Alvin and The Chipmunks 4 Chipettes to the rescue
(The Philippine Star) - January 8, 2016 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines – Kaley Cuoco, Anna Faris and Christina Applegate reprise their roles voicing the charming Chipettes in the latest family road-adventure Alvin and The Chipmunks 4: The Road Chip.

In the movie, the boys hit the road for a coming-of-age journey across the US.  During their storied misadventures, Alvin (voiced by Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Theodore (Jesse McCartney) have always had to solve problems they’ve created themselves. But during their road chip, and for the first time, they’re on a mission to keep their family together.

The idea of Dave tying the knot doesn’t thrill the boys; in fact, they fear it will uproot their lives — and maybe uproot them from Dave’s home. Further complicating matters is Sam’s teenage son, Miles (Josh Green), who has an instant dislike of the Chipmunks, who feel the same way about Miles. Along their journey, Alvin, Theodore and Simon need to make things right with the help of the Chipettes, Eleanor (Cuoco), Jeanette (Faris) and Brittany (Applegate) who are now music icons seated to discover rising talents in their own TV show. Alvin, along with the help of the Chipettes, tries to gain Dave’s trust once again after Alvin, Theodore and Simon accidentally ruined a romantic night during Dave’s business trip in Miami.

“The opportunity to experience new locations through the Chipmunks’ eyes is very compelling,” says director Walt Becker.  Additionally, “Everybody remembers family trips, which can be equal parts adventures and tortuous experiences, so that’s very relatable.”

Alvin and The Chipmunks 4: The Road Chip shakes things up, musically.  Each stop on the “Munks and Miles” quest has its own special character and different musical influence — from modern, hip-hop/country vibe of an Austin, Texas bar to the great jazz, blues and funk of New Orleans, and finally to the Latin flair of Miami.

Continuing a soundtrack tradition for the series, Alvin and the Chipmunks put their own delightful new spin on smashes including Uptown Funk and Turn Down For What. In addition, Redfoo and the boys trade verses on Juicy Wiggle (Munk Remix). The soundtrack also features Sheppard’s platinum-certified international hit Geronimo and The Score’s Oh My Love. 

Alvin and The Chipmunks 4: The Road Chip opens Jan. 20 nationwide, from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
