Hello, My Movievaures! I hope you had a great week. I’m back with a new Disney movie review: Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. To be quite honest, I had no intention whatsoever of watching this movie, even though I liked the show back in the day. There is so much to see nowadays that if the show or movie is not appealing to me from the beginning I tend not to give it a shot straight away. However, it was without counting my partner’s love for cartoons, so we spent a nice Friday evening recalling some nice childhood memories!
Chip’n Dale: Rescue Rangers, is set in a modern-day Los Angeles where Cartoons and Humans live together. We get to follow Chip and Dale, as they are forced to renew their relationship when one of their common friends is kidnapped, hiding a bigger conspiracy that reflects how difficult success is to maintain in showbusiness. This movie is a direct continuation of the series of the same name which was canceled in 1991. The constant references to 90’s kids’ memories and the current state of the animation world show the main goal of this movie is to reach out to young adults in need of a good and sincere laugh.
This movie was so fun to watch. I wasn’t a huge fan of the original cartoons when I was a kid, but it was good entertainment. However, even if you’ve never watched the show before, this movie is still enjoyable as there are many references to a huge catalog of childhood memories as current ones. One of the best is Ugly Sonic, Old Peter Pan, and the rivalry with The Chipmunks, amongst others. The jokes are constantly a mix between goofiness and maturity, pointing out once again who is the targetted population. Of course, there is enough cuteness to bring out your inner child back!
In short, Chip’ n Dale is an enjoyable cartoon movie created for the only purpose of pleasing young adults raised in the 90’s. It is unapologetically goofy and meta at the same time reminding some of Walt Disney’s movies like Rogger Rabbit, with the mix of 2D, 3D, and live-action. It is innocent enough to watch it with older kids, but still, make sure they are innocent enough not to understand every plot implication and dirty jokes. Overall, it is entertaining, original, and smart as hell. This is all for today My Movievaures.
