Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (DVD)

Alvin, Simon and Theodore are back. If you didn’t get enough of them the first time around, then you’ll be happy to see they’re joined by the Chipettes. However, Dave (played by Jason Lee) is missing from most of the film. To provide comedic support in his place this time is Dave’s cousin (played by Chuck’s Zachary Levi). There’s not much depth in a film like this. This is strictly family entertainment, with a little bit of publicity thrown in for certain singers (Hi Beyonce!). But overall, it is an enjoyable film that kids and adults can enjoy together. It’s got some pretty funny scenes, and some really cheesy ones. But hey, we’re talking about the Chipmunks here! So for a family comedy, this one is a hit.
