Wait, there was a second Alvin and the Chipmunks movie? And it made more money than the original one? And theyíre making another film?!

Consider me blessed. I have two young sons, and they havenít made me watch either Chipmunks film, which means Iíll probably be able to dodge this bullet when it comes out on Dec. 16. But for those of you out there patiently awaiting the further adventures of Alvin, Simon and Theodore -- you know, besides Jason Lee and his agent -- we have the first full trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip Wrecked (courtesy of Apple.com):

Love the Titanic joke. I think the only way Iíd see Chip Wrecked is if someone told me the boat carrying Alvin and his crew strikes an actual iceberg, and the filmís second half mirrors the ends of James Cameronís Oscar winner. And whatís with the tagline? ďMunk Yourself.Ē Thatís supposed to mean ďFuck Yourself,Ē right? Is that what the studio is telling us to do?

So why, you might ask, are we being asked to endure more Alvin? I think back to Field of Dreams, which taught us, ďIf you build it, they will come.Ē Audiences have turned out in droves to support the first two films, which earned $217.3 million and $219.6 million, respectively. Itís a no-brainer for 20th Century Fox. Shouldnít it be a no brainer for people to demand better entertainment, though?
