"Alvin and the Chipmunks" is a franchise that's been getting muchpopularity with many kids of passing generations. The film series,based on the 80's to 90's cartoon, based on the 50's album, tells thestory of the relationship of Dave Sullivan taking care of 3 chipmunkswho become rock stars, and it's been told as it's been. The film seriesis something that most people find to be anything, but masterpiecematerial.With the first film, it was a decent film that introduced the newgeneration to Alvin, Simon and Theodore, on how they met Dave Suvil,played by Jason Lee, but didn't do as good as was expected. The film,however, was far from terrible, so it was something one could watch andenjoy from time to time. The second film however, didn't do as well asthe first. It felt too much like the first film, with David Cross beingthe film's antagonist again, and repeating some of the same jokes. Withthe new film, only four words would describe it.It's not the 'Squekquel'.The new film does try to work in a new kind of concept and bringsomething new into it, but mostly falls flat due to most clichÃ©s. Thisis the only movie where David Cross isn't the villain and it doesn'tinvolve any of the chipmunks or chipettes in cages. I do give creditfor trying, but it's not enough to say that it's as good as theoriginal. I'm not saying that it's TERRIBLE or anything, but it's notgood either. Some of the jokes in the beginning along with some sceneswith David Cross are what I seemed to have laughed. The pop-culturereferences and songs sung in the film are sort of recognizable, butsome aren't ones that I'm not very fond of.Another thing that is kind of upsetting is the cast of characters. Ifthey're going to alter the voices anyway, then they could've justgotten some new actors to do it anyway. But then again, some people aredesperate for work and will do anything for a paycheck. Would I sayit's bad? Mostly, but it has it's moments sometimes. Would I paytickets for this in the theater? Technically, I did, but for others,I'd wait to rent it.

Yesterday I went to the movie with my son. 'Please daddy, please daddy,can we go???!!' Well....okay. I'm glad for him that he liked it...buteven he (10 years old) liked it a 'little'. I heard nobody laugh, forthe whole movie and all the seats are taken! There are some parts thatwere somehow funny, but that's it. The baddest, really most annoyingthing of the movie is, that everything where you have to pay attentionto (most of the time, really little parts on the big screen) is infocus and 'everything' else is 'totally' out of focus! Also the fastmoves are most of the time out of focus. Yeah, I felt really badsitting there and have to watch the movie. It was a bad mistake andguess the makers were on acid or something when they invent thisstrange thing they calling a movie.

Even being an adult, I really enjoyed these furry animals once again. Ialways enjoy seeing them around Christmas time. I hope there are moreto come.The facial emotions on these creatures is amazing. Could havehad more speaking but overall it was cute! Others I was with said thatthe voices (singing) was getting annoying and with the singing I wouldsomewhat agree. I would have liked seeing more of the Carnival Dreamship since I have sailed on that ship before. The scene on the adultdeck was real funny. Would have liked seeing them play practical jokeson some of the passengers, or even be a in one of the production showsaboard the ship. Or even order cabin service and run up Dave's bill.Love those furry creatures, though!

If I were to make a guess, this whole thing began with "so, anyone gotany ideas how we can take the film crew on a cruise?".If you'd like to expose your impressionable little ones to a parade ofskinny, scantily clad women, dancing and drinking in a casino, thenyou've got a winner. I'm not sure if they could shake their T&A muchmore.Simon gives a slot machine one pull and it rains money.... do you smellVegas sponsor?... Yeah, that's how it happens.I'd give it a 0 if possible.Someone tell me how I can make my children un-see this.

My review will be short since i don't have much to say. You must beeither 2 or 3 years old and drunk or high on drugs to enjoy this movie.Once again the director proves how bad he is and that he destroys thechildhood of hundreds of kids.The movie is just awful and adults and kids above the age of 8 willfind it plain stupid and awful too.Even my 3 year old cousin found thatawful.The whole theater was either sleeping or just leaving.I wish i could give it 0 out of 10 The funny thing is that I enjoyedthe first one and i found the second great for young audiences.But thisis not for young or any audiences at all. If jigsaw made a new trap inSAW(Which is not gonna happen) he should feature a trap that should benamed : Escape from the theater while watching Alvin and the chipmunksChip-wrecked. Awful.Watch it if you want to suicide

Ugh. Can somebody please screw those goddamn movie critics because theydon't know the meaning of good family film movies. "The Smurfs" didwell at the box office and so does "Alvin and the Chipmunks:Chip-wrecked." I thought the movie was somewhat a disappointment to theseries, but I didn't find it. It's a great and funny comedy where Alvinand the gang are lost in a deserted island and Ian and Dave must savethem without getting into trouble. I don't care what the critics aresaying, but if you're a Chipmunks fan, go see the movie! And next time,it's time for critics to erase the hate and start being positive forfamily-friendly entertainment.

