The under-10s will doubtless succumb to the stuffed-toy cuteness of Alvin (the leader), Simon (the brainy one) and Theodore (the fat, needy one) as they invade the life of loser songwriter Jason Lee. But anyone older, will quickly tire of a pencil-thin plot that leaves Lee looking bemused (read: semi-comatose) when the ‘Munks parlay the success of their first festive hit into crass corporate whore-dom (ahem…)...

Unfortunately, as rendered here by the average-looking CGI effects, the characters are underwhelming in their appeal, lacking the charm of their previous animated incarnations....

At times funny, and even occasionally witty, Alvin and the Chipmunks is a lively, entertaining romp that will certainly bring smiles to the young ones this holiday season....

There is sweetness here. The scene in which Dave and the boys decorate the tree is charming, and the Chipmunks' excited presentation of gifts to their human dad is actually sort of touching. And dang it, the little animated rodents are cute...

Fun musical numbers and cartoonish humour give way to a bland sermon about the evils of the music industry...

saw this for the second time and my kids and their friends laughed alot. Jason Lee was good and different from My Name is Earl series. Music and music industry stuff was clear and I liked how Jason Lee wanted the chipmunks to be/stay kids

I thought this movie was a real family one. It has very cute chipmunks and they are just making a mess anywhere, anytime! I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a giggle and a awww!

I thought the movie was average. Mainly because us Kiwis can't relate to chipmunks. Then there is the issue of not being able to understand the chipmunks' speech. On reflection it did not matter that much as most of the film was slapstick. The warm fuzzies certainly couldn't beat Puss n Boots hat in hand and weepy eyed from Shrek.
