Review: 'Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers'

Written by 20 May, 2022

Reboots of any television show can be a tricky thing. The premise might sound ludicrous, but given the right amount of talent nearly any idea has the potential of exceeding your expectations. The laughable sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica was rebooting into one of most compelling dramas of the genre. And the reboot of Saved By The Bell became...well, maybe that's not a great example. Hey, wasn't that reboot of Battlestar Galactica really well done?

I did not have a great deal of optimism that the new movie Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers was going to be able to capture the joy and the classic animated series. The original was so well done that it was difficult to imagine how those characters could be rebooted into a movie that is set in modern-day California. But not only were my fears unjustified, I could not have been more mistaken.

Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers is an absolute delight. It's funny, warm and it is crammed with unexpected cameos and literally dozens of increasingly off-the-wall pop culture references. It's the perfect family film and is a special treat if you grew up on the original Disney Afternoon animated block of shows.

The movie takes place in the present day, thirty years after Chip & Dale's TV show was cancelled. They live in a Roger Rabbit world where humans and animated characters live side-by-side and in a lot of ways this film is the sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? that I always wished someone would make. In this film, Chip (voiced by John Mulaney) is living a lonely life in the suburbs as an insurance salesman. Dale (voiced by Andy Samberg), meanwhile, has had CGI surgery and works the convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days. 

Dale's appearance at the convention is a tip-of that this film is going to be something special. He's sitting in an autograph booth, surrounded by other quasi celebrities, all hoping for a little attention. There's Ugly Sonic (the Sonic with the human teeth), the candlestick from Beauty and the Beast and of course The Jungle Book's Baloo, who is the star of the event. 

Chip and Dale haven't spoken since Dale left the Rescue Rangers to do his own series (which didn't last longer than the pilot). Dale keeps hoping for a reunion, and has paid for a CGI upgrade in hopes of appearing younger. But the team getting back together seems impossible until the duo are forced to work together after their old Rangers pal Monterey Jack is kidnapped. They learn he is going to be altered and forced to act in bootleg animated films. A plotline which will open up all sorts of unexpected cameos later in the film.

Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers perfectly captures the chaos of the original series while still being able to put the characters firmly in the modern world. Nearly every scene has some unexpected image or pop culture joke and even the throwaway posters are hilarious (Meryl Streep in "Mr. Doubtfire"). 

I am not going to spoil anything about the film's many surprises, but I will say it's been a long time since I laughed this much while watching an animated film. This movie is absolutely first-rate, so much so that I suspect Disney would have done very well if it had decided to release the movie into theaters first.

Kids will love Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers, but there is also a lot for adults to enjoy. The film ends with what seems to be a good set-up for a sequel and I hope that happens. 

It's been a tough few months, and Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers is just the sort of mental palate cleanse we all need right about now.

Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers premiered Friday, May 20th, 2022 on Disney+
