Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers - Movie Review

Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers is a hybrid live-action/CG animation action-comedy. It is an all-new, never-done-before film based on pre-existing IP owned by Disney. Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers stars John Mulaney and Andy Samberg and is now streaming on Disney+.


In “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers,” Chip and Dale live amongst cartoons and humans in modern-day Los Angeles, but their lives are pretty different now. It has been decades since their successful television series was canceled. Chip (voice of Mulaney) has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman. Meanwhile, Dale (voice of Sandberg) has had CGI surgery. He works the nostalgia convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days. When a former castmate mysteriously disappears, Chip and Dale must repair their broken friendship and take on their Rescue Rangers detective personas once again to save their friend’s life.

Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers is full of self-references from start to finish. It could have been called the Multiverse of Toon Madness. This film is a risky and bizarre idea but stuck the landing. It would have done so well in theaters. Kids will love the colorful and fun world seen throughout. Adults will enjoy the nostalgia and the non-stop call-backs. From E.T. to Terminator, expect every pop culture reference shoved in your face. If you Love easter eggs in movies, I challenge you to keep up with the amount in this cinematic offering, now available to stream.


I give Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers 4 out of 5 stars. It is an entertaining family film as close as a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit we will ever get. Watch it now on Disney+.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
