Alvin, Simon and Theodore are taking the road trip of their lives in ‘Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Road Chip.’ Is it the family movie to see if you’re not a ‘Star Wars’ family? See what the critics are saying now!
Alvin and the Chipmunks are back for Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Road Chip, along with Bella Thorne, Jesse McCartney and more! This is the fourth movie in the Alvin & The Chipmunks series, but is it the best among the rest? Find out if you and your family should see this if you’re not the biggest Star Wars fan in the universe!
“When the first three films in a family movie franchise earn more than $1 billion worldwide, greenlighting a fourth installment is a no-brainer. Say hello, then, to the inevitable “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip,” which continues the mix of live action and CGI-animated silliness that began with 2007’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks.” It’s harmless, zippy, candy-colored fun.”
“The new movie is a bit of a corrective, with a simpler plot and an abundance of catchy (if you can stand that grating, high-pitched harmony) songs… The film delivers the standard upbeat message about family, along with one particularly outstanding and incongruous cameo that — sorry — won’t be spoiled here.”
“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip” is not a movie for kids that is embarrassed to be a movie for kids…When the movie wants to get sentimental, it has the flexibility to do so. “Road Chip” also has a nice subtle message about families: families don’t have to look a certain way. Families are not just people related by blood. A family is people who love and take care of each other.”
“There’s a likably warm and fuzzy message about families formed by chance… But that about covers it for modest highlights. Tony Hale works diligently to give his angry air marshal a kooky edge, but it was more fun when Hale’s “Arrested Development” castmate David Cross was sparring with the Chipmunks previously. And it just feels misguided, not clever, when John Waters is dragged out for a cameo.”
