From Amazon.co.uk

A staggering surprise success at the box office just before Christmas 2007, the reason for the popularity of Alvin and the Chipmunks soon becomes clear. Not only is it a new adventure for a popular set of characters of old, it’s also a fun, breezy family movie, that the kids in particular will enjoy.

Starring Jason Lee (of My Name Is Earl fame), Alvin and the Chipmunks mixes in live action and CGI chipmunks (Alvin, Simon and Theodore) in a story that sees that moved from their natural habitat into the midst of the big city. The plot then becomes as predictable as you’d expect, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had anyway.

For Alvin and the Chipmunks has plenty in its corner. It’s funny, first and foremost, and moves along at a good pace, never forgetting that its prime job is to entertain its audience. And that’s something it easily manages to do, wrapping everything up by remembering not to outstay its welcome, either.

Considering that Alvin and the Chipmunks enjoy a legion of fans that stretch back decades, it’s perhaps not a surprise after all that the film enjoyed the success it did. But what’s pleasing is that the spirit of the source material, in spite of its contemporary setting, is adhered to, and there’s fun for all in the end product. --Jon Foster

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic fun for kids AND adults 4 Nov 2009
By Best Crime Books TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Chipmunks have been around for as long as I can remember and I have vague recollections of them being on TV when I was younger. However, I never really paid them that much attention and wasn't a particular `Chipmunk' fan. It was a case of coming across this film by accident as opposed to knowing about it. Not having any young kids I wasn't aware of the Chipmunk Fever that my friends now inform me was going on.

The film was released in 2007 and I discovered it whilst on a tediously long plane journey where the options were quite limited. After hearing the hubby's giggles after 10 minutes viewing I decided to give it a go. Secretly I am thrilled that I watched it as I fell in love with this film from the get go and am glad I watched it before deciding to buy the DVD too.

Now let me clarify I am in my thirties so by no means in the targeted audience range. This film that crosses your standard movie with animation is a U certificate and aimed at the younger audience but don't let that deter you!

This film features Dave Sewell (Jason Lee) who is a struggling musician. He comes upon the Chipmunks, Alvin, Simon and Theodore by coincidence as the tree they were living in was chopped down. The three boys (as I will call them) basically plot themselves up in Dave's house and subsequently wreck the place. First off Dave is shocked and in disbelief that these three Chipmunks have not only made themselves at home but they can talk. After getting over the initial shock Dave threatens to kick them out, but when he hears they can sing he decides to let them stay. On one condition! They sing one the songs he has written for them and they present these songs to Dave's friend Ian (played by David Cross) who owns Jet records.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and guaranteed a laugh 19 May 2008
Format:DVD
Hilarious real-life CGI induced comedy! The opening scene had me in fits of laughter with chipmunk rendition of Daniel Powter's "Bad Day".

This comedy family film sees Alvin, Simon and Theodore get unexpectedly relocated from their forest home to the big city. They're taken in by Dave (Jason Lee) - a struggling advertiser with an ambition to write music. His encouter with the cute, mischievous squirrel like creatures leads Dave to find out their musical abilities and promotes their music career which explodes into a world wide phenomena.

The SFX scenes are clever - similar to the real-life Garfield movies, with some really good rib tickler jokes. The music is top rate especially with the chipmunk voices singing and dancing - and like Toy Story, there's some adult related jokes hidden in there that children would miss.

Great fun and guaranteed a laugh - just don't take it seriously....as if you would with singing and talking chipmunks.
