Three times the charmlessness, Chipwrecked washes up more tired castaway jokes than the umpteenth rerun of Gilligan's Island. Chipmunking more potty jokes and auto, er, animal-tuned jukebox ditties than any rational animal can withstand, this Squeakquel sequel is so bad that'd make the Swiss Family Robinson swim away from their hideaway. Yes, it does teach life lessons about the importance of individuality and instilling confidence, but these messages are spoon fed...with a slingshot.
In this PG-rated family tail, the Chipmunks (voices of Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, and Jesse McCarthy) and Chipettes (Anna Faris, Amy Poehler, and Christina Applegate) must survive on a Polynesian island by themselves after their cruise ship sinks.
Even though no one could tell the difference once the voice is sped up, this second deuce needlessly shells out major clams for marquee names. Yes, this reviewer understands that the names Long, Faris, Poehler, and Applegate bring a certain sellability to the project. Everything is relegated to a high-pitch register, however, which makes the 'munk voices indistinguishable.
Bottom line: Nuts to yule.
