Even the Kiddies Weren’t Buying It
Today I had to sit through this movie several times. 🙁
As an adult, it wasn’t funny or entertaining. But what amused me was the reaction from the kids in the audiences. Almost none of the kids laughed out loud during the matinée viewing (the showing with the most kids in attendance).
Some take away comments from the mouth of babes: “Is it over YET?” “I’m bored” and my personal favorite “That wasn’t so funny at all.” (poor kid said it over and over again with the “big” jokes.) Plus, I had never seen so many kids ready to leave after the first 15 minutes.
It didn’t get better over the course of the evening.
Seek out the Squeakquel, do, all who desire a fun family flick
The darling chipmunks are back and continue their careers as rock singers! While performing on stage, however, Alvin accidentally causes his “dad”, David Seville (Jason Lee) to have a major accident. Soon Dave is in traction at the local hospital and has called his aunt to care for A, Simon, and Theodore. But, she, too, has a pratfall at the airport and so her grandson, Toby (Zachary Levi), ends up watching the singing rodents. Toby, however, is very young and although he tries hard, keeping up with the chipmunks is difficult. For starters, the chipmunks now attend the local high school, where the girls are gaga for them and the boys are miffed that they aren’t getting as much attention. Most importantly, the school’s music department needs money so the principal (Wendie Malick) has signed the performing chipmunks up for a “battle of the high school bands”. Meanwhile, former manager Ian (David Cross) is near-homeless and living next to the music studio where he was once employed. One day, three little GAL chipmunks (voiced by Christina Applegate, Amy Poehler, and Anna Faris) arrive especially to see him, for they can sing and they are hoping to be his new act. Ho, ho, perhaps this is the way for Ian to get back to the top of the biz. Learning about the band battle, he enrolls the female chipmunks at the same high school and insists on that they join the musical competition. What will be the result? This is another winner in the family flick category. The chipmunks are darling and, what a nice turn, we now have the Chipettes, too, those lovable female chipmunks. All of the actors voicing the cute critters do a very nice job. Lee, unfortunately, has very little screen time but Cross, Malick, and all of the others do a fine job. The story, musical numbers, and direction are all great while the wonderful animation is a huge asset, for the chipmunks really are something special to behold. One minor criticism, however, is that the high school students practice “swirlies”, that is, dunking kids and chipmunks, headfirst, into the toilet. This cruel practice could have been left out. But, all in all, do seek out the Squeakquel, it is fun, fun, and more fun.
