Alvin and the Chipmunks, I am one of an extreme few to dislike the whole series. I will be honest and say it is not a bad series, and the films got better as the went along; the second improved on the first and the third improved on the second. But I do not take to it as much as other do.
The series starts with Alvin and the Chipmunks. The movie introduces us to the characters. The main ones are a man named Dave and of cores, the three talking and singing chipmunks, Alvin, Simon and Theodore. The film is somewhat good and features a decent plot. Also felt that the acting was good. However, the film is prevent from good praise due to it's tedious humour and poor pacing. Sometimes the film had cringeworthy momments and it very forgettable. 6/10 ***
Then came Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. This movie did not receive very good reviews from professional critics, I personally thought it stronger than the first, but still only mediocre. It has introduction to more main characters. In the first there were singing chipmunks, and here there are the singing chipmunks and singing female chipmunks. The film, again, has a decent and enjoyable plot, but has very tedious humour. The film also suffers from predictable events. It could be much better, but still OK nonetheless. 6.5/10 ***
Alvin and the Chipmuncks: Chipwrecked. Whilst it is the best of the 3, it is still mediocre at the very best. The storyline this time has Dave on cruse, and the Chipmunks and Chipettes having to much fun and getting washed up on a isolated island. Later joined by Dave and Ian, they must find a way to get back for them to preform at the international music awards. This is no doubt the most enjoyable and has less tedious humour. However, there is yet again, cringeworthy moments and predictable events. 7/10 ***
Overall, I have enjoyed the 3-film series, but it is over rated in my opinion.
