Alvin and the Chipmunks was an okay live-action update on ’50s cartoon characters
After a month of purposely deciding NOT to watch this movie, I finally decided to humor my friend and see this update on Ross Bagdasarian, Snr.’s, creations from fifty years ago. There were pretty funny scenes when they surprised Dave in the beginning and a hilarious one when their manager, Ian (David Cross), gave each of them a caffeinated iced drink to give them energy. Other than that, this was a mostly by-the-numbers story of the pressures of success and the toll it takes on your health. In fact, the climatic scene when the rodent music group is revealed to be lip-syncing to their own vocals (because of their now-hoarse voices) seems aimed at those who go for such acts like Britney Spears and Ashlee Simpson instead of real musicians who play genuine music (though I don’t consider what David Seville-Jason Lee-had auditioned initially for Ian authentic either). It’s obvious that Lee (“My Name Is Earl”) and Cross (“Arrested Development”) took these roles for a large paycheck though Lee, at least, grows on you after a while. The music performances of the Chipmunks themselves are variable depending on whether you like any of the songs they sing here or the way their voices completely dominate though I admit liking their performance of “Only You”, “Funkytown”, and, of course, “The Chipmunk Song”, and even the updated version of “Witch Doctor” (though I prefer the original recordings). Not bad for a reboot though for my money, I think I’d love to see the original version for television from the ’50s, “The Alvin Show”. P.S. What a treat to see the original album covers of The Chipmunks over the years during the end credits.
Not too bad
Alvin and the chipmunks. I guess just about anyone that has ever watched television cartoons knows them. Right before their 50th birthday they make another appearance, this time on the cinema screen in a film that just like Garfield (2004) combines live actors and computer graphics. The story of the film is no new one: a guy becomes the more or less unwilling host to the chipmunks as their tree is demolished and together they roll from one adventure into the other.
For the rest there is not much to tell about this film. It is worked out well enough and most kids will enjoy it. I know the one I watched it with did. It isn’t half bad for the adults either. Graphics have been done well enough and the actors work with it well enough to make a nicely working film. Storyline is rather straightforward and very predictable, but not really to the point of being irritating.
All in all, typical children’s film that works out well enough for the younger audience and that doesn’t put the parents to sleep right from the start 6 out of 10 chipmunks singing
