Just a Perfect Waste of Film: Go Home, Talking Chipmunks
You've all seen or heard of the first film, Alvin and the Chipmunks. My suggestion is that they shouldn't have even made a sequel, or in this case, a sqeakuel. Last film was fine: a group of talking chipmunks found and made famous.
When I went to watch this at a pre-screening, it was awful: my cousin was asleep, and I was just crying to get out of the theatre.
Now, the storyline is awful: those talking chipmunks go to school, and face against some other talking chipmunks in this band contest. In my opinion, I thought that was a really weak storyline.
However, this is just a perfect film for small kids. Lessons taught about being considerate to others, being kind, and those other lessons.
But as entertainment, I'd rather have watched Barney.
