MPOV: Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked
During a cruise, for a family vacation, the Chipmunks and Chipettes turn the ship into their personal playground causing trouble and running amok as they will. Dave (Jason Lee) notices that his old boss, Ian Hawke (David Cross) working as a safety monitor on the cruise. Alvin goes para-sailing on a kite and he flies away with the other chipmunks. Dave goes on a hang glider to find them with Ian and they both end up in the ocean.
Meanwhile, the six chipmunks find an island and they sleep for the night. Dave enlists Ian's help find the same island and begin looking for the six chipmunks. The next morning, the chipmunks go and find food and while doing so, an island castaway named Zoe (Jenny Slate) shows up and sees the Chipmunks and Chipettes for the first time. They then go to Zoe's tree house and Simon gets bitten by a spider, the side effects include personality changes and loss of inhibition.
The morning after, everyone observes Simon's personality has changed and he becomes a French, adventurous chipmunk named Simone. Simone asks Jeanette to dance to Alvin's dismay. Later, Zoe takes Simone, Jeanette, Eleanor and Theodore to a waterfall and Simone finds a cave. He returns with a gold bracelet which he gives to Jeanette. Brittany and Alvin see an active volcano the next day and they decide to leave the island. Theodore and Simone find Dave and Ian and they go to meet with the other chipmunks. They all begin to prepare a raft to get them off the island and everyone was assigned a job. When Jeanette and Simone go and look for food, Zoe kidnaps Jeanette and Simone gets knocked unconscious, and reverted to normal.

Yet another hilarious installment, although with the same technicality and storyline. Worthwhile to enjoy after a tiring and stressful day. An educational movie too for the young ones ^.^
