Review rate : A

“..would be sufficient to slaughter every brain cell and induce blithering idiocy..”
by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..tones down the slapstick and potty humor, thus meriting a family-friendly G rating..”
by Nell Minow [Chicago Sun-Times]
1 of 4

“..this is the film for you..”
by Joel Brown [Boston Globe]
1 of 4

“..the story is a jumbled mess - the plot of "The Smurfs" looks like "The Usual Suspects" by comparison - but there is something in this film for absolutely everyone..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
1 of 5

“..the story from screenwriters Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, who wrote the far better "Squeakquel"..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
Review rate : C

“..the sequel's target audience may be too young to realize that the best punch lines are long past their expiration date..”
by Kerry Lengel [Arizona Republic]
Review rate : C

“..the result does right by kids..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
Review rate : D

“..serves up more of the derivative chaos that floats this franchise's boat..”
by Sean O'Connell [Washington Post]
1.5 of 4

“..oddly, the movie's message about trusting one's children is aimed at parents, though Chipwrecked seems targeted to viewers under 7..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..frantic, frenetic, groan-inducing and all around grating as its two predecessors..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : D+

“..everts to nothing more than a cynical stab at grabbing kids' attention-and, more importantly, their parents' cash..”
by Adam Markovitz [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : C+

“..ended up with only a G rating is a mystery..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]
1 of 4

“..chip-Wrecked will entertain youngsters - at least those not frightened of exploding mountains and weird adults..”
by Jennie Punter [Globe and Mail]
Review rate : D

“..by now the Chipmunk canon is entrenched enough to be able to squirt out a new movie with a cheeky play-on-words title every two years..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..blatant contempt for conventional narrative and American culture..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
2 of 4

“..assault will appeal only to the under-10 set and send everyone else running for ear plugs..”
by Tom Meek [Boston Phoenix]

LATEST REVIEWS

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]

ALL RELATIVE :

“..not entirely successful attempt at doing something unexpected within the traditional romantic-comedy framework..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

THE SLEEPWALKER :

“..a tentative feint toward genre territory can't conceal the slightness of this heightened drama..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
