The cinematic equivalent of unwrapping a fruitcake on Christmas morning.

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.

Easy resolutions pop up and there's no real drama, with flat jokes, overacting and wasted comic-talent voices slathered between the plot's thin slices-of-strife like cheap peanut butter.

I must be the old stinker. I think that if you're activities cause property damage, you're a vandal. It's not cute to behave irresponsibly if the result is thousands of dollars in repairs. That's just destruction.

Alvin must be the most unsympathetic lead in any kiddie franchise, and having him do squeaked-up De Niro impersonations doesn't help.
January 5, 2010
A truly terrible, utterly witless comedy.

In a crowded cinema, this is every post-pubescent's nightmare.
January 5, 2010
A kids' movie with few laughs for the older viewer.

This desperate sequel - sorry "squeakquel" - is such a blatant cash-in that the producers might as well have gone straight round to young viewers' houses and stolen their piggybanks.

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.

Like the Three Stooges, McHale's Navy, and the Brides of Funkenstein, the Chipmunks are a true pop-cultural sleeper sensation.

... silly but harmless ...

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.

Yes, it's probably a good film for children. But when films far more sophisticated and enjoyable like "Up" or "Where the Wild Things Are" come out, a film like this merely seems trivial.

Kids will love it but adults will squirm. A little squeak from the chipmunks goes a long way.
December 28, 2009
The bottom line is that if you're under the age of 10 or you somehow enjoyed the god-awful 2007 original then you are more likely than not to enjoy this one, too.