Alvin's shenanigans have gotten The Chipmunks into plenty of troublebefore, but when Dave takes the 'Munks and their female counterpartsThe Chipettes on a cruise, Alvin's horseplay goes completely overboard- literally. Stranded on a remote island, stomachs growl and tensionsflare as The Chipmunks and Chipettes struggle to adapt to life withouttheir usual creature comforts. Chipwrecked begins abruptly. There's no semblance of a back story orattempt at character introduction. Critics may see this as a cinematicfaux pas, but these are established characters and if you can't deducethat they must board a ship in order to eventually be "Chipwrecked",maybe something a little less plot-centric would be a better choice foryou. A Chipette rendition of the Go-Go's "Vacation" sets the scene andis the first of a fast and furious onslaught of songs. Musical numbersare better integrated in Chipwrecked than its predecessor TheSqueakuel. Chipwrecked spares us from characters bursting into song orbrief snippets of tracks squeezed in merely to secure a place on themovie's soundtrack.The story moves quickly. After their unintentional departure from theship, the result of one of Alvin's hair-brained schemes, we begin tosee different sides of the Chipmunks' personalities as theirrelationships are put to the test. Alvin emerges as an unlikelyworry-wart, taking on the task of keeping morale up and organizing thegroup's efforts to stay fed and sheltered. Simon undergoes a PeterParker-like transformation when he suffers a venomous spider bite andtransmogrifies into a free- spirited playboy with a French accent. Hischarms coax Jeanette out of her shell, leaving Brittany incensed thather sister is getting so much attention. The usually bashful Theodoreis also encouraged by Simon (who now refers to himself as "Simone") totry bungee jumping and later invite Eleanor to dance. The previouslyignorable Eleanor spends much of Chipwrecked on the sidelines, havingsuffered a sprained ankle, until she emerges as a heroine at the film'sclimax, leading the group to Jeanette, who has been 'munk-napped byZoe. Ahh, yes. Zoe. The real wild card of the movie is the new humancharacter whose origin is somewhat mysterious. She claims to have beenstranded when her UPS cargo plane crashed (a spoof of the Tom Hanksfilm Castaway) but emerges as a potential villain when it is revealedshe came to the island seeking a lost treasure. She is neither a helpnor a hindrance for much of the story but makes for better laughs thanthe bumbling Toby in Squeakuel. As original characters go, she'sprobably the best yet, aside perhaps from Claire Wilson in 2007's Alvinand the Chipmunks. Critics have raked Chipwrecked over the coals while fans graded it anA- on the site Yahoo! Movies. It still holds the #3 spot at the boxoffice and has grossed almost $100 million. I think the question to askyourself before seeing this movie is "am I a fan or am I a critic?" Chipwrecked is funny. Most of its laughs are references to pop-culture,including viral internet videos, one-liners from other movies(Castaway, James Bond), and even a Sarah Palin joke. The Chipmunks AREa pop- culture reference and always have been. But the characters playon each other as well, and the scenarios themselves are funny on theirown. One of my favorite laughs is when, after starting a fire, TheChipmunks wonder what to do next. Alvin shrugs and proceeds to lead thegang in a round of "Kumbaya". The 2007 Chipmunk movie was full orsubtle humor and a little of that has been revived in Chipwrecked.The entire pace of the movie feels just a little too fast. Songs,although well integrated, do come quickly at first. There are no lessthan three full-blown musical numbers in the first ten minutes, plusanother song from the soundtrack playing as background music. Characterdevelopment feels rushed at times too, such as when Simon is compelledto rescue Jeanette but simply declares he "can't do it". Moments laterhe swings to the rescue on a vine. Ian Hawke's redemption of sorts isalso awkward and somewhat inexplicable after being a villain for solong, and Zoe is quickly forgiven for 'munk-napping Jeanette.Chipwrecked squeezes a lot of story and action in to 87 minutes andit's definitely a tight fit.I found two other things strange about the movie. One is that there isalmost no implication of peril at being dumped into the middle of theocean. I also found the movie somewhat insensitive to heavyset people.At one point, Alvin trades a plateful of donuts to a husky boy inexchange for his toy. Ian also refers to Theodore and Eleanor as the"chubby one" and "girl chubby one" and implies that they areuninteresting.Chipwrecked works because it doesn't try to be a bigger movie than itis. It's a "threequel", and a kid's movie. It manages to be endearingwithout being sickly-sweet. The animation looks great. At times Ithought the Chipmunks' movements were a little too jerky and quick, butit still looks better than the first two films. The characters areexpressive and interact seamlessly with their environment. There areplenty of laughs. More sophisticated humor wouldn't appeal to theyounger crowd, and would probably seem out of place to the adults inthe room. The Chipmunks are a pop-culture litmus but are hardly onetrick ponies. Each has their own identity and their antics supplyplenty of unique humor on their own. Chipwrecked may be the moviecritics love to hate, but the rest of us could do a lot worse.

