What to know

critics consensus

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

Audience Reviews for Alvin and the Chipmunks

  • Dec 18, 2015
    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.
