Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 **Movie Review**

Movie Synopsis:

Picking up from where they left off, Alvin (voice of Justin Long), Simon (voice of Matthew Gray Gubler), and Theodor (voice of Jesse McCartney) are living it large and basking in their new found fame along with their manager and adoptive father Dave (Jason Lee).

A freak accident leaves Dave stuck in the hospital in France, entrusting the chipmunks care to their Aunt Jackie (Kathryn Joosten)-Unfortunately, another freak accident incapacitates Aunt Jackie and the boys are left with their totally scatterbrained, video game addicted cousin, Toby (Zachary Levi).

Back home and under the supervision (kind of) of a new person, the boys have a lot of down-time...Too bad Dave is making them go to public school! Alvin, Simon, and Theodore start on their new public school adventure and encounter many different things they've never had to deal with: teachers, bullies, football, and girls ;)

More importantly, the Chipettes, female singing chipmunks under the influence of their old manager, Ian (David Cross). Too bad these ladies don't realize just how manipulative and rotten Ian really is. Trusting him with their future, the Chipettes don't know what's about to hit them.

Having been around the Ian-block once, will the Chipmunks be able to help the girls out of Ian's greedy grasp?

My Thoughts:

To be completely honest, I could only get halfway through the first Chipmunk movie before I got bored and just switched it off, so I came into this one kind of expecting the same happening.

To my surprise, I was entertained throughout the whole movie-Of course it dragged a bit in spots, but I thought it was an overall cute movie!

This is definitely a movie that you can watch with 'the family' on a family movie night, so if you have young children between the ages of 2 to maybe 13 or 14, it's a great movie to add to your collection :)

I do have to express my complete and utter shock at the voices behind the chipmunks and the chipettes! Seriously, I would never have guessed these people would be behind these furry-little singing animals. LOL

I love this movie because it has Zachary Levi in it, and well, he's easy on the eyes. :)

Mason loves this movie because it has chipmunks in it!
