Dubbed the squeakquel (sequel) the world's most famous chipmunks are back. And this time around there are 3 more new chippettes (female chipmunks) in the block. Me and my friends (and we think all in the cinema) had some funny thoughts in their head when we heard the guy in the movie said The Chippettes. LOLX! OK, let's get back to the review now. *spoiler read on*
The movie takes off after the first and the chipmunks, which consists of Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray) & Theodore (Jesse McCartney) are on tour around the world when a freak accident happen causing Dave (Jason Lee). Before he dozed off he sent the chipmunks back to their home and wanted them to go through life as normal or close to any teenagers, so they were sent to school. They were supposed to be supervised by Dave's aunt but due to another freak accident (yes, that is why we called it freak accident), the 3 of them are left to Toby (Zachary Levi). Toby is a grown up who is jobless, doesn't know what he wants in life and always ptu ptu ptu with his fingers (you will figure this out when you watch the movie). Ian Hawk (David Cross) is back and wanted revenge on the chipmunks and somehow the new chippettes gave him the best bullet to do so. But as the movie goes, the bad guys will lose and the good will win.
The movie talks about brotherly love among the three chipmunks as it is put on trial during one part of the movie. It's a lovely movie to watch with some really amazing musics from Katey Perry, Beyonce and Flo-Rida to name a few. Theodore is forever so cute in the movie with Simon being the smartest and Alvin learning that family is always more important than anything in the world. The new chippettes comprises of Brittany (Christina Applegate), Eleanor (Amy Poehler) and Jeannette (Anna Faris). Nothing spectacular but it's really nice watching it with a bunch of friends on a weekend and enjoying the cute chipmunks jumping up and down and singing around. (Rating: 3.8 out of 5.0)
