Directed by Mike Mitchell (Sponge Bob Square Pants, Shrek Forever After), this sequel is so bad that it makes the first installment look like a masterpiece. The makers traded in a good plot for more squeaky songs that makes you wonder why God never gave us the ability to shut your ears.

Now not to sound like a Chipmunk hater, the songs weren’t half bad the movie itself was, making you hate the delay tactics of a song when something should actually be happening.

The movie comes with a lesson in it, saying parents should learn to trust their kids sometimes. The problem is the movie was targeted at 6 year olds (as that will be the only excuse for such a lame script), so if a matured mind can stay up or stay interested that long to get the message, he deserves an award.

Like the name implies our trio Alvin, Simon and Theodore, who were joined in “The Sequekquel” by Brittany, Jeanette and Eleanor, get shipwrecked on an island (and one stupid helicopter rescues them in the end, who sent them… ?) as a result of Alvin not listening to Dave (Jason Lee) as usual. In the process of Dave trying to save them he too gets shipwrecked with the antagonist of both the first and second installment Ian Hawke (David Cross) who is also the antagonist of this.

Dave and Ian were marooned on one side of the island looking for Alvin and the boys and the girls. Alvin and his crew were on another side with a woman named Zoe (Jenny Slate) who has been on the Island for 9 years, and has lost it mentally.

Basically that’s all folks, because what we are left to watch are not well put together scenes, as we keep switching between Dave and Ian to Alvin and the rest, the rate of this switch, will make wish "they will find each other already".

This movie is a definite mistake but hope is that a fourth installment will not be drawn up, because i have had enough of the squeaking.

Can I say the director is to be blamed for this?

NO!

Let’s put the blame where it should really go, the studios who just won’t quit while they are ahead.

Studios have a knack for milking a franchise till it becomes useless. A trend I hope will die one day. This 3rd Alvin installment is not a must see in any aspect.
