My boys are just IN LOVE with Alvin and the Chipmunks, so when ChipWrecked came out I was thrilled! Not only did I know how excited my kids would be to watch it but I knew it would be a great family-friendly and clean movie to watch! We watched it last Friday night for our special family movie night. As an adult I LOVED it – it was VERY enjoyable to watch. Funny, cute, and a fantastic story line. I don’t have to tell you how much my boys liked it!
Below you can read the synopsis from the press release:
“The Chipmunks, Chipettes and their caretaker Dave Seville (Jason Lee; “My Name is Earl”) embark on a trip of a lifetime aboard the Carnival Dream cruise ship. Seeking fun and excitement, the Chipmunks turn the luxury cruise liner into their own personal playground. But the ultimate vacation quickly becomes a disaster when the Chipmunks, Dave and Carnival cruise pelican mascot, who turns out to be the chipmunks’ old manager, Ian Hawke (David Cross; Megamind), accidentally fall overboard and find themselves ‘chipwrecked’ on a remote island. Stuck in an unfamiliar territory, the six furry castaways are separated from Dave and must figure out a way to survive on their own for the first time in their lives.”
It’s been a while since I’ve watched any of the Alvin & the Chipmunks episodes but I loved this movie. It really kept you guessing as to what was coming next and really made me fall in love with the characters! It was a perfect and light-hearted family movie night. And of course I found myself reminiscing and wishing that I myself was on a cruise ship on a far-off vacation somewhere!! They added in some pretty hilarious movie comparisons that kids won’t get but will love anyway. My boys are (almost) 5 & 2 years old and I had no problems letting them watch this. It’s safe for kids of all ages to enjoy. It’s certainly one of those movies I won’t mind watching over & over again with my kids!
