Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

Critics Consensus

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

Movie Info

"Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" brings back our favorite furry brothers, Alvin, Simon and Theodore. Because of a freak accident involving Alvin and Dave Seville, they go to live with Dave Seville's cool cousin Toby and must enroll in school just like every other kid. School presents new challenges to these rock stars, like dealing with peer pressure, school sports and of course, girls! By "girls" we mean the Chipettes who are managed by Ian Hawke, the Chipmunks greedy former manager who wants to turn them into the next big thing. At the outset, there is a rivalry between the Chipettes and The Chipmunks but in the end they realize that they make great friends and a great musical team!

Critic Reviews for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

All Critics (84) | Top Critics (27) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (67)

  • They call this the "squeakquel" and that's about all you'll want to know about a film that remorselessly pulls all the levers of the first highly successful box-office attraction.

    Jan 5, 2010 | Rating: 1/5
  • 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.

  • There are worse forms of torture.

    Dec 26, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's far from the most unpleasant kiddie flick I've sat through this year, although I would be misleading you if I promised you lots of laughs.

    Dec 24, 2009 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Being aimed at children isn't a valid excuse for a movie to be simple-minded and illogical. You know that, right?

    Dec 23, 2009 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • Whatever limited charms the first version had -- mostly David Cross' portrayal of Ian, the greedy manager who exploits the furry creatures -- have since soured.

    Just another cash grab for money. It just basically forgot to bring in new ideas during production.

    Disgusting, disgraceful,superficial. They actually made enough money to produce a sequel. Do people actually like this crap?

    This movie wasnt even fun for my kid brother. Alvin and the Chipmunks go to high school, ya thats the plot. Where do I begin, well first of all this one of the most stupidest, childish, creepiest, uinfunniest, laziest, and dumbest films in history. First of all they are so desperate for laughs they have to bring back David Cross and somehow he is one of those cliche and stupid villains in a movie that are just retarded. I mean they have Zachary Levi as the man human star, and about hes a nerd who wants the girl of his dreams, thats how stupid these writers are. I thought they were kids, why are they in high school? They copy many movie lines and that also shows how they can't create any original laughs. I mean seriously, I know its a kids film, but it was so pointless, so moronic, so not funny that I couldn't bear it any longer. Watch the movie and you'll see what im talking about.

    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.
