Pretty standard direct-to-video fare
30 March 2008 | by shbombSee all my reviews

To start off, this is a children's film, and that being said, I was probably already getting too old for it the first time I saw it. Of course as a longtime fan of the Chipmunks, I still enjoyed it for the lighthearted script, clever dialogue and cute, dynamic characters that always made the Chipmunks a great cartoon series. My major complaint, however, is that this movie feels exactly like what it is: a lowish-budget direct-to-video deal.

To elaborate: The whole monster-movie parody idea was, in my opinion, a strange and unnatural direction to take this series, and it feels more like a gimmick than anything else. Plot-wise, the film's weakest point is probably its climax, which is obviously a shame. Last but not least, the music. You just can't have a decent Chipmunk movie without great, memorable songs, and on that point this film doesn't quite pass the test, as I found the songs generic, uninspired and repetitive... exactly what you'd expect in a cheaply made derivative work that tries (but never quite succeeds) to recapture the spirit of something older and better.

Overall, if I had to compare this movie to something, I'd say it's about equal to an episode of the '80s Chipmunks TV series stretched to movie-length with updated animation... in other words it's okay, but not great. If you're looking to see the classic cartoon Chipmunks (and Chipettes) in their prime, I recommend giving this a miss and watching 1987's The Chipmunk Adventure, which was a full theatrical release with excellent production values and a great original story.
