With the previous two ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’ movies, I was fortunate enough to miss those screenings. Sadly, as much I tried finding a way to avoid ‘Chipwrecked’, I just couldn’t get out of it. Here it is, folks. I took a bullet for you. Enjoy, because I sure didn’t.
Canceled television stars Jason Lee (‘My Name Is Earl’) and David Cross (‘Arrested Development’) play the two leading live-action actors who appear alongside the annoying, pop-singing Chipmunks and Chipettes. This time, they’re stranded on a lost island. There, the typical shenanigans of deserted island take place: They meet a crazy castaway, find a hidden treasure and have to escape before the island is obliterated by its active volcano.
If you haven’t noticed, the dumber a movie is, the angrier I get having to relive it while writing my review. For that reason, I’ll concentrate my hatred to few short lines. ‘Chipwrecked’ is one of the worst family movies I’ve ever seen. Nothing good comes from it. It never warrants a real laugh. Its musical remixes are even less necessary and more unbearable than those on ‘Glee’.
Kids don’t know any better, so they’re going to love it. It’s up to you parents to teach your children the difference between right and wrong – and ‘Chipwrecked’ is definitely wrong. If you fuel this crap, the studios will just keep making these “sure things” instead of trying fresh, worthy new family films. Be responsible.
If you’re wondering why I gave ‘Chipwrecked’ one star despite absolutely hating it, that’s only because the movie isn’t in 3D.
