Alvin, Simon, and Theodore are back in director Tim Hill's computer-animation/live-action hybrid following the further adventures of the world's most adorable singing trio. Songwriter Dave Seville (Jason Lee) has been struggling to gain recognition in the music industry for some time, and despite the fact that his former college roommate (David Cross) is now a high-profile powerbroker at Jett Records, Dave still can't manage to get a break. Things soon start to look up, however, when Dave discovers three singing chipmunks hiding out in the branches of a Christmas tree in Jett Records' world headquarters. Realizing that these woodland crooners cold prove to be his ticket to the big time, Dave does his best to transform Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler), and Theodore (Jesse McCartney) into the next great pop sensation. As adorable and talented as they may be, though, these bouncy little critters aren't quite domesticated just yet; they still have a wild streak in them a mile wide, and it isn't long before Dave's life, home, and career are in utter chaos. But staying mad at such lovable little creatures is next to impossible, no matter what kind of mischief they might get into.

    This film teaches important lessons to children in a gentle and very entertaining way. Chip monks lessons learned are Discipline is important, Anything in excess, even fun, can ruin your life, being in the Spotlight may seem glamorous, can be harmful and stable family life is more important. Dads are important role models for young sons. Alvin and his companions Simon and Theodore learn these lessons from their surrogate father Dave and from the hard knocks they endure as they leave Dave and rise to recording stardom. Seldom have I seen such an entertaining film spell out such excellent values for young children.

    The chipmunks we all know and love causing chaos wherever they go! I've watched his movie daily with my one year old for at least two months (probably more) and I'm not sick of it yet! Great, modern, music with that old chipmunk flair. Great movie for adults and little ones. Best of all is that this set comes with a digital copy so I don't have to keep track of the disks themselves & worry about them being damaged but at the same time I can send them with my son when he stays with someone or my Internet is down!

    I RENTED THIS MOVIE FROM BLOCKBUSTER OVER THE WEEKEND AND I WAS ACTUALLY SHOCKED BECAUSE THE MOVIE WAS VERY GOOD. AS A CHILD I GREW UP ON ALVIN AND THE CHIMPMUNKS, I HAD CD COLLECTIONS AND TO FINALLY GET TO WITNESS IT IN REAL FILM WAS AMAZING. THIS MOVIE IS TRULY A FAMILY ORIENTED MOVIE, IT NEVER GETS BOARING AND ITS SOMETHING ADULTS CAN WATCH WITH THERE CHILDREN AND NOT FALL ASLEEP. I AM NOW GOING TO BUY THE MOVIE TO KEEP WATCHING OVER AND OVER AGAIN. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THIS MOVIE YOU NEED TO GO GET IT AND ADD IT TO THE MOVIE COLLECTION.

    Was shopping @ my local Best Buy and my son asked for the Alvin & the chipmunks movie and of course I said he can have it. How could I say no, when I was a child I remembered watching Alvin and the Chipmunks it brought back memories of when I was my sons age. It was a great movie to watch together. Highly recommend. Thanks Best Buy

    The best Chipmunk movie out of all the ones that have been made thus far in my opinion. It sets the mood for telling the audience who the chipmunks really are and that they are just as popular as they were years ago as they are today. A feel good movie to watch with the family especially around the holidays.

    Decent Family Flick

    My kids, 7 and 4, love this movie. They love the songs, and think the chipmunks are super cool. It's not a bad movie, if you can get past some of the completely unbelievable scenes (like Dave throwing away his entire recording equipment out into the yard). And although I like Jason Lee (am a big fan of My Name is Earl), I don't think he was the right choice at all for Dave. BUT, it's for kids...

    Growing up in the 80's when The Chipmunks first hit the scene I was a fan from the beginning. I saw this movie about 2 months ago and i am almost 30! I found myself loving it all over again. Laughing out loud, stuck to the screen, feeling sad when the Chipmunks had it bad and then i bought it. Seen it 5-6 times now. This movie just makes me feel good! It'll make you feel good too! Watch this!
