They had all the tools and rights to produce something really great and funny here. While the story is decent (albeit a bit too similar to Roger Rabbit) and the different kinds of animation styles and puppets was fun to see, the movie wasn't funny or fun. There's barely any jokes, funny scenes or funny characters and the existing "jokes" was very lame and tame.
I constantly question comedy nowadays. When people are working with the things they love and get the opportunity to do a movie, which only happens to relatively few, there should be TONS of funny jokes, wacky characters and funny scenes to chose from. Yet it feel like most comedies, like this one, is just a soulless chore for movie makers, that they're happy to just complete. Who OKs scripts like this? Nobody gave any input on the lack of comedy? Or do the people who gives the OKs nowadays not know what funny is?
Fmovies: Surprised with the clever jokes and the attention to detail, the movie is just a Gift for the 90's children.
Amazing production, impossible to see without a smile on the face.
Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers is good. It is a really funny film with various cameos throughout the film. The plot itself isn't the most original, as I've seen it done before, but the dialogue between characters feels authentic and funny at the right times. I enjoyed this film.
Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers fmovies. I'm a man from the Duck Tales Generation so indeed I loved the idea of a reboot movie about Chip N' Dale's Rescue Rangers, but this was so much more. Somewhat a modern take on who Frame Rodger Rabbit, Chip N. Dale play out of work cartoon characters who have not been relevant snice the Disney Afternoon, who get back together in order to solve a real crime.
It's a satire on the whole animation business. Lucky for Disney, they have a large roster of animation to choose from. The long history of animation is explored as this new Chip and Dale don't just live in a world of 2D animation, but CGI, stop motion, even puppets interact with the humans here. We also get great cameos from other cartoon characters who add to the showbiz concept of sometimes you're on top with your movie on a billboard on the Sunset strip and sometimes you're not the main attraction at comic con. They left no stone unturned about what Geekdom is like today and every stone turned made me laugh out loud
I feel like Disney may have missed the mark on this one. In a world filled with geeks completely nostalgic over their childhood I feel this reboot of the Rescue Rangers could have made a decent dime at the box office. It just celebrated what the whole culture was about. Love it!
With a phenomenal cast and incredibly funny and satirical script- Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers is a tremendously fun time and the best hybrid animated/live action flick since Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I have to come clean first, as I have never actually watched the original Rescue Rangers tv show, although I have always had a firm desire to do so at some point. Knowing little to nothing about the characters at hand besides there small presence in some classic Mickey Mouse cartoons- I still found myself to deeply enjoy this film for what it was, and loved its new take and incredible satire on the animation industry. First off, the cast is just amazing; John Mulaney, Andy Samberg, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, J. K. Simmons, Keegan Michael KEy, Eric Bana, Tim Robinson, and so many more- not to mention its written and directed by Akiva Schaffer of The Lonely Island- there is just so much to geek out about here. The script can go through some familiar elements at times, and it definitely is inspired by the likes of films like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but definitely better than other films with that same copycat idea like Cool World or Monkeybone. Besides some basic bland formula structure, I enjoyed the humor of this film deeply- and loved the way they handled the references throughout- especially with Ugly Sonic and the numerous Seth Rogen characters which had me dying every time they were on screen. It also had a surprising amount of heart to it as well, and even made me tear up towards the end there, which I have to say I was not expecting from a film about two talking chipmunks. In the end, Chip 'n Dale may not be as perfect as Roger Rabbit but it's a wonderful and hilarious spiritual successor that I certainly wouldn't mind watching again and am disappointed to see go straight to streaming.
My Rating: 8.9/10.
With all of the self aware jabs at some of the worst trends in Hollywood filmmaking as well as a ridiculous amount of characters from different studios crossing over, it's a miracle that Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers exists in the current filmmaking landscape.
What makes it even better is that it's a great film that's impressively paced, funny and pretty heartwarming. A love letter to animation by including as many different forms of it as possible, including the more disturbing ones.
John Mulaney cleverly chooses to play it almost completely straight which really helps him bounce off Andy Samberg's energy and adorable naivety. Rounding out the main three is Kiki Layne, who is just as likeable and energetic.
Akiva Schaffer's direction is excellent, the film is definitely different to his previous work but he adapts perfectly. The visual effects are consistently strong and the practical and CG blends together nicely overall.
