The chipmunks continue to entertain.
19 January 2016 | by Anurag-ShettySee all my reviews

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip continues with the story of the three chipmunks, Alvin(Justin Long), Simon(Matthew Gray Gubler) & Theodore(Jesse McCartney). The chipmunks throw Dave(Jason Lee) an unwanted party, that spirals out of control. Dave is very disappointed with the chipmunks, who he considers to be his own children. Dave tells the chipmunks that they need to start being more responsible because things are going to change since, Dave is getting really serious with his girlfriend. The chipmunks believe that Dave is going to propose to his girlfriend Samantha(Kimberly Williams-Paisley), in Miami. They meet Samantha's son, Miles(Josh Green) & realize that he's going to be a horrible stepbrother. Now, Alvin, Simon & Theodore with the help of Miles, decide to stop Dave from proposing to Samantha.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip is a good film. It is as entertaining as the previous installments in the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise. However, the chipmunks are not loved by everybody. Give this one a miss, if you find the chipmunks' squeaky voices & squeaky renditions of famous songs, annoying. Kids will thoroughly enjoy this movie. The special effects are great. The chipmunks & the Chipettes look very realistic. Jason Lee is superb as Dave. Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler & Jesse McCartney are adorable & hilarious as the voices of Alvin, Simon & Theodore, respectively. Kimberly Williams-Paisley is impressive as Samantha. Josh Green is awesome as Miles. The standout performer of the film is Tony Hale as Agent Suggs. Hale's antics as the bumbling air marshal are laugh-out-loud funny. Bella Thorne & Eddie Steeples are effective as Ashley Gray & Barry, respectively. Christina Applegate, Kaley Cuoco & Anna Faris are cute as the voices of Brittany, Eleanor & Jeanette, respectively. The soundtrack of the film is groovy, with the chipmunks' rendition of Uptown Funk & their performance in the climax of the film, being especially memorable. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip is not a must watch. However, it is the perfect movie to watch with the entire family. You guys will love the movie if you are a fan of the chipmunks.
