Alvin And The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked review

Singing rodents marooned on a desert island

Critical resistance is futile, as the Chipmunks (and the Chipettes) return for a third outing in the depressingly successful franchise.

This time, hijinks aboard a cruise ship lead to the singing rodents being marooned on a desert island, with manager Dave (Jason Lee) and double-crossing rival Ian (David Cross) on rescue duties.

Steel yourself for a mix of slapstick humour, high-pitched cover versions – weep at the butchering of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ – and conservative family values: at least chipmunk Simon develops a devil-may-care alter ego.
