$200 million plus doesn't mean its good
Alvin and the Chipmunks The Squeakuel
Release date: Dec. 2, 2009
U.S. box office: $219 million
Why it's bad: As hard to endure as the first installment was, the "Squeakuel" (it hurts my brain just to type that) seemed content to aim even lower, with slumming actors Jason Lee and David Cross rubbing elbows with the one time novelty acts-turned-tiny CG monsters of the title. Good thing the third one didn't make any money or else we might get a fourth. Oh wait...Shudder.
