THEY’RE GONNA ROCK THE BOAT!
Dave (Jason Lee) and his chipmunks are on a cruise ship (surprisingly enough, so is their arch-enemy, Ian (David Cross))… but eventually they end up as castaways on a tropical island. The third movie in the series is a slight improvement on number two due to a change of scenery that even features a volcano eruption near the end. Crazy fun for kids with lots of song numbers and chipmunk antics, but parents had better use earplugs. Cross looks relaxed even though he spends the entire movie in a pelican costume.
