Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

January 10, 2012

When we saw the trailer of the third Chipmunks movie in the movie house a few months ago, I certainly had no intentions of watching after the patiently sitting through the first two. In fact, the Squeakuel had been on constant replay on Star Movies over these holidays. I have had enough of their naughty and sassy squeaky voices! Curiously, the kids still wanted to watch this so I also did, albeit grudgingly. 

What should have been a pleasant "family" cruise with Dave and the Chipmunks and the Chippettes becomes a disaster because of Alvin's mischief with a kite (what else?) Everybody gets accidentally whisked off the ship and later marooned on a deserted island. There we see scenes rehashed off Tarzan, Castaway and even Raiders of the Lost Ark! Then, enter a volcanic eruption and a treasure hunter to provide thrills. Of course, in the end, everybody gets back to dry land safe and sound, as expected.

OK, the Chipmunks and the Chippettes are cute, but that is about it. The pop songs chosen were not too well-rendered. The comedy of the story line was lame and painfully cheesy and corny. Jason Lee is just sleepwalking though his portrayal of Dave. David Cross was in a dreadful feathery pelican costume the entire film. This is strictly for young kids. Adults who get dragged into this by their kids should just grin and bear it, and find that silver lining (family bonding probably), how ever thin it is. This should have gone directly to DVD.

  5. You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually
    something which I believe I might never understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and extremely vast for me.
    I am looking ahead on your subsequent post, I will
    attempt to get the hold of it!

  6. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole
    my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a
    forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to share it with someone!
