Story: In this installment, the chipmunks - Alvin, Theodore, Simon - continue with their misadventures. As their 'Dad' Dave go on a holiday to Miami with his girlfriend Samantha, Alvin and his brothers take a journey with Samantha's son Miles to stop them from getting engaged.

Review: Road Chip, the latest installment from the Alvin and The Chipmunks series is amateurish yet adorable. It is clear that director Walt Becker hardly cares about novelty and is loyal subscriber of fluff entertainment. His sole purpose here is to make people laugh with abandon and on that count, it scores. Chipmunk movies have never been about the story but this edition is thankfully the more charming one of m the lot. Though it demands for you to sit through a lot of poop and fart jokes to get to the better part of the movie, it is all worth it when you watch them jiggle and break into gigs.

The plainness of the story is never a disadvantage. You know what to expect and when done well, that is what comfort cinema is all about. What you can really hold against it, is the fact that it is strictly for kids. Anyone who is well in their teens will find the movie downright silly.

The sequence with an Air Marshall's sappy backstory being the cause of his hatred towards the tiny fluffy things could've been done away with. The constant chase between the frantic air cop and the mischievous rodents is a hoot all through the film. Besides the staple chaos of the franchise, there's a crackling finale gag which makes for a bang-on ending.

There is very little heart to all the mad rush in the movie. You are moved when Dave adopts the chipmunks legally or when Miles starts looking at them as family and not foes. Frankly Miles' change of heart was a little out of the blue, but it fits just fine for the age group it is catering to.

Keep your expectations in check and revel in joy of the chipmunks' gibberish music.

Our gang is determined to prevent Dave from proposing to his new girlfriend Samantha (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), a heart surgeon who absentmindedly goes everywhere with a stethoscope around her neck so the kids in the audience don’t forget she’s a positive role model. Her son Miles (Josh Green) is at first mean to the three chipmunks, but they join forces on the quest to prevent the union. Miles, still reeling from the departure of his biological father, has convinced the Chipmunks that with a new marriage, Dave will just dump the three singing rodents back into the forest.

The dialogue is rife with pandering (“This is my jizzam!” one of the Chipettes cries out, before going off to host American Idol) but the meat of the set pieces is rooted in the classics. The Chipmunks’ zeal for chaos can draw a direct line back to the Marx Brothers; Alvin instinctually knows to wander into that first-class cabin to cause trouble. Their joy comes in making music and doing a silly dance to entertain the people, and while babyish versions of Turn Down For What and Baby Got Back (both of which make appearances) are difficult to listen to for more than 45 seconds, it’s a lot easier to roll your eyes and laugh than it is to get upset. Again, anything’s less annoying than Minions.
