Apples instead of nuts....
2 February 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an awfully familiar theme. Once again, Donald Duck is battling Chip 'n Dale and instead of the object of their war being acorns, it's apples--though why the chipmunks suddenly want apples is beyond me.

Donald has a far and is about to pick his apples when he discovers his old enemies, Chip 'n Dale in the trees...enjoying HIS apples! So he spends most of the film battling them--but in ways that seem awfully modern and a bit more contrived than their previous altercations. He uses, among other things, a helicopter like James Bonds' in "You Only Live Twice" as well as dynamite. The end of the film might just offend with its Asian joke and stereotype. It might also offend because it's basically a 1940s Donald Duck cartoon updated to include apples. Not bad--just not nearly Donald at his best.
