Fresh: A surprising array of stars play the helium voiced sextet, safe in the knowledge that noone is going to be offended by this charming chipmunk squeakquel.

Rotten: Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel offers exactly two big laughs for its kiddo target audience -- one involves passing gas, the other a shot to the crotch.

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.. :/

Alvin 2 is a remake of the first film, except Jason Lee was smart enough to make a contract fulfilment appearance. Dave gets hurt. the boys go to school. They meet girls. there's a sing off. Evil Ian (David Cross) is trying to be the white, no talent Barry Gordy. Oh, and Alvin plays football. Once again, the kids will like it. I have to wonder a few things about this film. The first is that if an area produced sic talking chipmunks I would be looking for the leaking toxic waste bins. Second, instead of competing to save the schools music program why not have the two groups become one big super group like Blind Faith or Menudo. Of course there are no answers to these burning questions. This is an empty, hallow film that just fails on all levels. It's CGI garbage, pure and simple. Made quickly to strike while the iron is hot. Nothing in this one unless you want the kids entertained for 90 minutes.
