Set out the rodent traps for this lazy exercise in children's entertainment.

Even with a wealth of material, the movie is more groan-worthy than giggle-inducing.

Chipwrecked is a mind-numbing piece of uninspired baloney, meant only to pacify hyperactive children.

With all the digital and environmental tomfoolery, it's a shock that Chipwrecked wasn't released in 3D, and that renders it ever so slightly more respectable. But seriously, Jason Lee, you're so much better than this. Please, stop now.

There's a germ of a light, goofy kids movie somewhere in here, but it's buried under a pile of clichés.

The ship's captain, at the beginning of the film, is named Captain Corelli. This little item kept me amused for a good ten minutes.

How is 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked?' Abysmal to anyone over the age of 7. (Content Review for Parents also available)

A Sarah Palin joke? A Charlie Sheen wisecrack? Is this a Chipmunks movie or a Letterman monologue?

For kids, familiarity, silliness and Dave's unconditional love make it appealing. For adults, the best it has to offer are nostalgia and a running time under 90 minutes.

It all seems rather jaded this time around, and even the pop songs (usually a saving grace in these movies) feel tired.

Only David Cross, as arch-enemy Ian Hawke, manages to wring a few laughs from the sodden script, but for those you have to listen to such Chipmunk teen speak as "totally adorbs" for 90 minutes.

Eighty-seven minutes, the duration of this auditory assault, would be sufficient to slaughter every brain cell and induce blithering idiocy.

The film will mostly appeal to the youngest of viewers, who probably instead should be reading a book or playing in the fresh air.

Overall, Mike Mitchell's assault will appeal only to the under-10 set and send everyone else running for ear plugs.

I briefly fantasized about how it might have perked up last week's "New Year's Eve" if Zac Efron or Hilary Swank had a romance with one of the chipmunks of either gender.
| Original Score: 2/4

There's a wilful awfulness to the script that's occasionally quite appealing: in one scene, Alvin pledges to turn the Chipmunks' "punishment into fun-ishment".

You know there is something wrong with a movie when even David Cross in a giant pelican suit isn't funny.
