The Real ‘Chipmunks’ Movie

In 2007, the abomination that was Alvin and the Chipmunks was forced upon an already wearied world. I didn’t see this movie, but that didn’t stop me from resenting it. Why was Alvin wearing a hoodie with the hood pulled down too far in the posters? Why was this all Pixar-y instead of hand-drawn-animated-y? And why were the Chipettes singing Beyonce’s “Single Ladies?” I ask you…what could be worse than the Chipettes singing Beyonce’s “Single Ladies?” (For the alarming answer to this seemingly rhetorical question, click here.)

Besides, am I the only one who remembers that, as of 1987, we already had a Chipmunks movie?

And may I just say, The Chipmunks Movie has it all: musical numbers, world travel, hot-air balloons, fierce gendered competition, and sqeaky voices. What else does a Chipmunk movie need?

Plus, talk about educaitonal value. This movie taught me what cous-cous was.

Enjoy, and happy long weekend!
