I was also grateful that Alvin wears a red sweater with a big 'A' on it as an aid to identification, since otherwise all the chipmunks seem to be identical, like Mutant Turtles or Spice Girls.

Kids at the preview screening ate it up but everyone else will probably be shouting 'ALVIN!!! SHUT THE F*** UP!'"

It becomes a little difficult to distinguish exploitive "Uncle Ian" from the folks trying very hard to keep this fragile idea alive and making money. The big difference is that Uncle Ian wears out the Chipmunks and this movie wears out its welcome.

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.

I guess we should count it a Christmas miracle that the film is merely bad, rather than apocalyptically bad.

There is a chance I have simply outgrown Alvin, Simon and Theodore. But I can still recognize a quality film and this isn't it.

Sure, the jokes are obvious, the plot's a little corny -- but c'mon, it's a movie about talking chipmunks.

preplanned pandering at its most callous.

Alvin isn't nearly as bad as Fox's marketing has been threatening, but it isn't a delight either...a glorified direct-to-video release.

It's not that bad. It's just kind of gross and upsetting.

Sure, rodents are hot this year. But unlike Ratatouille's chef prodigy Remy, these mischief makers bring nothing new to the table.

It's as if the capitalistic ventures of entertainment and the development of new technology have joined forces to ruin my childhood memories.

Filled with cheap slapstick, annoying high-pitched singing, and a variety of fart gags, all of which amused my daughter but not me.

Hollywood continues its tired milking of old television properties with Alvin and the Chipmunks, a slick updating of the musical-cartoon franchise.
