Alvin and the Chipmunks is neither entertaining or insightful. It is badly written, badly casted, and badly acted out. Kid's movies don't get much worse than this. Why has it sold so well since it's DVD release, even when review scores have been so low? Who knows. I guess some people find the presence of talking chipmunks more than enough compensation; namely parents who can't tell a good movie from a bad one, or simply don't give a care.
Pros: Talking chipmunks?
Cons: Shamelessly constructed out of terribly executed cliches. Really, super predictable. Not much of a point(except for the talking chipmunks).
