Our Opinion:  Best movie of the year.  My entire family loves Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. We love everything about it. Little T has the nickname Simon because people seem to think he looks like him. He could not get enough, he was singing along with all of the music and we were all literally entertained. Of course Miss M loves the Chipettes and we love their adorable outfits. We defiantly give this movie two thumbs up and will be watching it over and over again. Here is a video of my oldest and youngest dancing to the music, my youngest was hiding from the camera.
