Parents, I feel for you. With “Hotel Transylvania 2,” “The Peanuts Movie,” and now “Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Road Chip” coming, the next six months are not going to be easy. And ‘The Road Trip’ looks like it will be particularly painful.
If you’re wondering why 20th Century Fox is making this movie, the simple answer is that to date, the franchise has earned $1.1 billion around the world, and lord knows how much else in merchandise and licensing. And so here we are with “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip,” with Jason Lee earning a paycheck, once again appearing as the aggrieved Dave who has to put up with the wily, party loving Alvin and his brothers. Here’s the synopsis:
Through a series of misunderstandings, Alvin, Simon and Theodore come to believe that Dave is going to propose to his new girlfriend in New York City…and dump them. They have three days to get to him and stop the proposal, saving themselves not only from losing Dave but possibly from gaining a terrible stepbrother.
‘The Road Chip’ arrives on December 23rd. Check out what you’re in for below.
