Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Road Chip, which opened at theatres on December 18th, 2015, is a lively comedy for the entire family.
If you’ve seen other Alvin & the Chipmunks movies, you will notice a familiar theme. There is comedy, action and some sad emotions. The chipmunks Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler), and Theodore (Jesse McCartney) have good intentions yet always seem to be getting into mischief. Their mischief is creative and funny to watch. Alvin is always starting trouble, Simon is very smart and warning everyone about danger, and Theodore just watches and eats a lot.
The core storyline is about Alvin, Simon, and Theodore trying to get to Miami to make sure Dave (Jason Lee) does not propose to his girlfriend. The girlfriend has a son that they don’t like because he is mean to them and they do not want him to become their brother. They are also worried that Dave might not keep them if he gets married. There is a crazy twist at the end but I won’t spoil it for you.
There are a lot of intriguing and interesting scenes including escaping an air marshal, throwing a huge party, releasing wild animals on a plane, starting a bar fight, getting ditched in the middle of nowhere and causing lots of raucous on the streets of New Orleans. As you can see, the chipmunks travel quite a bit in this movie. Despite not being an official musical, there is a lot of singing because they are musical sensations. The songs were fun and added a lot to the enjoyment of the movie.
This movie is rated G for all audiences. I really enjoyed this movie and highly recommend it. This movie was written by Adam Sztkiel, based on the characters Alvin and Chipmunks created by Ross Bagdasarian and was directed by Walt Becker.
