In this extremely needless sequel, human chipmunk-father Dave (Jason Lee, who actually decided to show up for more than 10 minutes this time) takes the boys and the Chipettes on a cruise. Alvin (the voice of Justin Long), of course, screws things up, and everyone winds up marooned on an island. The subplots include a really bad Cast Away spoof, in which the chipmunk/ettes meet a stranded human being, Zoe (Jenny Slate). They also encounter the villain from the previous two chapters, Ian (David Cross). The movie is neither funny nor cute, with the only laugh coming early in the film, thanks to Cross. Considering the amount of talented names in the cast list (Long, Cross, Amy Poehler, Anna Faris, etc.), one would think that parts of the film would be tolerable … and one would be wrong.
