Pack your bags! We’re going on a Road Chip!

Arguably the BEST Chipmunk movie out of the four. This one has a better villain than David Cross, who played a crazed, music manager who blew it with the Chipmunks and the Chipettes and all he cared about was the money. But this time, we have a villain who has a hilarious backstory: he hates the Chipmunks because they caused his break up with his girl because he was so into them at the time. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip gets a Full Price.
