"In between the cutesy musical covers (from the Go-Go's to Lady Gaga), the young rodents engage in harmless slapstick and even learn a bit about themselves." - Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic

"For kids, familiarity, silliness and Dave's unconditional love make it appealing. For adults, the best it has to offer are nostalgia and a running time under 90 minutes." - Nell Minow, Chicago Sun-Times

"Lazy, rote, and grating, Chipwrecked is lowest-common-denominator family entertainment that's strictly for the very, very, very young at heart." -

"It's an uninspired and instantly forgettable film. But it completely succeeds by its own standards: an 87-minute rainy-day distraction that will probably make a zillion dollars." - Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle

"Maybe for the next installment, they can go off to college and find something better to do than making these silly movies." - Claudia Puig, USA Today

"Good news: The shrill CG rodents, who last infested theaters in 2009's Squeakquel, are stranded on a jungle island with little hope of survival. Bad news: They've brought us along." - Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly

"Well, at least it isn't in 3D." - Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter

"Puns like these would be unforgivable coming from a human. From high-pitched rodents, they prompt calls for an exterminator." - Jake Coyle, Associated Press
