Movie Review: Alvin and the Chipmunks


Featuring: Jason Lee, Justin Long, David Cross

Genre: comedy, animation

Plot: looser gets to raise a family of chipmunks rock stars

Acting: the chipmunks are a hoot

Drama: celebrity, money and fame… ah…

Action: making toast in the kitchen… hell, anything to do with the kitchen

Funny: first half is hilarious

Visuals: the chipmunks are so cute… they must have borrowed the prints, I mean virtual models, from Enchanted

Soundtrack: laughable

Official website:

Comments: It started promising but then it just went… bleah… so common and predictable. I gotta say Jason Lee was funnier in Heartbreakers. Here he’s just… lame… The chipmunks are funny and there are some gags well done but the human ruins it all… the guys from Joe’s Apartment handled the situation much better.

Rating: 3/5
