Trivia

The soundtrack of the film contains an unused song that was not used in the movie called 'Flying with the Eagles'. Also worthy of noting is that the soundtrack versions of the songs 'Weekend in France, Italy, England, Amsterdam, Greece...', 'Mexican Holiday' and 'Diamond Dolls' are played much different when compared to their film versions.

Goofs

Throughout the movie we really only see the inside of the Chipettes balloon basket. Various times the Chipettes look too short for their heads to reach over the tops of the basket's sides, such as when they first get in the basket at the beginning of the race, and sometimes they seem to be tall enough that their heads reach over the tops, such as when they are looking for the boys after they discover the doll full of diamonds.

Extraordinarilly delightful!
16 June 2006 | by EarthwormJimFanSee all my reviews

One of my absolute favorite childhood films. The Chipmunk adventure packs incredible fun geared for young and old alike. The animation is lively and colorful and the film itself boasts some of the best songs ever put in an animated feature. Who could forget the dynamic "Boys/Girls of Rock n' Roll", the exciting "Diamond Dolls", and the heartrending "My Mother"?

This should be considered a nostalgic classic animated gem from the eighties. It's too bad they don't make them like this anymore. Most animated films today resort to violence, crude humor, or sentimental mush... except of course the folks from Pixar.

BOTTOM LINE: An amazing and unforgettable adventure for all ages.
