Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked
Coming on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Download March 27th!
The Chipmunks, Chipettes and their caretaker Dave Sevelle (Jason Lee; “My Name is Earl”) embark on a trip of a lifetime aboard the Carnival Dream cruise ship. Seeking fun and excitement, the Chipmunks turn the luxury cruise liner into their own personal playground. But the ultimate vacation quickly becomes a disaster when the Chipmunks, Dave and Carnival cruise pelican mascot, who turns out to be the chipmunks’ old manager, Ian Hawke (David Cross; Megamind), accidentally fall overboard and find themselves ‘Chipwrecked’ on a remote island. Stuck in an unfamiliar territory, the six furry castaways are separated from Dave and must figure out a way to survive on their own for the first time in their lives.
My kids were incredibly excited when this movie arrived in the mail. I mean unbelievably beyond incredibly excited. We had to watch it the instant I had it out of the envelope and we have watched it at least a dozen times since. I admit that it is not my favourite movie of all time but the kids love it! I asked them what they thought and here is what they had to say:
Olivia (age 5) - I like it. I like it when Theodore's girlfriend goes "my precious" to the mango because that's funny. I like the songs and the dance party. And I like that Alvin goes different for building a shelter and then the girl chipmunk says "since I'm not the pretty girl anymore maybe I should build a shelter too" and I like that Simon turns into Simone and I like that Dave yells ALVIN so loudly and I like that Alvin yells NOOOOOOO because he yells "SIMON are you even listening to me?" because it's funny. And there's more that I like too. I like that .... (and then she continued to tell me things that she liked for a good 15 minutes. At least)
Owen (age 8)- It's awesome. I really like it because it's funny and cool. And really liked how Ian is in the pelican costume the whole time. That movie is hilarious.
You really can't argue with reviews like that!
Do I think it is a movie for grown-ups? No. Probably not. But if you have kids you can be pretty sure it will entertain them for hours :).
