ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE SQUEAKQUEL (2009)
I went to see thiz movie with no expectation. I think all things that they want to show us, it has already appeared in the first movie. So thiz “Squeakquel” is only a repetition of what we have seen before. The movie is still played by Jason Lee and David Cross. The Alvin Character is voiced by Justin Long. The former Director Tim Hill who also directed “Garfield” (2004) now is replaced by Betty Thomas. It’s very obvious that the moviemaker’s intention is to refresh things up by the appearance of new characters, the Chippetes (the girl’s version of the Chipmunks). Members of the Chippetes are Brittany (Christina Applegate), Jeanette (Anna Faris), Eleanor (Amy Poehler). We certainly recognize the trio as creditable Comediennes. I think in some ways, the movie is less musical than the first one. It looks like the Chippetes performance is based on the today's hip hop style. If we look at the human characters, Zachary Levi seems to have more proportion than Jason Lee, both of them don’t make us stunned by their performances. Their roles can be replaced easily by other Actors. In the end, I have to say that thiz kind of movie is definitely just for fun.
