First a warning: Unless you have children under the age of 10, there is no need to see this movie.
Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 reunites the furry and high pitched trio, Alvin, Simon and Theodore. While on tour in Paris, their handler Dave Seville (Jason Lee) becomes unwittingly injured and has to send the rodents back home under the care of his dumbwitted nephew Toby ( Zachari Levi.)
The are sent to school, where they are asked to compete in a battle of the bands competition, but end up competing against a rival female chipmunk trio: The Chipettes.
Filled with silly sight gags, a variety of pop-turned-Chipmunk tunes, and some mild peril this movie can only be tolerable through the eyes of a child.
The chipmunks are boisterous, and extremely predictable. The live actors phoned in every second of the film. I wonder why they even bothered looking in the direction of the computer-animated chipmunks, who were digitally added in long after the human actors cashed their checks and ran.
In summary, if your kids like grown men being hit in the groin by toy motorcycles, or flatulent men trapping furry animals under the covers, by all means waste your hard earned money on this one.
If not, wait for the rental. Put it in the DVD player, sit the kids down in front of the TV and GET OUT OF THE ROOM!
