Review of Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel on DVD

1:26 PM

I don't know a parent in the world who has kids that HAVEN'T been exposed to the commercials advertising the new Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel movie -- especially the clips of the Chipettes singing their version of "Put a Ring on It." Long before we received a copy of this movie to review, I was promising my kids we would see it, one way or another. Here's what we thought:

First of all, it's PG. This means that while some of the rowdier humor is mild -- it's there. If you're looking for a version of the Chipmunks that you remember as a child (the original version), this isn't it. That being said, it's not exactly a bad thing. The Chipmunks enroll in school, face some of the same trials and tribulations as today's kids, and learn a little about chipmunk love along the way. (Basically, the sanitized version of the original Chipmunks series might not resonate as well with kids ages 7 and up -- you know, the ones who actually have to deal with stuff in life?) Younger kids may find some of the humor goes over their head, and that's not without purpose.

All kidding aside, this had a sweet story line, super animation, and of course, a bangin' soundtrack (more on the soundtrack in a later review.) We enjoyed the extras that came with the movie, and I think that overall, my kids found that the movie lived up to their very high expectations. I'd also like to add that we are a very musical family -- this movie tied right into something that is very near and dear to our hearts!

If you want to hang out with kids in a way that they will enjoy as much as you, this movie makes a great Family Movie Night feature. The giggles from my kids were so worth any sassy chipmunk humor, and I think that they took away the real lesson from the movie -- that families can come together when things get tough (no matter if those families have tails and squeaky voices, or not.)

You can pre-order this film from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment via Amazon (aff) or your choice of retailer -- but it won't be out until March 30th!
