Our favorite Chip ‘n Dale are back with a brand new film, Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. I will review the movie today and let you know if it is worth checking out.
The film follows Chip and Dale who live different lives and when a cast member from the original series disappears, the pair must reunite to save their friend. The film stars John Mulaney as Chip and Andy Samberg as Dale with KiKi Layne, Will Arnett, J.K. Simmons, Seth Rogen, and others. It debuts on Disney+ on May 20, 2022.
The movie kicks off with Dale telling us the age-old story of his friendship with Chip. How it started, rose to stardom, and how they were living the dream. Dale was tired of playing second-fiddle and started to take on projects of his own, affecting his relationship with Chip. Chip ‘n Dale was canceled and shortly after, Dale’s Tales was also. But now, Dale wants to make a comeback years later.
As Dale is making a comeback, he wonders what Chip is up to these days. We see Chip is selling insurance and is quite successful at doing it. But, while life might be thriving, Chip is a bit of a loner and keeps to himself until he gets a call from an old friend, Monty, and goes to pay a visit. Unfortunately, he finds out that Monty is for big money with the Valley Gang. The next day, the Valley Gang kidnaps Monty, which causes the reuniting of Chip ‘n Dale.
We are as much detectives as the Scooby Doo gang.
Dare I say that Chip ‘n Dale handled cameos better than Doctor Strange 2? I loved the little callback to so many characters throughout this film. Every single time you saw one, it brought back some true nostalgia to the table.
The comedy is about what you expect, honestly, especially when it comes to the crew of Andy Samberg and John Mulaney. Some jokes hit, some don’t, but the overall number of jokes that land outweighs those that don’t. You sprinkle in some of the side characters that bring some laughs to the table, and you straight up have a good time.
Look, Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers will bring back memories of a lot of people’s childhoods. I would also bank on it making a bunch of new fans across new generations because the movie is that much fun. When you blend the fun reducing with the laughs, you get an action-adventure that keeps you interested. I really enjoyed the movie and wouldn’t hate seeing another one.
