ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS - THE SQUEAKQUEL is a US animated comedy film about three musical chipmunks and their attempts to win a school music competition to raise enough money to save their school's music department. It was passed 'U' for very mild language.

At 'U', the Board's language guidelines state that 'Infrequent use only of very mild bad language' is allowed and this film contains infrequent use of "butt" and "jerk" which accord with this rubric.

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS - THE SQUEAKQUEL also contains a scene where a man breaks wind under a duvet where one of the chipmunks is trying to sleep, a scene where a toy motorcycle runs into a man's crotch as he lies on his back on the ground and scenes showing a man and a chipmunk having their heads pushed into a toilet bowl by bullies whilst the chain is pulled. None of these scenes is insensitive or inappropriate for young children, particularly as the boys bullying the chipmunk receive their comeuppance at the end of the film when they are given boring and tedious chores to perform and the scenes are unlikely to be copied as this is presented as bad behaviour which requires one of the other chipmunk friends to step in and save the bullied chipmunk.
