I like the previous movies. Despite the many negative reviews and relatively low ratings, I like each of the three films, even the third part. Therefore, it is not paying attention to low rating of this film, I still going on  a"Grand road chip" in the movie. And not sorry...

The movie I liked it. I'm not even know to select. I guess I still not will be able to distinguish a clear advantage of the film. He I liked the whole, to make out anything in detail I can't. Well, at least try.

I liked the plot. The plot is nothing Shine. He is very standard and even clichéd. I can you name many films where the action develops in a similar way. The than sad story that uses the film look very funny and interesting.

About the characters not know to write. All in the previous installments. Added several characters, including a new antagonist. The only thing that I don't like is that the film is too little burunduchok.

What to say about the humor? A large part of the jokes have probably heard in other films and cartoons. The original humor of "road chip" is not possess. But still, over jokes you can laugh. In General, humour makes a good impression.

As in the previous parts, in the film sounds a lot of songs. No one song, especially not remember. Remember only that during the session, listen to them it was quite nice.

Again, paintings of no special merit. But film like it. He pleasant anyway, if you want to rest half an hour, the movie you will do.

However, it is worth noting that it is a children's film. Children will like this movie, but because it will appeal to adults I do not respond.

Of the minuses can allocate too abrupt ending in  the"road chip" little burunduchok. Perhaps, everything. &Nbsp;yeah, klishirovannyh I do not find fault.

I recommend to take at movie kids. Children film exactly like it. And not even should pay attention to the rating, if the movie is like a child, so his mission he performed. Go to the movie kids have a good time. The film is good. And again, don't mind rating.

The news of already the fourth continuation of a franchise on the chipmunks I was upset. Do not three parts? And maybe the creators decided to correct the mistakes of previous paintings and give you least one good sequel? If...

things got worse.

First, worsened the animation of the chipmunks. They become worse drawn, became more cartoonish. So they looked quite unnatural on the background of live shots.

Second, deteriorated sense of humor. He never were particularly good, but I slipped fit the jokes rarely, but was prostaival. Now the humor is a set of gags in the style of "crashed into " and outhouse jokes.

The acting is terrible. The actor, who plays the antagonist, in addition to antics, don't have shown anything at all, the actress, who plays new girl Dave, the entire film is strained smiles and everything, the actor playing the role of Dave, plays is better than in first second in the third part.

The characters are formulaic and stereotypical, nor at least developing. Alvin — same the stereotypical tough guy like and the previous parts, Simon — the stereotypical nerd, Theodore — character template, you only need to the Comedy, burunduki still differ from each other only by the color of the clothes, and Dave — same weak-willed man, does not able to cope with a bunch of rodents.

We can say that it's forgivable, because it is a children's film. No, not forgivable. If the audience is — children means it will swallow any trash. Look at work of the Studio "Pixar" or"Ghibli". They make really masterpiece paintings, although a significant part of their audience — children.

The question remains, why shoot another sequel? No one part of the franchise not received accolades from critics, but continue continue to go again and again and again... Because it pays off. Look, any cash collected, only that tape. It's a shame that people prefer this movie really worthwhile paintings. "Alvin and the chipmunks" — not that the franchise that is worthy of many sequels. There are so many good movies, I never will the sequels take at least a picture of "Agents A. N. K. L.". All because they have paid off in full. And it's sad.

"Alvin and the chipmunks: road chip Grand" is produced from me a big fat one.

Fueling the passion to music, Ross Bagdasarian the at least not for many years was able to achieve true recognition, working in classic periodically appearing on Broadway in various productions. But that all changed in 1958, when it came up with the idea to synthesize human speech under the comic sounds made by the rodents. Creating a virtual group referred to as "Alvin and the chipmunks", Bagdasarian released a few very real music albums that instantly climbed on the top. Fictional characters in the person of Alvin, Simon and Theodore so much loved by audience that in a cartoon series was completely natural phenomenon. Through the efforts of Ross Baghdasaryan its newfound Empire entertainment has slowed down, and even after death of "Alvin and the chipmunks" is not wind down with the right approach to business the son of the Creator of the group. The unfading popularity of the singing trio in the end brought the chipmunks to the big screen. Full game adaptation of the ideas of Ross Baghdasaryan-the senior has arrived to 2007, becoming one of the highest-grossing family films of the decade. Such remarkable success has led to the obligatory sequel, and in the issued the road to trikvela, uruchomiono by pieces of artistic merit, but gathered hire a pretty impressive amount. Knowing that put on pipeline "Alvin and chipmunks" in cinematic form, it is it means to have a stable income no significant costs, producers of the 20th Century Fox decided to go for the scope of the trilogy and suddenly many viewers gave the nod to the shooting of the fourth part, "Alvin and the chipmunks: road chip Grand". As before, the unchanged role of the senior companion and in some ways the father of three of the characters were played by Jason Lee, a regular at the franchise, whose a career today is not in the rosy condition. All without exception, the original voice actors also took part in the filming, considering that even the failure of the tape is not can affect their stellar reputation. But here is the vacant seat of Director at this time took Walt Becker, known to us for a fun teen Comedy "van Wilder". And Studio bosses, and fans of the chipmunks pinned on Becker's a lot of hope, considering it best candidate for to refresh the fading originality of a franchise without out the scope of family values.

