Alvin and the Chipmunks

Critics Consensus

Though cutely rendered, Alvin and the Chipmunks suffers from bland potty humor and a rehashed kids' movie formula.

  • It's one of those movies where the wretched actors have to pretend to know what's going on as the CG effects take place beside and around them. They do their best. But it's Alvin and co that toddlers will appreciate.

  • An endearing effort that will appeal to under-10s with its slight tale of the three all-talking, all-singing rodents.

  • Pure hell.

  • Is it for kids? Adults? Marsupials? Martians? Who can tell. Jason Lee from My Name Is Earl stars - if that is the word - in this thoroughly brain-dead semi-animated family comedy.

  • It's the kind of family entertainment that makes you reach for the shotgun.

  • The musical numbers are initially appealing - think close harmonies and smart foot stepping to the likes of 'Funkytown' - but the novelty is likely to wear thin for adults when the 'munks get kitted out as a street boy band.

Audience Reviews for Alvin and the Chipmunks

    I normally have to put on my 'agreed' glasses on this one. Even though it's like way better than the sequels, it still suffers from them being this point where you can't have an Alvin and the Chipmunks movie without the annoying Chipmunks singing throughout the majority of the movie and then suddenly the "ALVIN!" moment coming around a point where Alvin does something wrong that Dave can't handle anymore.

    A CGI-charm but a slacking curse. Alvin and the Chipmunks is a treat for kids but as a film does nothing but provided simplistic humor and cute spark. 2/5

    Too much kiddish toilet humor, bland pop culture references, and obviously annoying voice acting as any smart person would expect. Cute? That's way beyond me.

    Made for kids, literally. Cliche and boring, made no sense at all.
