Goofs

During the end of the "Rock and Roll" song the Chipettes are holding on to the ropes of the basket when they are dancing and they look just wide enough to fit in the amount of space between each rope. Then when they are dancing and not holding onto the ropes they look significantly smaller and appear that they would not be able to hold onto the ropes. See more »

A longtime favorite
5 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

I've loved this movie for a LONG time. I hadn't seen it in a while, so I again checked it out and actually found it even more enjoyable now. I loved the Chipmunks cartoon when I was young, so naturally I adored 'The Chipmunk Adventure.'

I honestly can't think of a better plot to this movie. It's not wildly creative, but I've always wanted to travel all over the world, and so I just have so much fun watching it as my longing to travel grows even more. The part with Elenore singing to the little penguin always makes me cry...

'The Chipmunk Adventure' will remain a favorite of mine forever, I'm sure. I guess it's because I saw it when I was so young. I don't think it would make quite an impact on someone older seeing it for the first time. (Unless, of course, they have a young heart)
