Squeakquel Spring Break - Movie Review & Giveaway

It's spring break. That means I'm letting my kids stay up late and watch lots of fun movies.

You know what I realized tonight after having to watch Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 "The Squeakquel" for the second time in the past three days? I may think the chipmunks are a little cheesy, but I'm not the target audience and my sons really like them.

I'm also not a bad mom because I'm letting my boys watch a movie they like more than once in the same week. Over and over again on repeat if they want. Because it's spring break. Dear PR people, thank you for sending me a copy to review because you're helping occupy my family with fun during spring break.

In all seriousness, I'm cool letting my boys watch the Squeakquel, especially since there's no blood, gore or violence. No rump shaking - oh, wait, I take that back because the girl group the Chipettes have a hilarious renditions of Beyonce's "Single Ladies". But don't listen to me, here's what my boys say:

Mr. O, age 9: "I thought it was pretty fun since the guy chipmunks have a competition with the girl chipmunks. There was a lot more music and it was pretty amazing and funny." He gives it three stars.

Mr. T, age 6: "It was good. I wish it had them skateboarding. That would've been really cool." He also gives it three stars - and yes, he's obsessed with skateboarding. He's six and he has three skateboards.

Anyway, to make it sort of educational, how about some Squeakquel coloring sheets? You can print those out and make your kids color them if that will make you feel better about them having more TV screen time than is recommended by your pediatrician. Don't think coloring is educational? Sigh, I'll pray for you.

The Squeaquel was the first movie we took James to see at the theater. He saw the first one at his cousin's house and LOVED it!

Hey, Thanks for this review. I am skeptical ... am averse to the kids consuming much media, so even tho A wants to see this, I have resisted. Now, if we win a copy, he wins, and I give in.

My kids love this movie. I'm entering on their behalf.

T. says it's a really good movie (age 6) and K. says I like the Chipettes' song, meaning "Single Ladies" (age 3, and singing the song right now).

I would absolutely love, love, love to win this for the kids and I. They have been repeatedly telling me how much the love that movie and wish I could get it for them. This would really help me out tremendously!!!

We have yet to see this movie by the way. We still love the first one though.

thanks so much and if I don't leave a comment before Sunday - Happy Easter to you all and hears hoping you all have a wonderful day filled with family fun!
