I agree with Beethoven's opinion about respect and opinions and stuff but if we're talking about horrid scores now, I'd have to say Madacascar was not very good at all, especially when compared to some Zimmer's previous works. While the popular music worked well in the movie, the original compositions written for the movie are just rudimentary string music that doesn't even go well with the picture. However, that's not to say he's a terrible composer; he's probably one of the best (note I said "one of the best" not "the best") in the buissiness today.
By the way, I find it rather amusing that there is a very similar thread that was posted on the Empire Strikes Back message board.
