Don't pay attention to the trolls or negative feedback. They've clearly have not seen the abysmal live action movies that are sadly invading are screens. This film on the other hand is far superior and entertaining. It deserves a go!
I remember really liking this as a child. The novelty did wear off a bit as I got older. Also, I noticed that this movie has an almost creepy amount of panty shots of the Chipettes. Ah, the 80's. Pretty average overall. The animation was sloppy and the songs didn't rock enough.
I've been told that I'm too critical of movies. "The Chipmunk Adventure" was the first movie I ever saw in my life, and it may be to blame for my overcritical nature as it spoiled me: I thought all movies were supposed to be this good. Little did I know at age 3, this movie just happened to be the gold standard. Re-watching this at age 29 (and a half) had me yearning for the long gone days when movies could get away with being politically incorrect. How refreshing.
This was an enjoyable Chipmunks movie that had everything you need from it. Chipmunks singing songs and goofy adventures. Realism be damned, why not let chipmunk children fly around the world in air balloons, right. The animation was excellent, definitely the highlight.
The Chimpunk Adventure is a movie that I can barely remember from my childhood. At the time, there was a resurgence of popularity for the Chipmunks, whose TV series and album sales were doing well at the time; a movie probably wasn't a bad idea. Unfortunately, I haven't seen it in years and I can't fully commit to how I really feel about it today as an adult. I enjoyed it as a kid, but I also didn't have any kind of taste in those days. I just watched everything that was on TV. So I'm going to give it two stars for now, simply for nostalgia and rememberance. Perhaps I'll see it again someday and have a more concrete opinion.
This is a great film from my youth! It still is entertaining and appears to have stood the test of time. Nancy Cartwright is the voice of the Arabian Prince and if you close your eyes you can hear little Bart Simpson starting to form, which happened a couple years later. I give this film a B+.
