Alvin, Simon and Theodore return for a fourth big screen outing in The Road Chip and here is everything you need to know about it...


What’s The Plot?

This movie begins happily enough with the three boys and their good friends in the Chipettes hosting a lavish birthday for their longtime friend Dave Seville. But it soon turns out they now have a big problem, Dave looks set to dump them in favour of his new girlfriend. Desperate to stop this happening they track Dave down in Miami and vow to try and stop him in his tracks


Who’s In It?

Jason Lee is back once again as Dave Seville, with Justin Long, Jesse McCartney and Matthew Gray Gubler returning to voice the chipmunks. Christina Applegate, Anna Faris and Kaley Cuoco voice the Chipettes, while there are also roles for Dark Shadows star Bella Thorne and Orange Is The New Black's Uzo Aduba.


And Who’s Behind The Camera?

It’s a change in that department as Walt Becker, director of Wild Hogs and Old Dogs, takes the director’s chair. Randi Mayem Singer (Mrs Doubtfire) and Adam Sztykiel (Due Date) are on writing duties and Mark Mothersbaugh is back to score the film.


Does It Deliver?

This is the fourth instalment of the series so you know what to expect. Big slapstick laughs and lots of high-pitched hilarity, kids will love it.
