My Thoughts:
Before flying off to the International Music Awards, the Chipmunks and Chipettes are off on a family vacation - a cruise in the tropics. Alvin behaves as any chipmunk-kid would, but it almost gets them kicked off the ship. When he is doing the one thing allowed - shuffleboard - he gets bored. When he sees a kite flying high in the sky, he comes up with a scheme to use it to go hang-gliding. The winds become too strong, and Alvin and his team helping to keep him from letting the wind take over, fly into the air, pulling the chair the string is tied to, and Dave, their manager/father, with them. They fly into the sky, and Dave goes to the real glider  in hopes of going after them. Ian, the chipmunks and chipettes old manager, tries to stop him, and they end up dropping the flotation and plummeting into the water, far behind the disappearing cruise. The chipmunks all make it to an island, and using Ian's bird costume as a floaty, Dave and Ian soon arrive at the island as well.

When Simon gets bit by a spider, he becomes Simone and takes the fun, careless-ness of Alvin and makes it his own, upsetting Alvin. Simone shows his affection towards Jeanette majorly, and Brittany becomes sad that she is no longer the pretty one. 
Finally, they have found each other - Dave and the 'munks.  But when the volcano on the island starts to erupt and the greedy island-goer, Zoe, has captured Jeanette in hopes of uncovering the hidden gold, will Alvin and the gang make it out on time? You simply must watch the movie to find out!
It was a cute movie with a good plot line and cool songs. The chipmunk voices were less annoying than I thought they were going to be. A whole movie of hearing those high, squeaky voices? Not as bad as it sounds. I usually don't like movies, but this one I enjoyed. I definitely suggest people go to see it.

  2. Where do people get the idea that I only review movies? or only review books?
