Love this movie and so do my kids.

Love this movie and so do my kids. This was my son's first favorite, as a toddler he would pick this show over and over... Right from the beginning\introduction, with the intro music\sound, it catches the eyes of toddlers right away.

Cute movie

I got my son onto Alvinand the Chipmunks through listening to LPs. He loves their songs so I thought I would let him watch these movies. I was impressed that he liked them since they are live action movies and not cartoons.

I recall my two youngest falling in love with these smart-aleck fuzzballs when they were children, in the 60's. I had purchased an LP (remember those?) of "Alvin and the Chipmunks" for them to listen to, and they practically wore it out! All these years later, comes this film, of the Fuzzy Rodentia that entertained them! I had never seen the cartoon, so the film is my introduction to them.

Kids would have a blast with this film! It's combination of Animation and live action was done well, and the Chipmunks received an updating, to appeal to our modern youngsters. I realize the difficulties when meshing live action, to animation, and I give credit to Jason Lee, for his part in this film.

I found a couple of situations in the film to be a bit over some children's heads, but nothing to take away from them enjoying this film. Some have found the "updating" of the Chipmunks' songs, misguided, or otherwise objectionable. I did not see this. The lyrics are the same, no?

I wonder if Ross Bagdasarian had given thought to the longevity his creation would ultimately achieve? I'm personally glad that he brought his mischievous carpet bumps to such vivid life! Alvin, Simon and Theodore. May they live on for future generations to come!

There is a history of the Chipmunks, as well as a music featurette, in the Special Features. I found the history of the Chipmunks to be informative, as well as entertaining.

Product is as expected.

I somehow did not see that it was only a blu ray when purchasing. We don't have a blu ray player yet, but the disc and case were perfect and new.

Silly movie
Verified purchase
Fun for the family. It is pretty silly and does not have meaty content as expected for the movie about talking chipmunks.

who knew - my mom LOVES the chipmunks!! (how cute is that?) i bought her all three movies for mother's day this year and she was thrilled! my dad joined me and mom for a chipmunks marathon - and we giggled for hours!! these movies are fun for any age - and having grown up watching the original...i have to say - i love the new movies even more!! as a kid - i found the chipmunks annoying and wasn't a real big fan...until now! if you have kids and don't have the new chipmunks in your dvd collection - you're missing out on the adorable fun!! :D
