'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip'
(Jason Lee, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, et al / DVD / PG / 2016 / 20th Century Fox)

Overview: Through a series of misunderstandings, Alvin, Simon and Theodore come to believe that Dave is going to propose to his new girlfriend in New York City...and dump them! They have three days to get to him and stop the proposal, saving themselves not only from losing Dave but possibly from gaining a terrible stepbrother.

DVD Verdict: 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip' continues with the story of the three chipmunks, Alvin(Justin Long), Simon(Matthew Gray Gubler) and 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) and realize that he's going to be a horrible stepbrother. Now, Alvin, Simon and Theodore with the help of Miles, decide to stop Dave from proposing to Samantha.

In short, '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 and squeaky renditions of famous songs, annoying though! Kids will thoroughly enjoy this movie, that shouldn't need to be said!

The special effects are great. The chipmunks and the Chipettes look very realistic. Jason Lee is superb as Dave. Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler and Jesse McCartney are adorable and 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 and Eddie Steeples are effective as Ashley Gray and Barry, respectively. Christina Applegate, Kaley Cuoco and Anna Faris are cute as the voices of Brittany, Eleanor and Jeanette, respectively. The soundtrack of the film is groovy, with the chipmunks' rendition of "Uptown Funk" (which has to be seen to be believed!) and 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. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
