Our Score
Life for Alvin and his chipmunk brothers never runs smoothly, so it's no surprise when a cruise to an awards ceremony goes horribly wrong. The Chipmunks and Chipettes are stranded on an island, and to make matters worse they are separated from dad Dave (Jason Lee). Cue the usual messages about family ties and responsibilities, yet it all seems rather jaded this time around, and even the pop songs (usually a saving grace in these movies) feel tired. There are some entertaining exchanges between Lee and David Cross (returning as the music producer whose prospects they ruined in the last film), but newcomer Jenny Slate doesn't even raise a smile as the eccentric castaway who befriends them. Thank goodness for little chipmunk Theodore, who can't help but be adorably cute and cuddly.

Summary

The singing rodents cause mayhem while performing on a tropical cruise, before they find themselves stranded on a desert island. As they search for a way to get back to civilisation, it becomes clear that they are not alone. Comedy sequel, starring Jason Lee and Jenny Slate, with the voices of Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler and Jesse McCartney.
