Boys on the Hood, Alvin and the Chipmunks Road Chip - Movie Review

I'd promised Anjali 'The Young Dinosaur' and horror of horrors, the movie went off the theatres the very day we were to go. Much trauma later I convinced her to go to 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' who are a reliable bunch with their songs and dances and mischief.

So the Chippettes are going away to judge American Idol. Alvin throws a crazy party without Dave's knowledge (and rubs Dave the wrong side again). Dave introduces the chipmunks to his new love - and her bullying son - and grounds the chipmunks from going to Miami where he has to attend his new celebrity client's event. Worse he leaves them in company with his fiance's bullying son Miles. Between them and their new adversary, they figure out that having Dave marry the woman and get the bully for a brother was a bad idea and decide to scuttle the proposal plans. Plane rides, road rides, run ins with air marshals, New Orleans, performances and finally happy endings.

Anjali had a good time dancing away in her seat. I enjoyed it too.
