Actually I think I might want to watch the Tinker Bell movie.  Don’t judge me.

Oh, and the Perfectly Reasonably Explanation, as promised: apparently these recommendations are based on actors, and Chernobyl Diaries has a boy band member / Disney voice actor as part of its cast.  It’s still a pretty big leap from killer mutants to Alvin and the Chipm… actually, never mind, that one kind of makes sense too.
