Becky and I took the kids to see Alvin and the Chipmunks at the AMC theater on Pleasure Island in Disney World, Florida on Christmas night before we left Disney World for Colorado. The MSN movie website at Alvin and the Chipmunks describes the movie as follows:
“Alvin, Simon, and Theodore are back in director Tim Hill’s computer-animation/live-action hybrid following the further adventures of the world’s most adorable singing trio. Songwriter Dave Seville (Jason Lee) has been struggling to gain recognition in the music industry for some time, and despite the fact that his former college roommate (David Cross) is now a high-profile powerbroker at Jett Records, Dave still can’t manage to get a break. Things soon start to look up, however, when Dave discovers three singing chipmunks hiding out in the branches of a Christmas tree in Jett Records’ world headquarters. Realizing that these woodland crooners cold prove to be his ticket to the big time, Dave does his best to transform Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler), and Theodore (Jesse McCartney) into the next great pop sensation. As adorable and talented as they may be though, these bouncy little critters aren’t quite domesticated just yet; they still have a wild streak in them a mile wide, and it isn’t long before Dave’s life, home, and career are in utter chaos. But staying mad at such lovable little creatures is next to impossible, no matter what kind of mischief they might get into. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide”
Alvin and the Chipmunks is a movie made from the famous Alvin and the Chipmunks songs we used to listen to as kids. The animated characters were really cute and the story was fun and funny at times.
The movie was sold out with a crying baby that I think the parents left in our theater and went to a different movie, or at least it seemed that way since they never took them out – ever. That didn’t help the movie at all, since there were times we couldn’t hear some of the dialogue during the film. The acting was something to be desired though especially by the lead actor. The co-star was actually more believable as a villain than the main character, but the kids loved it so it didn’t really matter.
Becky and I would rate it as a Rental, but since all of our kids rated it as a Don’t Miss It, if you have kids you’re going to want to take them to this one during this Holiday season.
