I don’t know which is more painful: having to fish two of this things from the bottom of a swimming pool, or knowing that this high-pitched novelty from your parent’s era is now a trilogy.
Just went we thought the fear of Somalian pirates and painful diarrhea was enough reason to stay away from cruise ships, Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked introduces us to a new fear: CG rodents. As the title so “punfully” suggests, their time on the cruise isn’t going to last long, as they end up lost on an island.
While some studios would chomp at the bit with a setup like that to reference a little recently ended show about people lost on an island, the ‘Chipmunks’ will have none of that. Instead, we get a reference to a James Cameron movie. No, not that one.
Alvin and the Chipmunks 3 comes to theaters on December 16th, so mark you calendars (for the next Mission Impossible or Sherlock Holmes movie, which both come out that day).
