Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Thomas brings a light campy touch as she did in 1995's The Brady Bunch Movie.
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Tuesday, December 22, 2009
Rotten: Whatever limited charms the first version had -- mostly David Cross' portrayal of Ian, the greedy manager who exploits the furry creatures -- have since soured.

Fresh: If the Chipmunks don't make you smile, you're nuts.

So, I now add this to the list of "movies I've seen a million times, because my kids watch it daily". I though I would review it, because these comprise the majority of the movies I see these days. it is just what you would expect. The characters are faithful to the cartoon from the early 80's (id, ego and superego). They are photo-realistic cartoon characters, interacting with live actors, and there are plenty of classic and contemporary pop numbers, sung at a higher than normal frequency. None of these make the movie particularly good, but hey, at least it's got Dave Cross in it (that's not the first time I've used that sentence in a review...man, he does some crappy movies).

CAST: Jason Lee, Zachary Levi, David Cross, Justin Long, Anna Faris, Amy poehler, Jesse McCartney, Christina Applegate, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kathryn Joosten DIRECTED BY: Betty Thomas SUMMARY: David Seville and chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Theodore, return in the sequel to lay waste to Seville's surroundings and sing in three-part harmony. Although plot details are being kept under wraps, the new movie will introduce the Chipmunks' female counterparts, the Chipettes. MY THOUGHTS: I really didn't care for the first, and this one, although being better still wasn't great. But I did like it better then the first. Probably having the chipettes in this one helped. But it is a kids movie. So I am sure the kids loved it much more. I know my nieces and nephew did. That's why I got the pleasure of seeing it.. :/
