Alvin and the Chipmunks
Released by: 20th Century Fox
"Alvin and the Chipmunks" is a film about a man who adapts 3 singing squirrels.
Intended for children, this is generally a "feel-good" movie. Though extremely lacking in a sensible script, they are enjoyable to watch and made for entertainment using digital technology. At long last, the classic characters "Alvin, Theodore, and Simon" were brought to life; their presence brings a lot of good memories, and they recall to mind the vivaciousness of Alvin and the unique altered voices of the trio whose albums, including one produced for Christmas, were instant hits.
The character "Alvin" might not be too appropriate for children for he simulates "Dennis, the Menace", but generally, the film can inspire families to appreciate what it means to be one, including parenthood and the gift of children. Beyond all successes, the basic realities of love and family are still the most treasured gifts of all.
