“..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]

“..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

GABBAR IS BACK :

“..dumbed down to a ridiculous degree, the film - directed by hotshot Telugu director Krish - tries to be a less-pathetic version of Salman Khan's Jai Ho and might have succeeded on that count were it not for an absolutely daft script..”
by Raja Sen [Rediff]

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
