'Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel'
(Jason Lee, Justin Long, Jesse McCartney, Zachary Levi, et al / 2-Disc DVD / PG / 2010 / 20th Century Fox)
Overview: Chipmunk singing sensations Alvin, Simon and Theodore are back for an encore in this hilarious "squeakquel" packed with more action and more nutty fun for the whole family!
DVD: This movie is about teamwork and working together. It also teaches you that the good guys always win, and that evil gets you nowhere in life. Alvin, Simon, and Theodore (the Chipmunks), start school, but they don't start pre-k or 1st grade. They start high school. To these furry little animals, getting though an eight hour day is a fight for survival.
That's not the only story in this movie. At the same time, three new chipmunks find their way to Hollywood. Brittney, Eleanor, and Janet call themselves the Chipettes, and they want a career in the music business like the Chipmunks. Unfortunately, they wind up working for the Chipmunks mean, selfish ex-producer, Ian Hawke. These two groups are set against each other by Ian, but, in the end, the Chipmunks and the Chipettes team up together against him.
Like I said, the good guys ALWAYS win!
This movie was very good with its special effects. The fact that the people who work on the movie can make six talking chipmunks look real is pretty amazing. All the scenes in the movie had everyone in the theater gasping, as if it was all 100% real. I didn't even think for one minute that anything in that movie was on a green screened or faked! therefore, and for all the right reasons. 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel' is good clean fun for everyone in the family! [AK] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