I saw this with my daughter as a dollar-movie special. It's terrible;it has some of the usual problems of many sequels, the CGI is not up totoday's standards, and (surprise, surprise) the plot is lame andpredictable. It could be even worse, hence the two-star rating, ratherthan one, but it's a real waste of effort. I had not seen the previousAlvin and the chipmunk movies, and I was a bit lost given that viewerswere assumed to know not only the chipmunk characters but also some ofthe others. When the 'bad guy' from a previous movie was revealed, itwas unclear to me why he was such a bad guy. It remained somewhatunclear even when he turned into one of the 'good guys' at the end. Andif his switch wasn't abrupt enough, what about the change of heartshown by the girl who'd been searching for treasure? But even from thebeginning the characters were unbelievable - from the moment at thevery beginning when they were walking towards the ship and I keptwondering "what is he looking at?" Pathetic.

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED - Rating: C+ I have been achipmunk fan since before the Live Action films came out (I considermyself generation 2.5 being born in '95 and being a fan of both old andnew). I loved the first two, Squeakuel being my favorite. But, I can'tgive this movie as good of a review as the other ones. The singing seemed forced and not as free flowing as what it once was.They just wanted to cram as many songs into it as possible. I didn'tcare for the song selection other than "Vacation" and "Born thisway/Ain't no Stoppin' us Now/Firework". And it's constant singing every5 minutes. If you like the singing part, then this will be up youralley. But, I found it exhaustive. As for the plot, I get it. But,there was much to be desired. It's too short, and there's not a lot toit at all. It also seemed a LOT more serious than the other movies.It's supposed to be in the "CGI/Live Action Family Comedy" genre, butthere's not a lot of real "funny" parts except a few attempts to throwin humor from other movies and videos (Even some from youtube)********SPOILERS******** Alvin is being Alvin again in the beginning.But that's pretty much it. The plot was quite predictable. There wastoo much foreshadowing. If they wanted to improve the story, add somesuspense and then we'll talk. After the Chipmunks & Chipettes were stranded, things went for theworse. The way everyone's personality was changed wasn't the best ideafor the plot, and it really changed the outlook on the movie. Becauseof the personality change, things became too obvious. After the cavewas found and the volcano became active, the plot was laid down rightin front of you and you knew instantly that there was going to be arace against time dealing with the treasure. It became obvious that Zoeinstantly that Zoe was crazy looking for the treasure and that shewould do something stupid to get it. Personally, I found her just to beanother random person that they added just to stretch time.I understand that the movie was made for a younger crowd, but I stillam a true chipmunk fan. I just can't come to truly love the movie likethe previous ones. My advice, if you didn't care for the previousmovies, don't waste the money. If you are a die hard fan, then it maybe worth renting for a day just to see it (Redbox is only 1.20 afterall) It's not the worst, but it's a far cry from the best.

I have 3 kids and have sat through some truly awful movies but this isunbearable. My children loved the first 2 and they were OK to watch foran adult, especially the first one. This one, however, is absolutelydespicable. I get that Hollywood is all about the money, especially nowdays with "the brand" but really??? How anyone in a position of powerat a studio could allow this movie to be released is void of aconscience. It is truly unwatchable. DO NOT spend your money on this"movie". We kept waiting for something funny or interesting and nothingever appeared. My kids waited for a couple years for this and we're SOdisappointed. If the writers of this movie are gainfully employed, Ihave missed my calling as a writer. Bummer.

