What’s it about?

Alvin, Simon and Theodore are upset when Dave finds a new star client called Ashley and feel that he wants to replace them with her. The Chipmunks are also very worried when they find an engagement ring in Dave’s bag and think he’s going to ask Samantha to marry him. They aren’t at all happy about this because Samantha has a son called Miles who isn’t nice to them. The Chipmunks travel to Miami to try and prevent the wedding but trouble starts when Theodore lets some animals out of their cages on the plane.

What to look out for

There is some fighting in this movie mostly done for laughs such as:

  • Toothpicks are thrown into a man’s face and get stuck there but he isn’t hurt.
  • The Chipmunks and Miles are arrested for hitting an air marshal in the groin with a slingshot.
  • Lots of people get into a fight.

Moral of the Story

The message of the story is that families are very important and will often forgive you when you make mistakes but it’s a good thing to think before you do something.
