Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked
It’s possible that the eight-to-ten-year-old set has not been sufficiently exposed to Lady Gaga. This should fix that. It’s also possible that comedian David Cross was not yet bereft of human dignity. This should fix that, too. And in case you’d forgotten how much you loved Tom Hanks in Cast Away, here’s a tale of animated chipmunks stranded on a desert island and learning a little bit about responsibility to remind you. 2011.
