Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (Movie Review)



First of all, I am so so so sorry for not posting for two and a half weeks.  School’s started, I’ve started working, I’ve been busy.  I’m sorry =|

Secondly, I haven’t written a movie review, ever, so here you go!  I saw this two weeks ago, or something.


Movie Review; Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

In short: High-pitched rodents – wasn’t one enough?

I’m not too sure why they went and made a sequel, or “squeakquel” for Alvin and the Chipmunks.  The first movie was surprisingly good.  I personally don’t think a sequel was needed.

This half-animated half-…not animated [yes, I’m using very basic terms…as I don’t know official ones haha] movie is, for those who have been living under a rock, about three chipmunks setting out on their singing career.  Alvin, the cocky leader is more cocky than ever before.  Add Simon, the brainy brother, and Theodore, the mega adorable youngest sibling and you know these three are going to cause trouble.

In the last movie, the Chipmunks overthrew their evil manager.  Since then, he’s been looking for revenge.  All of a sudden, a money magnet rolls into his life – literally.  The Chipettes.  These girl chipmunks can sing too, but the devious manager destroys their dreams of meeting the Chipmunks, who are apparently “evil”.  Concurrently, Dave, The Chipmunks’ owner, gets injured and is stuck in hospital, leaving the Chipmunks with the irresponsible Toby.

Through a totally undramatic turn of events, the Chipmunks battle it out against the Chipettes in a singing competition.  The two groups learn the importance of friendship and family, after the Chipmunks are torn apart by Simon’s and Alvin’s constant quarelling, leaving poor Theodore sad and alone.

Apart from Theodore’s brilliance (“Aunt Jackie [old lady who hurt herself in a fall] is pole dancing!”) the movie is nothing more than a squeak.

Score: 4.5/10


I have a lot of updates to do on the site, so here’s a checklist:

[ ] update games page with buttons and new games

[ ] revamp reviews page

[ ] reveal new “secret” page

[ ] unveil new home page

[ ] write numerous reviews: two book reviews, two music reviews, two game reviews

Hopefully I’ll have another post soon =D

  1. What a boring movie, I think…

  2. Yes, actually Fylliper does ring a bell! Ah, the CP days, bahaha. And Pokemon is just something you have when you grow up. If you grow up with it, you love it for the rest of your life. xD

    And thanks! I do like photography. I might minor in it or something. 😛

  3. I think those squirrels are annyoing… :@

  4. Theodore is my favorite. You just wanna squish him.

    The sequeal wasn’t good; first one was enjoyable tho (:

  5. I hate those movies. Ok, so I’ve never seen them, but I’ve heard the soundtrack snippets in the itunes store and I nearly bashed up my ipod touch. But I didn’t because it is my baby. Nonetheless, this movie is so annoying! Their voices, ahh! They’re just so annoyingly squeaky! DIE DIE DIE.
    Ok, rant over.

    So how is work going?!? Have you been scalded by the deep friers yet, or are you still working on the registers. Basically half the people in my year have worked at Maccas at some point or another and I think they’re all literally scarred from it, so stay away from the hot appliances if you can!!

    School, I know what you mean. Now that I’m in year 12 all I hear is homework homework, study study. I want to tell those teachers where they can shove their study, but I have a feeling that’s not going to get me any bonus points…

    Anywho. Hope you’re having a less homework-y weekend than me! 🙂

  6. By the way, nice theme/header. Green is my awesomest favourite colour. ❤

  7. Hey Squishy, what subjects are you doing?

  8. Um, English Advanced, General Maths, Ancient History, French Beginners, Information Technology Multimedia and Extension History.
    What yea are you in Phi? And what subjects do you do?

  9. Oh, that must suck, all that homework. Oh well, one more year and it will all pay off, Squishy!
    I’m in Year 10 and I still don’t know how VCE works lol.

  10. VCE? Is that like, your final exam? Ours is called the HSC – High School Certificate.
    Yeah, one more year. Well, less actually, since I pretty much finish I term 3. Wow, that’s majorly scary. I’m going to be old, and I’ll have to get a job, well, another job, and go to Uni or something. I don’t even want to think about it. It’s not happening. It’s not happening….
