On April 2nd, Alvin, Simon and Theodore return to DVD in a brand new, un-fur-gettable family film. The fun begins as the Chipmunks and the Chipettes go on vacation with Dave on a luxury cruiseliner. The all singing , all dancing chipmunks are back to their best, getting up to mischief and having fun from the offset!
We are lucky enough to have had a sneaky peek at the film and we enjoyed it! It is real family fun, which is exactly what you need to entertain the kids, especially with the Easter holidays fast approaching. The kids were singing along to the songs and laughing at the antics of the chipmunks throughout. They were delighted to see the return of the rather mean Ian, down on his luck and intent on getting revenge!
Alvin and the gang find themselves having a bigger adventure than they anticipated when they wind up marooned on an island after one of Alvin's pranks goes wrong. Queue the infighting, the acapella renditions of "Survivor", journeys of self-discovery and shipwreck gags! They soon realise that they are not alone on this tropical island!! Some escapades including an erupting volcano, a personality altering spider bite and some hidden treasure add to the excitement. Will Dave be able to save the day?? Will they get off the island with friendships intact and still be able to perform at the International Music Awards?
If you can put up with the squeaky, rodent voices and predictable humour, then you will be able to enjoy this latest offering from the Chipmunk franchise. It is energetic, a bit silly and full on with its slapstick humour and funky covers. For me, the novelty of singing Chipmunks is still enough to keep me entertained...I can't help it . The rendition of "I Whip My Tail Back and Forth" sold it for me!
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked is available on DVD and Blu-ray Triple Play 2 April. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
