Available now on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Download is Alvin & The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked
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.
Having seen this movie in theatres, my kids were thrilled when a copy came for review. We didn’t even wait until movie night, it was watched right away. It’s a funny movie with catchy music, and full of little cuddly characters. My toddlers especially, are glued to the film. The kids are fans of the other Chipmunks movies, so Chipwrecked is a great addition to the collection and a nice break from watching the others. Plus, the Chipettes are in the film the entire time as well, and I think that very well may be the clincher when it comes my girls liking it. The Chipettes are certainly their favorites!
