Decades since their successful television series was canceled, Chip has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman. Dale, meanwhile, has had CGI surgery and works the nostalgia convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days. When a former cast mate 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.
I went into this with quiet optimism. It was not rewarded. The set-up, the story and effects all work well enough. It’s just really badly put together. It has loads of what should be great little touches that just don’t land. It’s like a five year old telling a joke, where all the timing and intonation is off.
