Everyone’s favorite chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Theodore, and their female companions, The Chipettes, have the time of their lives during a family vacation they’ll never forget in ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED, debuting on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on March 27 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The hilarious live-action comedy will also be available as an exciting “Island Adventure” edition on Blu-ray and 2-Disc DVD, filled with tons of fun for the whole family to enjoy just in time for Easter.

The Chipmunks, Chipettes and their caretaker Dave Sevelle (Jason Lee; “My Name is Earl”) embark on a trip of a lifetime aboard the Carnival Dream cruise ship. Seeking fun and excitement, the Chipmunks turn the luxury cruise liner into their own personal playground. But the ultimate vacation quickly becomes a disaster when the Chipmunks, Dave and Carnival cruise pelican mascot, who turns out to be the chipmunks’ old manager, Ian Hawke (David Cross; Megamind), accidentally fall overboard and find themselves ‘Chipwrecked’ on a remote island. Stuck in an unfamiliar territory, the six furry castaways are separated from Dave and must figure out a way to survive on their own for the first time in their lives.

Written and produced by husband and wife duo Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. and Janice Karman, ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED features a star-studded voice cast with Justin Long (Dodgeball) as Alvin, Mathew Gray Gubler (“Criminal Minds”) as Simon, Jesse McCartney (Horton Hears a Who!) as Theodore, Christina Applegate (“Up All Night) as Brittany, Anna Faris (What’s Your Number?) as Jeanette, and Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”) as Eleanor.

My Review/Thoughts:

We have watched the other two movies and were not sure if this one would be as fun as the others.  Movies can sometimes lose their "oomph" by the third installment.  But this latest Chipmunk movie did not disappoint my family.  Although some of the plot line had unbelievable aspects, it was still entertaining.   It reminded me a bit of the reruns I used to watch of Gilligan's Island with its humor.  

We chuckled quite often throughout the movie at some of the pop references.  And the songs chosen for the Chipmunks to sing were perfectly placed within the story line.  (We especially liked "I'm a Survivor" from Destiny's Child.)    I don't want to spoil the plot for you, but the role reversals of the Chipmunks (and the Chipettes) showed some strong character traits and teaches some great lessons.   This is a film you can see with your little ones without having to be concerned about language or too much adult humor.
