Update for this new Chipmunk Movie! Alvin and The Chipmunks has a new name and its called ‘: Chip-Wrecked ‘. This is, you guessed it, a third film in the half live action, half CGI series, but this time, it’s in 3D!
The sequel to a Squeakquel?
All together now, these half live action, half CGI film are hard on my eyes, somewhat corny, but I guess thats what I expect when I walk into a movie based around talking Chipmunks? Right?
The new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie appears to be based on the premise that they are stranded, hence the name ‘Chip-Wrecked’ in the title. I do know the studio wants to milk this sucker for all it’s worth, so it’ll be in 3D.
Alvin and the Chipmunks are on a cruise vacation where the boys and the Chipettes are wreaking havoc. They become ‘chipwrecked’ on a deserted island, and Dave searches for his friends while the lost Chipmunks get crazy on their new location.
The crew makes a new friend on the Cruise Liner, who proves to be more than a handful for everyone.
Movie Release Date
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked hits theaters December 16, 2011.

What’s Good About It?
Well, my kids loved the movies so far, so I guess once we just accept the target audience, the Chipmunks are ok with me.
What’s Bad About It?
There are two sides to the bad on this film. Side one: half live action. Side two: half CGI. Some like it, some hate it, you know where I stand.
I lied. There’s a third. Side Three: 3D.
Our Clever Prediction
The first made $358 Million worldwide, and the second made $442 million worldwide. Holy crap. The third may actually make over $500 million with the additional price of 3D.
