The furry creatures are back and this time they are stranded on a desert island after an incident where Alvin thought that it would be a good idea to go kite sailing. His little stunt makes the Chippettes and the other chipmunks stranded on an island where they meet Zoe (Jenny Slate) who has been on the island for 8-9 years. Dave (Jason Lee) along with Ian (David Cross) search for the fuzzy pop stars as the island that both the Chipmunks and Chippettes and Dave and Ian are on is about to be engulfed by an active volcano!
The movie was really funny. Growing up with the Chipmunks was good and everything, but the live action movies are really entertaining for all ages. Whereas there is adult humor in them, it wasn’t bad like Spy Kids 4 and their “Shi—taci Mushrooms” line. Critics may slam this movie by calling it horrible, but it wasn’t a waste of my time and money and the kid enjoyed every moment with it. It was a great movie to spend your time on and it is filled with the comedic skits of Alvin and the rest of the Chipmunks and the Chippettes. It is good to see that children movies can be enjoyed by all ages and not have to resort to crude adult humor all the time.
This isn’t an epic movie where you are going to “have” to see it in the theaters, but you are going to laugh at the jokes and be entertained throughout the movie. Alvin is a pain as always and it is funny how Simon gets bitten by a spider and then has an alter ego named Simone, a wise adventure seeking chipmunk. However it was a little corny in some parts That is why I am not going to give this a full score. It is great for kids, but you don’t need to spend your money on.
It is a kid movie, it is cute and you are going to laugh. It was better then the first and second ones and it was a great movie to watch. Definitely a movie to take the kids out to this month and it is not something where you are going to regret seeing later. What more can you say about the Chipmunks movies. You either hate them or you love them. For the kids, this is one of the best movies to take them to. They will love it.
