Overview

Alvin, Simon, and Theodore meet their musical match after returning to school and entering into a battle of the bands competition in hopes of saving the school's troubled music program. Sent to live with Dave Seville's younger nephew Toby Zachary Levi, the three lovable marmots decide that getting an education is more important than belting out pop tunes. But the school's music program is about to go belly up, and the only way to save it is to win the 25,000-dollar prize in the upcoming battle of the bands. Though the Chipmunks are confident they have the songwriting skills to steamroll the competition, a newly formed singing trio dubbed the Chippettes promises to give them some stiff competition on-stage. Brittany, Eleanor, and Jeanette are indeed the real deal, and the closer the competition gets, the more Alvin, Simon, and Theodore realize that in order to win, they'll have to give it everything they've got.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Nowadays, revamping a classic cartoon is as conventional as it is predictable -- making a sequel even more so -- and with Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, there's no lack of the high-pitched raucousness that riddled its predecessor. After a freak accident hospitalizes Dave Seville Jason Lee, the pop sensations Alvin Justin Long, Simon Matthew Gray Gubler, and Theodore Jesse McCartney find themselves in the care of Dave's nephew, Toby Zachary Levi, a layabout gamer with no discernible aspirations. In an attempt to obtain a normal life, the Chipmunks return to the hallowed halls of high school, where they battle jocks, try to fit in, and attempt to balance a home life with a social life. Naturally, this leads to strained relationships, dramatic crises -- well, as dramatic as a lightweight kid flick about singing critters can get -- and, inevitably, the learning of important life lessons. Director Betty Thomas keeps the action zipping along with plenty of wacky high school hijinks, but suspension of disbelief is necessary to tolerate some of the plot points. The meat of the story is pretty simple -- it has to be to capture the attention of a younger audience. The Chipmunks are tasked with saving the school's music program by winning the 25,000-dollar prize in the battle of the bands competition known as Music Mania. This time around the new element is, of course, the introduction of the Chipettes -- Brittany Christina Applegate, Eleanor Amy Poehler, and Jeanette Anna Faris, up-and-coming starlets who channel Beyoncé in their performances. The girls are taken in by Ian Hawke David Cross, former Chipmunks manager and all-around bad guy, who promises to make them famous and pits them against the Chipmunks in the battle of the bands competition. The computer animation keeps the film interesting, from the detail of the Chipmunks' and Chipettes' facial expressions to their movements, which add a certain amount of realism to the characters. The pint-sized trio are admittedly adorable, which serves as a much-needed reprieve between bouts of inept narrative and dated pop-culture one-liners like, "I'm the king of the world" and "It's on like Donkey Kong," but the "aww" moments grow old quickly and the film drags on, leaving the audience to wonder when it's going to be over. At the end of the day, this movie is really for the kids who saw the first movie, enjoyed it, and want to experience the next chapter in the Chipmunk adventure.

    Furry Fantasy.

    *Great DVD for family night. *Funny storyline, and a fantastic follow-up DVD to the first chipmunk adventure. *The chipmunks have their work cut out for them trying to survive as the "super stars" that they are. Get your movie snacks and be prepared for some chipmunk hi-jinks and some sometimes inappropriate language and behavior. Alvin and the Chipmunks: the Squeakquel was entertaining and engaging.

    cute and surprisingly funny

    I went to see this movie with a younger audience but ended up laughing and enjoying it much more than I thought. I thought that the story was sweet, and that the characters carried over nicely from the first film. I also thought that it was very appropriate for the younger audience but provided some humor for the older audience as well.
