There's also Jenny Slate (probably best known for her Freudian slip on 'SNL') channeling Tom Hanks' 'Cast Away' to provide some small chuckles. But these moments are not enough to rescue this rubbish for the adult audience.
She does provide the only really good moment for adults. For guys, specifically. The scene where they're dancing in the rain, she looks quite good in her shorts there. But that was it.

I was sorting baseball cards at the same time I "watched" this. The first two were passable, this was pretty awful. Read somewhere there's going to be a fourth. If I didn't have a six year old who called this "the greatest movie ever", I'd go nowhere near it.

My standards are pretty low for kids films and as the meme goes, "I'm OK with this".

I mostly enjoyed it for the eye candy and a few moderately funny moments.

The Chipettes were rather cute also, for whatever that's worth.

Yeah, I am a Chippets fan as well. I had a crush on Britney until I was about 9, when I realized that they were not real.

As for the movie, I was like, "eh". It gave me something to do with my friend's kids at Christmas, and at the $4 matinee, it was enjoyable. Its a rental, though, unless you have kids. Certainly won't be buying this, though, anytime soon. It was entertaining, if you want something amusing and cute and don't really want to think about it. I would probably give it a 1 to 1.5 stars myself. It is definitely not as good at the first two.

Yes, this is strictly for the little ones in the family. For adults, there is very little worth admiring.

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.
