They are cute, cuddly, and now there's SIX of them! Get ready to spend some time with the chipmunks and chipettes in this kid friendly sequel. Alvin, Simon and Theodore are still rocking out to some of the greatest music ever created, and the chipettes add a more modern flair to the film as they sing contemporary hits. Did we ever think we would see chipmunks singing 'Single Ladies' by Beyonce? It is quite hilarious since they throw in the dance moves along with it. This movie is not about the musical performances alone, as they are very secondary to the plot. Alvin, Simon and Theodore are doing something they never imagined...going to school! The horror! They must make friends, adapt to their surroundings, and learn to deal with being bullied along the way. Then there is the matter of chipmunk lust/love to handle also. Leave it to three female chipettes to shake things up for the boys. Oh my, what a lot for three little chipmunks to take on in only 90 minutes. They do it smashingly and give the kids in the audience lots to smile and laugh about consistently. As an adult, do not be surprised if you are laughing too, especially at Theodore. He is so sweet and adorable you just wish you could grab him off the screen and take him home. Ah, Theodore.
