Even if this isn't the worst movie of this year, is probably the best example of "the evil side of Hollywood. Not only does it have no reason to exist, it seems that it doesn't even have an actual plot... just like the 2nd ALVIN.  

Now, the new additions to this are Alan Tudyk and Jenny Slate (she dropped the F-bomb during her first episode on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, and got fired by the end of the season). Like it matters.

As for potential contenders, Tudyk was also in TRANSFORMERS 3. And THE CHIPPETES are voiced by Christina Applegate (HALL PASS), Anna Faris (TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT and WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER?) and Amy Poehler (HOODWINKED 2). But maybe Jason Lee and David Cross will do it. As for Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler and Jesse McCartney, maybe they can be up for Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble. If that happens, will they be nominated together or them + THE CHIPPETES?

Probably with the Chipettes. Worst Ensemble Cast is supposed to cover as much of the cast as possible.
 
As for my take, the RAZZIES need to get their act together and nominate this franchise! I'd prefer Worst Prequel or Sequel. I can't stand the fact that the RAZZIES let the Chipmunks evade nominations not once but twice! All because the 5 Worst Picture finalists for 2009 swept the nominations and left almost no room for variety, anything else, or... this franchise! I hate the Chipmunks francise sooooo much, and think the original show was WAY overrated, and the movies NEED a RAZZIE badly!
 
...say, my intuition tells me that all nominations the Chipmunks franchise could receive are taken from under its nose because the same 3 Decembers in which these films were released were the same years as the Transformers films were released around Half Year's. I just fail to understand exactly why this franchise is the lesser of two evils compared to Bayformers.

HeadRAZZ edited my post. I meant that if they were to be nominated for Worst Couple only, would that include just THE CHIPMUNKS or THE CHIPPETES too?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: We no longer have a category for just Worst Screen Couple -- As of last year, it was re-named Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble...

BurnHollywoodBurn and others campaigned for Worst Ensemble cast precisely because they wanted to get rid of triples, quartets, and character medleys. Alvin, Simon, and Theodore are a screen triple, so they don't qualify for Worst Couple alone. It would have to be with the Chipettes as 3 couples in 1 nomination...if they could even nominate any characters in this movie as a couple. It probably won't. In practice, this film only qualifies for that category as an Ensemble.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: My point exactly...sort of.

Yeah, but can't it still be split?

According to David Cross, this was "the most unpleasant experience" of his career. Apparantly, it wasn't the actors or the director, but someone he didn't mention. Link: http://www.avclub.com/articles/david-cross-calls-alvin-and-the-chipmunks-chipwrec,66562/

Didn't Cross also say that about the first movie? So why does he keep coming back? And why are the film-makers letting him?

Critics can bitch, moan and whine all they like, but that doesn't change the fact that this is very likely to be a hit at the box office -- especially with the Christmas Season coming up. 

Anyway, I noticed that Headrazzberry mentioned that if this film were to get any Razzie Nominations, they might stop making more. But if that were really the case, then they wouldn't have gone ahead and done a third Transformers Film. 

Also no offense but Critics have no impact on a Children's film's box office -- nothing.

Based on the reviews Alvin 3 is getting, I think it may not be a bad idea to add Justin Long and/or Jason Lee to the Worst Actor list.

Judging by the slaughtering this film is getting from the critics, 'Alvin 3' is now, as of this post, the movie equivalent of roadkill...

You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

Perhaps it would be appropriate to offer a Worst Screen Couple/Screen Ensemble nomination for Ross Bagdasarian (creator of the horror now known as Alvin and the Chipmunks) and his son Ross Bagdasarian Jr. who is now perpetuating this evil upon another generation. Granted that neither of them actually appear on the screen, but the character of David Seville is really Bagdasarian Sr.'s alter ego and the chipmunks themselves are the evil incarnate of the father/son duo. Time to give credit where it is sorely overdue.

The previous 2 movies got 20 something % in R.T., and this one got 10-15%: "Lazy, rote, and grating, this film is lowest-common-denominator family entertainment that's strictly for the very, very, very young at heart".

Isn't Bagdasarian Sr. dead?

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but the director of this movie also directed TWO (that's right, TWO) movies that were nominated for Worst Picture (Surviving Christmas and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo) Yet somehow, this guy did not get a Worst Director nod for either of them. I think that is really surprising.
Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

You mean the international success known as the Chipmunks (yeah, whine all you want). Also that being more evil than the things you listed -- Have you no respect for the dead?  

You may not like the Chipmunks (or critics for that matter), but that doesn't mean everyone else agrees with you!
