Alvin and the Chipmunks

Theatrical Release: December 14, 2007
DVD Release: April 1, 2008


“Alvin and the Chipmunks,” a global phenomenon to generations of fans, becomes a live action/CGI motion picture event with a contemporary comic sensibility. Songwriter Dave Seville transforms singing chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Theodore into pop sensations–while the out-of-control-trio lays waste to Dave’s home, wreaks havoc with his career, and turns Dave’s once-orderly life upside-down.

Dove Review

Family members from 3 to 93 will enjoy the delightful comeback of the cute and lovable Chipmunks. Having grown up with the original group, we loved this movie which has added a sense of reality to our tiny friends. Our beloved Chipmunks are now computer generated characters and the animators have done a fantastic job bringing Alvin, Simon and Theodore to life. Half-way through the movie you may even begin to actually believe they are real. The portrayal of Dave Seville by Jason Lee will have everyone in the family smiling and laughing as they watch him grow up while trying to keep his young charges out of trouble in this uplifting family movie.

While the antics of the Chipmunks are worth the ticket price, you will be even more pleased by the music. All of the old favorite songs have been brought back with a slightly more modern fare that will have your children singing as they leave the theater. Dove is please to award “Alvin and the Chipmunks” our “Family-Approved” Seal and we hope you will relive your youth with these cute and adorable fuzzy friends.
