Alvin and the Chipmunks is a cute movie that the entire family can enjoy. I've had my copy for about a year now, and I remember the first time I played it I had just lost my dachshund and needed something to cheer me up. It certainly helped.
Dave Seville (played by Jason Lee) is a struggling songwriter and his whole life changes when he crosses paths with three singing chipmunks. What transpires after that is a lot of fun and mayhem. The movie is approximately 91 minutes long, the quality of the video and audio, I feel, is great. I love how they took the animation of the chipmunks and wove it into the movie with real people and places. The movie is rated PG for some mild rude humor.
There are some special features on this DVD as well, two short featurettes and a sneak peek of Horton Hears A Who.
All in all, I enjoyed the movie (I'm a big kid at heart) and I think the young ones would enjoy it as well. With Christmas right around the corner, this would be a great movie for a stocking stuffer.
