About the Movie

When down-on-his luck musician Dave Seville (Jason Lee) discovers singing trio Alvin and the Chipmunks, he seizes the opportunity to put together his songwriting skills with the ‘Munks unique talents. Their first collaboration, “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)” becomes an overnight sensation, propelling the Chipmunks to superstardom. But when Dave’s friend, greedy record executive Ian, gets a hold of the lovable rodent pals, will they fall into Ian’s corrupt landscape of global contemporary pop music or find their way back to Dave?

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Hollywood continues its tired milking of old television properties with Alvin and the Chipmunks, a slick updating of the musical-cartoon franchise. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Sure, rodents are hot this year. But unlike Ratatouille's chef prodigy Remy, these mischief makers bring nothing new to the table. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 18, 2008

Rotten: Alvin and the Chipmunks goes in one eye and out the other, featuring a CGI Alvin, Simon and Theodore interacting with a human-ish world. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Oct 18, 2008

Rotten: Between the occasional amusing joke and catchy musical number, this Alvin update is a very soulless movie. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2008

this is AWESOME!!! geniuses

This movie is worth watching!!!!

Watch this movie, it's funny! I love it when the chipmunks sing all their songs! Theodore is the funniest, but Alvin and Simon are good too. This seems like a little kid movie, but it's a good family movie.

A good family film

not the greatest movie ever but it is a really good film and really funny