My Mother,My eight year old son and I, enjoyed ourselves. Chipwreckedstarted of questionably, but honestly it wasn't as bad as some uptightreviewers may have made it seam. If you are a member of the targetdemographic of this film (5 to 10 years old) this movie is great. It'sfamily friendly though a little hard for grownups to swallow in someareas, it does it's job quite well. It was pretty much what i expectedand let's face it it's not Gone With The Wind, it's the Chipmunks.Check your movie snobbery at the door and have a good time. I actuallylaughed out loud three or four times and more importantly my son washappy, and really, that's who this movie is for.

Before I start, I'd just like to say how awful it is reading all thenasty comments from many IMDb members about Mike Mitchell's"Chipwrecked". The majority of members and users of this site are infact adults whose reviews and ratings you have read show personaldistaste to a film aimed to the age group of young children. It's nosurprise that they didn't enjoy it as much as they should have! As a teenager, I had the pleasure of taking my three younger siblingsto the cinemas to see Chipwrecked. They had all been, and I along withthem to see the previous movies in the sequel and were so excited forthis one. For me, I had absolutely loved the first film in the sequel,Alvin and the Chipmunks when I went to see it as a 10-year-old in 2006.The storyline and characters were excellent and it has become one of myfavorites right up to this day, seeing it about ten times on DVD. Lastyear, I found the 2nd movie to the sequel a total disappointment withits poor plot and lack of interest compared to the previous film.However, I found Chipwrecked pleasantly enjoyable and I have to alsosay that this movie was better that the first two with the storyline ofthe playful chipmunks being shipwrecked on a deserted island. Thistime, Dave (Jason Lee), the loving and caring human father of thechipmunks is back which he for some reason disappeared in the 2ndmovie. That main highlight of Chipwrecked, the 3 chipmunks andchipettes were really interesting due to their character development;Simon who suddenly turns into a Frenchman, Alvin who changes his usualfun and outgoing attitude to becoming more responsible and Brittany whobecomes smart. There is also another person marooned on the island, Zoe(Jenny Slate) who might be just a little different to a normal person.Thee antagonist of the sequel, Ian (David Cross) is also back as amember of the shipwrecked part and this time he shows an interestinggood side to him. Chipwrecked is also a good laugh for the audiencecontaining many jokes and funny scenes with the chipmunks as well asgreat songs to which they sing too (Lady Gaga, BeyoncÃ©, Willow Smith,Katy Perry, etc) . The singing was great and really enjoyable althoughI wish each song was longer that just the chorus. Who doesn't likesinging and dancing chipmunks? In conclusion, all children (and maybe a few adults) will loveChipwrecked with the cute and adorable chipmunks characters, greatstoryline, funny jokes and great singing.

I remember when I was a kid and this was popular. I guess all thingsare new again. This is the third of the Alvin movies that have beenmade. It's a blend of live action and computer animation. The story iscute and will engage kids of 5 and younger but I did not think itneeded to be on the big screen. This was a movie that was fine on astraight to DVD release. A mix of pop music and funny life lessonsabout family that only rates a yellow light.Alvin and his friends are going on a cruise to attend an internationalaward show. They get into typical Chipmunk shenanigans on the cruse andin a series of events they get swept off the ship and land on anisland. Dave (Jason Lee) and his arch nemesis, and previous Chipmunkmanager, Ian (David Cross) inadvertently join forces to rescue them.

I grew up watching the Chipmunks on TV and I hoped that it would havemade me feel a little nostalgic watching this film and I did. This isour third go around with those lovable little rodents and I enjoyed it.It warmed my heart that I saw so many parents and their kids watchingat the movies today because there is an important message in the filmfor kids. Alvin causes all kinds of mischief at the beginning and whenSimon gets bit by the spider and undergoes that drastic personalitychange, Alvin has to take charge and get them off the island. I thinkthat is a great message for kids that parents should discuss after theywatch the film. I wanted to take the filmmakers to task on one pointfor their lack of originality. That flaky girl on the island is anobvious rip off of Tom Hanks in Cast Away.