So, on this time the story begins with a celebrating the next day of the birth of Dave (Lee) on which he doesn't gets. But Alvin and the company is absolutely not stop: if the chipmunks set out to organize a party, it can not be sure that they will achieve the desired. Dozens of guests, entertainment from the pool fireworks not given the whole area to sleep up to late in the evening, but the sudden appearance of Dave graduated from the fun and brings an unexpected discovery. It turns out that the heart of the hero here for several months occupied by the charming Samantha (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), with which Dave is going to spend unforgettable vacation in Sunny Miami. The anxiety of the situation is that Dave is a catch with a wedding ring, and the chipmunks are forced to stay at home, even the company is not the very welcome son of Samantha, miles (Josh green). Not nourishing each friend nor the slightest sympathy, guys do not want soon to become relatives, and go to long full of various events the journey from one end of the country in the other, in order to prevent the engagement. And how you'd guess, according to the way miles and the chipmunks gradually converging, becoming if not to relatives, it in a good friend too sure. So that they do not know if to disturb Dave, but as always in the event interferes with the unexpected, to anticipate the subsequent events it is simply impossible.

With the advent of the Director's post of Walt Becker, the tone of the franchise dramatically not change, the number of jokes and black humor in the narrative and added that no surprising, considering the best works of the Director the past years. Not able to resist temptation, Becker as you should be amused, setting the stage with a youth party, which used the techniques of the popular tape with Ryan Reynolds in the title role. Of course, the scope of the family movie is not allowed Becker to open to show the use of alcohol and other recreational drugs, but the spirit of true entertainment in the tape is present, which can not good. Young people having fun, playing beer ping-pong, yeah and spends his spare time so that she inevitably begin to envy. Still, Walt Becker not had lost its former enthusiasm, vegetating in work on frankly second-rate crafts, waiting for the right moment like "Alvin and chipmunks" when he will return to the top League. At this dynamic attitude productions is rapidly declining in a time when the Director has to demonstrate family life Dave chipmunks. It is seen that the Becker is simply uninteresting to do trivial Comedy from what a significant part of the duration is yourself to the pain of the primitive, totally unsophisticated sight, able to amuse only the youngest viewers. The thrill of view the "Grand Borodulina" can be described by the graph in the form of waves. Resourcefulness and enthusiasm that and then give way to a banal family Comedy with a lot of stereotypes and advance obvious jokes, and then all is replaced by the opposite, and so to the very end.

Of uniquely correct solutions to the crew it is worth noting the reduction in screen time burunduchok stealing the viewer's attention from the present owners of the franchise, Alvin, Simon and Theodore. The second and third part of the series sin a contrived competition between rodents, causing irritation. Fortunately, that the creators of "Grand Borodulina" made at least some insights from bugs, delighting the audience a full shift on old comrades. In addition, finally, of the franchise has left Ian at the hawk performed by David Cross. The eternal enemy of chipmunks, greedy producer no sense of proportion and morale, finally fell in our eyes, even in adventures in the island was third part, from which it participation in "the Grand road chip" has been ordered. However, the subsequent replacement Jan in the person of air Marshal Sagga (Tony Hale) is called a good also not succeed. Frankly narrow-minded, ham, unsympathetic and simply repulsive Stalker fluffy Trinity is needed in the story solely for that cause a couple of mediocre gags, making viewers roll his eyes. And if not a reference to "Pink flamingos" and"to catch up to midnight," Marshal SAG had all the potential to become the object of hatred. But the Director timely adjusted the script and have saturated the movie charming asides that will please even the the audience that familiar with classic.

As for the music, then it is quite good, although inferior to the first two films in the franchise. In"Grand road chip" as before used many popular hits of recent times, however, only some of them familiar to most spectators and claim cult status. From a mild frustration musical numbers save as always charming chipmunks, drawn and voiced with the soul. Thus the fourth coming of Alvin is rapidly bypasses the third, but to deficiencies in all still a lot.
