If you want a family film that only appeals to the lowest common denominator, here you go.
16 September 2017 | by tlmylmSee all my reviews

I'm by no means a fan of the ''Alvin and the Chipmunks'' film, I didn't really hate the first film, but I really hated the second film, and the third film was bad, too. So I wasn't excited at all when I heard a 4th film was coming out, and after watching it, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT THAT THIS FILM IS THE WORST IN THE SERIES.

Let's start with the story. It's bland, predictable, and just awful, like the other films in the series, which all had terrible stories, but this film has the worst of them all.

Then there's the writing, which is also abysmal, too. It focuses too much on unfunny humor(which I will talk about later), and cringe worthy pop culture references, too, which is NOT GOOD. Really.

And then there's the humor, and wow, it's filled to the brim with potty humor, which makes it VERY UNFUNNY. It also doesn't help that the chipmunks are back, too. Yeah, they are annoying, like always, but this film easily shows them AT THEIR WORST. Yeah, the Chipettes do return in this film as well, but they have very little screen time, and that actually might be a good thing. CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO HEAR THESE HIGH PITCHED VOICES OVER AND OVER AGAIN! And the less I say about the musical numbers(which are just really bad chipmunk versions of modern day pop songs), THE BETTER! I'm not saying much for the acting, because by the time we get to the 4th film, you can already tell how bland it is.

The only good thing about the film are the CGI effects, which are now done by the masters at Weta Digital. Yeah, the chipmunks still look like they're in the uncanny valley, but I think the effects and animation look seamless and very well done. It's just too bad they have annoying characters to work with.

Wow. I can't believe how abysmal this film is. Aside from the CGI effects, everything about this film is very shoddy in their own level. Please. Save your time and money and DO NOT SEE THIS FILM.

And to end this review, I'm going to end with what Jason Lee(as Dave) says at each and every film. ''ALVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'' (To be honest, this film really deserves a 0.5/10, but the lowest IMDb can give is a 1/10. So there.)
