Having proven successful on the big screen in 2007, Alvin, Simon and Theodore returned in computer-animated form in this fun sequel. They remain musically inclined, and they find they have new rivals in the alluring Chipettes, whose career is being guided by the Chipmunks' ex-manager (David Cross).
Jason Lee returns from the first film as Alvin's mentor, David Seville, with Zachary Levi ("Chuck") also on board; Christina Applegate, Anna Faris and Amy Poehler join the voice cast. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries. *** (PG: V) (Also on Blu-ray)
