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 youd expect, but theres still plenty of fun to be had anyway.
For Alvin and the Chipmunks has plenty in its corner. Its funny, first and foremost, and moves along at a good pace, never forgetting that its prime job is to entertain its audience. And thats 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, its perhaps not a surprise after all that the film enjoyed the success it did. But whats pleasing is that the spirit of the source material, in spite of its contemporary setting, is adhered to, and theres fun for all in the end product. --Jon Foster
