Critics Consensus: In some respects, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip is a marginal improvement over prior installments, although this in no way qualifies as a recommendation.

It's all mostly harmless as far as these things go - lazy, sure, but harmless.

In general, "Alvin" is funny and, sometimes, a little bit sweet.

Fourth Chipmunks movie is silly, brand-filled (as always).

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip is similar to the previous movies and features many of the same kinds of jokes, pop culture references, pop/hip-hop musical numbers, and physical comedy. There's less chipmunk romance in this one, since the Chipettes are only in a few scenes, but Dave does have a girlfriend he embraces and very briefly kisses. There's a little bit of comical violence, mostly involving an air marshal who gets beaten up in a bar brawl and hit in the groin and has toothpicks stuck in his face. The marshal also drinks moonshine in New Orleans. Expect some rude/insult language and a few suggestive song lyrics (ex. "I like big butts"). The message, as always, is about the importance of family and teamwork, but kids may be too busy laughing at the scatological jokes and the silly gags to notice.
