3/28/12: Alvin and The Chipmunks Chipwrecked Review and Concert Footage

Who doesn't love Alvin and the Chipmunks?  I loved them when I was a kid and now my kids love them too.  Their cute squeaky voices and the hi jinks that Alvin gets them into are always such fun to watch.  Recently I was able to review Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. 
You can also refer back to my review of the Wii Game that goes along with this movie here.  The DVD/Blu-ray or Wii Game would be a great Easter Basket gift.

What a super cute movie where the Chipmunks and the Chipettes reunite just became available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on March 27th.  My kids loved this film and got such a kick out of the Chipmunks It is also cool that being Chipwrecked on an island together.  Lauren Gottlieb from So You Think You Can Dance is in the movie too.  Being a dancer and loving that show I love to see those young talented dancers being featured.  I remember Hawk being in the last Alvin and the Chipmunks movie.
I also have some cool exclusive footage for you from the Concert for the Blu-ray release of "Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked' from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment at The El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA that happened Monday, March 26th.  In Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, Honor Society performed "You Really Got Me" during the opening scene with the film's main characters.  Here they are with the Chipmunks.
Here is some video from the concert:
