David Cross: 'Chip-Wrecked' Was 'Most Unpleasant Experience'

Who doesn't like singing chipmunks? Apparently David Cross, who just finished up his three-movie contract, has had just about enough of them.

"This last film was literally, without question, the most unpleasant experience I've ever had in my professional life," the "Arrested Development" star told Indiewire of "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked", where he worked alongside typically non-squeaky voiced actors like Justin Long and Amy Poehler. "It's safe to say I won't be working with some of those people ever again. Not the actors. And the director [Mike Mitchell] was great. We got along. It was just a really awful, unpleasant experience."

It seems Cross isn't the only one who has beef with the film; reviewers showed their scorn for the sequel, combining to give it a measly 16% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Luckily, Cross has the second season of his IFC show, "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret," on the horizon.

"It is not your typical American sitcom," Cross says. "There is a story told that has a beginning, middle and end. Each episode takes place the very next day, and we start with Todd in the dock and then flashback to two weeks earlier. So we get to see how he got there and what's going to happen."
