Simon J. Smith,
After a concert mishap lands Dave in the hospital, Alvin, Simon, and Theodore end up in the care of Dave's twenty-something cousin Toby. When the Chipmunks put aside their stardom to return to school to win a annual "Battle of the Bands" competition to save the school's music program. But the boys meet their match with the Chipettes, Brittany, Jeanette, & Eleanor, who are working for the Chipmunks's ex-manager Ian Hawke. Romantic sparks and crazy mishaps happen when the Chipmunks and Chipettes square off.
Ross Bagdasarian named the Chipmunks after executives at Liberty Records, who released Seville's and the Chipmunks' original albums. Alvin was named for company president Alvin Bennett, Simon for company vice-president/record producer Si Waronker, and Theodore for recording engineer Ted Keep. See more »
(at around 58 mins) At the sing-off, when the Chipettes are singing, Ian uses his phone to make a video. He says "If you like what you see, call Ian Hawke...." however, when the video is seen on a website by some record executives, Ian says "If you're interested..." See more »
This movie just fails on so many levels. It is terrible, I couldn't even sit through it. Don't watch it, ever, don't even show it to your kids, because they might like it at the time, but they'll get brain damage or something. So just don't check it out, definitely not, if you have to pay for it.
Okay, let's start with the title. Squeakquel? Really? What the hell is that? Squeaking sequel? Did the producers think this was a funny and clever title? Let me tell you something: IT'S NOT! Moving on. The jokes. They're not funny. A poor old lady in a wheelchair falling down the stairs? Come on! Who wrote this crap? Stephen Hawking? (You see, that's an example of a bad, tasteless, offensive joke. The movie is full of them.)
One big problem in the film is, that the supporting characters tend to forget that the Chipmunks are, well damn chipmunks and not kids! Squirrels (even if they talk) are allowed to go to school? They need someone to babysit them? They're rock stars for god's sake? Gosh Another thing that caught my attention: when those kids put the squirrels into the toilet, isn't that animal cruelty? Shouldn't they go to prison for that or something?
All in all, this film is really stupid, badly written and annoying. The studio must be thinking that kids are stupid and all kinds of crap is good for them. Sorry if I cursed a lot, but this movie offended me by how bad it was. It's not the case where something is so bad it's good, it's just very bad.
I wouldn't recommend it to anybody. Maybe those who're blind and their hearing is impaired (ba-damm-tss).
