"Your kids may keep laughing through this and the next few "squeakquels." Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Perhaps not since The Godfather: Part II have we seen a sequel come along that more than matches the mastery of the film that came before it... Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"...excellent animation... Charles Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Editor's NoteAlvin, Simon, and Theodore meet their musical match after returning to school and entering into a battle of the bands competition in hopes of saving the school's troubled music program. Sent to live with Dave Seville's younger nephew Toby (Zachary Levi), the three lovable marmots decide that getting an education is more important than belting out pop tunes. But the school's music program is about to go belly up, and the only way to save it is to win the 25,000-dollar prize in the upcoming battle of the bands. Though the Chipmunks are confident they have the songwriting skills to steamroll the competition, a newly formed singing trio dubbed the Chippettes promises to give them some stiff competition on-stage. Brittany, Eleanor, and Jeanette are indeed the real deal, and the closer the competition gets, the more Alvin, Simon, and Theodore realize that in order to win, they'll have to give it everything they've got.

Alvin and the Chipmunks joined their ranks a while ago (though to be fair the '80s come back was the original revitalization from the '50s concept) and I dare say that despite being critically panned, the first film induced feelings of nostalgia within me. Growing up I used to watch the show religiously and to this day the Chipmunks Christmas song is standard fair in my household. Just a few months ago a sequel was released and later this month it will arrive on DVD. Is it worth checking out for a sense of nostalgia?...read the full review|
