TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: This Squeakquel may entertain the kiddies, but it's low on energy and heavily reliant on slapstick humor.

Critic Reviews for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

All Critics (84) | Top Critics (24)

Blending CGI and live action, this "squeakquel" to the witless 2007 kids' film proves just how dangerous such technology is when placed in the wrong hands.

Were they always this boring?

Throwaway fun at some points of the film, but on the whole it's simply very frustrating.

I never thought the day would come where I'd wish I were watching Scooby-Doo rather than what's actually onscreen.

Kids may enjoy [it]. But kids also would enjoy an all-candy dinner -- which is why grown-ups have to step in and help them make better entertainment choices.

There is not much to like about "the Squeakquel", other than the fact that your favourite chipmunks are back for another round. The idea is stale, but I had so much fun with the first one that I had to give a little credit to this very weak, but fun film. Alvin and the Chipmunks are actually overshadowed for a while by the new chipettes, which kind of dulls the film at points, but when they are on screen it's still a cute kids film. Still, I have to give it what I think it deserves overall, and the first one was much better, so this film falls directly in the middle of bad and good. There were portions that I enjoyed and was able to have some fun with, but others that just dragged on and made me hate it. This sequel was not worth making, but it's harmless!

The squeakquel to the boring crapfest that was the first Alvin and the Chipmunks is a major improvement. I can see believable brotherly love and chemistry in this film, in contrast to hyperactive, incredibly annoying and overall, plain bad role models in the first one. Better storyline and acting that can help parents get through the whole thing and hey, I think just maybe they'll like this one.
