The Chipmunks have seen better days
17 June 2008 | by shbombSee all my reviews

I am normally a fan of Alvin & the Chipmunks, but the Universal direct-to-video movies (this and also "...Meet the Wolfman") are not high points in their career, and this one is surely the worse of the two. To be fair I haven't actually seen the whole thing... I started watching it on TV a while ago, but lost interest at a certain point and stopped. No other Chipmunk film has ever lost me that completely, not even the 2007 live action movie, of which I'm not a fan.

Plain and simply this one is boring, gimmicky, not particularly funny and contains no memorable music. Right from the beginning I had a bad impression, because Alvin and his brothers don't even appear until about 10 minutes into the film, which to me was an indication that more focus was being put on the clichéd Halloween-related elements of the story than on the Chipmunks themselves. The film suffers from poor writing and was just a bad concept overall.

A&TC Meet the Wolfman, another similar film released a year later, is slightly more enjoyable, but neither of them are the Chipmunks at their best. It will be unfortunate if these films are the last appearance of these memorable characters in traditional cartoon form.
