Just in time for the holidays, Alvin and the Chipmunks is now in theaters! The cute, little chipmunks are back and ready to rock and roll as they have done for the past fifty years. A very funny and spectacular movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks will satisfy any viewer, big or small! The movie begins as our favorite chipmunks, Alvin, Simon and Theodore, are storing acorns, nuts and pine cones for the winter hibernation. They seem sad and angry, so when Alvin yells at the tree, it ‘collapses’, sending the chipmunks into the ruble. From the viewers standpoint, the tree is cut down by people and soon hauled onto a truck that transports it to the city. The tree is set up inside the building’s lobby and becomes a Christmas tree while Alvin, Simon and Theodore watch the festivities from inside it. Meanwhile, Dave Seville, who writes songs for a living, is nearly fired after his boss, Ian, complains that the song was ‘horrible’. As Dave leaves the lobby, the three chipmunks are making a escape also. Desperate to survive the lobby confusion, they hitch a ride in Dave’s basket of muffins as he walks out of the front door. Dave has no idea that the chipmunks have ridden home with until they knock him out. Dave sees this opportunity to write a new song about the chipmunks’ favorite holiday, Christmas. Though Ian, Dave’s boss, does not believe that the chipmunks can talk at first, he soon realizes that this could earn him some big money. He then records the chipmunks favorite song, ‘Christmas Don’t Be Late’ and while Dave is in the grocery store he hears the song public for the first time. The story continues as the chipmunks start performing at their concerts and getting public for the first time. Dave keeps restrictions for the chipmunks for what they can and cannot do and what and whatnot they can get. Ian believes that popstars and rockstars should always be treated with whatever they want. In the end of the argument, the chipmunks move in with Ian and Dave is left with his house and girlfriend. Ian starts the chipmunks on a year long world tour. The chipmunks realize that they probably shouldn’t have left Dave and are desperate to find him. At their last concert before leaving for Paris, the chipmunks plan an escape while dancing and signing on stage. Ian stops them right before they escape and puts them in a cat carrier. The end is very funny, so I will let you see for yourself! Personally, I thought this was one of the best motion picture movies in a while. Cars was good, but this was even better. Combining the real world with the animated made this movie shine. Even though you could tell the chipmunks were animated, they did a fantastic job of making the chipmunks and Dave blend together. I thought this movie was hilarious, though it just might have been the love for the chipmunks that made me giggle and laugh. Even if you are an adult, I HIGHLY RECOMEND this movie for its giggles and laughs, but also its moral and friendship. Alvin and the Chipmunks has been here for fifty years and will hopefully stay till one hundred!
