Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel Movie Rating: 4

The story starts with Alvin, Simon and Theodore doing their best Jonas Brothers impersonations on stage in front of millions of fans. All goes well until Alvin accidentally loosens some scaffolding that catapults poor Dave into some electrical equipment. With their manager out of commission in the hospital, the Chipmunks are left in the care of Dave’s clueless cousin Toby. The Chipmunks think they’ve got it made until they find out that before his accident, Dave planned for trio to go to school!

School Daze

Once enrolled in school, the Chipmunks are forced to put their pop stardom on hold until the school’s principal (who’s such a fan she has a Chipmunks tattoo!) suggests the trio enter a singing contest to save the school’s music program. While practicing for the show, Alvin gets sidetracked by sports and the plot starts to look a lot like High School Musical. Will Alvin choose the big game or the big show? Maybe he should ask Troy for advice.

The Chipettes!

The Chipminks figure they have the competition in the bag until they get their world rocked by their all-girl doubles, the Chipettes! The Chipettes are recruited by Ian Hawke, the same slimy record executive from the first Chipmunks movie, and unknowingly participate in his evil scheme to upstage the Chipmunks.

The Bottom Line

If you didn’t like the first Chipmunks movie, the odds are you won’t be impressed by the squeakquel. The plot is so thin and full of so many holes, you’re going to wish the producers spent more money on writers and less on hiring big name actors (Jesse McCartney, Justin Long, Amy Poehler, etc.) whose voices are unrecognizable in chipmunk form. But Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel isn’t trying to change the world—check it out for some brainless (but harmless) fun.