Why would it be a problem for chipmunks to be stranded in thewilderness? They are animals, right? Yes, they're animals, but theseguys have been out of trees so long, they've kind of lost theirroots.With lots of hilarious dance sequences and great vocals, themusical numbers make up for the rather thin plot. With a tone similarto other animated-live-action hybrid films like Russell Brand's Hop andWho Framed Roger Rabbit?, this movie gives adults some time with theirfavorite My Name Is Earl actor and children time with their favoritesinging chipmunks.For the younger audience it will keep themintrigued.I personally enjoyed the first A and C as an adult. Thissequel didn't keep my attention as much.
ravsten428 04 May 2013
I wanted to watch Chipwrecked while still in theaters but ended upwatching it on DVD instead. Boy am I glad I waited.This movie does not have much going for it. I enjoyed the first two ofthe series; my favorite being the first installment of the film and thesecond one being just enjoyable but not on the same level as the first.Here we have little plot, lack of character development and a ratherforgettable film.There were some parts of the film that were funny. I enjoyed Simonturning into a french chipmunk after being bitten by a venomous spideron the island. His character Simone was hilarious! And I also enjoyedAlvin fighting a weasel over a piece of food.Bad things about the story would have to be the character Zoe. Sheadded absolutely no entertainment whatsoever and her demeanor startswith being nice to being mean and corrupt back to nice again at the endof the film which had me thinking that the writers couldn't come upwith an entertaining plot. Also Ian is back but instead of being meanand selfish like he was in the first two he changes after he and Davidget lost on the island where the chipmunks are deserted as well. Thisis not the Ian I remember. I think the people who wrote thisinstallment of the film were just looking for a quick buck.If your a fan of the series I suggest skipping this one altogether andsticking with the first two. We can only hope that if they continue onwith the series that the story line will get better again.

Alvin and the Chipmunks : Chipwrecked (1:27, G) Â other: talkinganimals, 3rd string, sequelAauuugggghhhh! Ack! Gack! Bork bork bork. Bllegegegghhhh! Ptui ptuiptui.My brain, my brain! Make it stop. Make it go away. I'll never be ableto unsee this. Oh, god, the nightmares for years to come.ALLLVVIIINNNNN! No, no, no, no, no, no. It was never funny. It wasnever endearing. It was never cute. It was just awful and horrible andbeaten to death over and over and yet it keeps coming back like avampire with 98 stakes in its heart.I think my ears are bleeding.My mind is going, Dave. I can feel it. I can feel it.The horror. The horror.BONUS: The main excrescence is preceded by a Blue Sky short animatedfeature with Scrat, the acorn-crazed squirrel from the Ice Age films.It was abrupt and pointless and about 100 times more admission-worthythan the title printed on the ticket.
raisleygordon 01 May 2013
I enjoyed the first two movies, and I sort of enjoyed this one. Onething about these movies, especially this one, is that the chipmunksare too damn cute! At least the voices are, anyway. I didn't enjoy thescenes on the island as much as the cruise ship scenes. Maybe the wholemovie should have just taken place on the ship. David Cross is supposedto be the villain again, as he was before, but him becoming nice - Ididn't buy it, not a lot, anyway. It's one thing if a villain pretendsto be nice, but to actually become nice is a fatal mistake. I wouldhave preferred more humans, less chipmunks. The third time isn't quitethe charm.**1/2 out of ****

Both of my children were anxious for this movie to come out as theyenjoyed the first two titles. I will warn that this would havequalified as a musical, there is so much singing. They didn't even wantto finish watching the movie, the singing, ALL the time; they hated it.I watch a lot of different titles with them, over and over againbecause they like them enough. This is one movie I am grateful thatthey didn't like because honestly, there is no way I could sit throughthis movie again. If you liked the singing in the previous two movies and wished therewas a LOT more of it, you may like this one.It's a shame, I think this movie was enough to turn them off of anyfuture chipmunk movies if any more should come out.

To cash on the popularity of newly discovered animated movies and therising popularity of the Groundhogs is viewed as a cash cow. What a congame!!! With regards to the story, it simply fails to connect with thechildren. A simple linear story could have been identifiable with kids,but the story starts off on a wrong note. Even my son felt disenchantedwithin 30-minutes. As for me, the movie seemed to be a rehash of LionKing.Well, the secret which has been unveiled now throws quite some surpriseas it is revealed that the animation film Alvin and the Chipmunks:Chipwrecked is neither an Indian product nor has it been made incollaboration with an International animation house. Instead, PerceptPicture Company has claimed the rights of a US film that goes by thename of Alvin and the Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.Meanwhile, the buzz is that Akshay Kumit will be dancing to the latesttunes with supermodel Naomi Campbell for the shooting of a promotionalvideo for Alvin and the Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. Joiningthem will be his wife Twinkle and Bollywood starlet Lara Dutta. Theactor has already worked with a lot of Hollywood biggies like SylvesterStallone, Preston Routh and Snoop Dogg for his other movies.
