QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated/Live Action Comedy: Three talking chipmunks believe their human father is going to dump them after proposing to his girlfriend in Miami, and thus set off for there from Los Angeles in hopes of stopping the proposal.
PLOT:
Alvin (voice of JUSTIN LONG), Theodore (voice of JESSE McCARTNEY) and Simon (voice of MATTHEW GRAY GUBLER) are three chipmunks who live with their unofficial adoptive human father, Dave Seville (JASON LEE), in Los Angeles where he works as a record producer. He's recently been seeing Samantha (KIMBERLY WILLIAMS-PAISLEY) and the chipmunks come under the impression that he's going to propose to her on a trip to Miami. They not only fear having her bully son, Miles (JOSH GREEN), as their step-brother, but also that Dave might be done with them and kick them out.

With Miles not wanting to be related to them either, the four set off from L.A. to Miami in hopes of derailing the proposal. Unfortunately, a series of mishaps onboard their flight -- caused by the chipmunks -- brings about the ire of air marshal Agent James Suggs (TONY HALE) who decrees that the trio of rodents be placed on the do not fly list. Now grounded, they and Miles try to make their way however they can to Miami before it's too late, all with Agent Suggs in hot pursuit.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Younger kids probably will, especially if they're fans of any of the previous Chipmunks movies or anything related to the characters.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
