuous quartet is captured by animal control and somehow ends up on the title island, a vivid paradise inhabited by a pack of raving lemurs. Trouble arises, however, when Alex the Lion (Stiller) and his carnivorous instincts are awakened. Lame scatalogical gags and worn pop-culture parodies abound, but the CGI animation romp is somewhat redeemed by the scene-stealing appearances of several supporting characters.
