Synopsis: Three lively singing chipmunk brothers, Alvin - the unchained leader, Simon - the genius, and the tender rotund Theodore are living their lives in the forest storing nuts away for the winter when one day their tree is cut down and carried off into the city to become a Christmas tree. They must find a new home and they end up at Daves house. The only thing that makes them different is that they can talk and even sing. Dave Seville (Jason Lee) is a struggling song writer who has a great idea about making the chipmunks a new show act, singing his songs. The only thing is that you must remember is that they are chipmunks and they act like chipmunks by tearing up Daves house and interrupting his love life. David will adopt the Chipmunks taking care of them as lovely father and manager of their famous rock band. The chipmunks become a big hit and superstars with cute voices and fancy dance moves. The record company executive Ian (David Cross) sees big money in his future and takes over the act and pushes Dave to the side. Dave must try to save his little family before they becomes a show biz disaster.

Review: I went to Alvin and the Chipmunks on New Year’s Day with my 11 year old son. I expected to be in for a really Cheesy show. The story opened in the forest where A & TC were in a tree having a conversation. It was a fir tree on a tree farm. The tree was chopped down, and A & TC were engaging in some talkative behaviour as to what was happening (akin to the chipmunks in the Warner brothers cartoon). The tree and they were slapped on a truck destined for the city. The tree was set up at an office building. They soon scampered away and ended up breaking into David Seville’s house foraging for food. I have to admit that actor David Lee did a great job of interacting with the CGI munks. It was done really well, and within 15 minutes, I was hooked – hooked on feelings that churned up inside me from the past Christmas’s of my youth, where I would listen to A & TC sing The Hula-Hoop song. It even, I am not ashamed to say… brought a tear to my eye. My son loved the movie and I , well… am a little embarrassed to say.. I liked it too. Even if it was a little cheesy – can’t we all do with a wee bit more cheese in our life? I think so. A great diversion from reality!

The group became star sensations and even started touring! Rock on Alvin! (oh and Theodore and Simon as well!) 2 thumbs up!
