The Chipmunks Are Back!

As an Alvin and the Chipmunks fan, I’d say that Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is a movie that is part of a franchise that could have done better than what was set out to be but nonetheless, it’s a fun film and fun franchise. I’d give this movie a Rental.

I thought that this movie was hilarious, one of the funniest I've seen in fact. The one thing that bothered me though is that aren't they monkeys? Why is it called alvin and the chipmunks when they're all monkeys? Anyways cool movie.
