I've been putting this off for a while. Time to jump into the annoyingly voiced, poorly CGI'd mess that is Alvin And The Chipmunks! But first, I've added a movie to next month: Friday The 13th V! It's boring, cliched, has non existant gore and, worst of all, no Jason!
 
The good:
 
David Cross: He's clearly aware of how terrible the movie's in. He's basically admitted it in an interview.
 
The bad:
 
Jason Lee: Seriously, why was he in this? I know that his character is important to the cartoon, but does anyone (little kids in particular) give two sh*ts about this guy? He could have been trimmed-out and noone would have minded! Oh, and his acting sucks!
 
The script: This script is formulaic and bland. It makes Friday The 13th V look like a Billy Wilder script!!
 
The ugly:
 
The voice-acting: Seriously, what was the point of hiring (mildly) well-known actors (Justin Long, Jesse McCartney, and Criminal Mind's Matthew Gray Gubler) when they all sound the same?
 
The CGI: This is some Carnosaur sh*t right here! The effects are poor and kinda creepy. Especially when...
 
They eat crap!: You all knew that this was gonna be on here! This scene in the trailer set a sign to all viewers what kind of movie that they were gonna be watching. And yet, it grossed over $200 million dollars! It grossed more than 300!! I have a strong feeling that every single person on here would watch 300 300 times than watch Alvin once!
 
Well, that's the review. As mentioned in the ugly, this made a lot of money. So much, that a sequel was made! Grade: C-
 
Next-up: Alvin And The Chipmunks 2!

Still too high.

For some up-tight parents, ONE is one too many.

Ah, wasn't there a scene in which David ate one of the chipmucks' s***? I know there's was some kind of scene that had to do with s***, which is not G-rated material, my opinion.

I just saw this crap on DVD...it's every bit as bad as you would think. The "jokes" are mostly groan-inducing!

I take it you thought it would be an action-packed thrill ride. Personally, I thought it worked best as a drama, showing Will Smith go insane. Also, didn't the vampire/mutant/zombie that really hated Will Smith look like Michael Berryman from "The Hills Have Eyes"?

Well done Chipmunks! I watched the shows as a kid, and listened to their Christmas album. Didn't see the movie, though a lot of other (apparently nostalgic) people did!

I was also surprised about The Chipunks doing as well as it did. I thought it would do the same amount as Fat Albert did 3 years ago. And I Am Legend did $76.5 million...

This made over $45 million over the weekend! I'm so surprised! Also, I Am Legend made about $72 million or something like that. That film was really underwhelming but still satisfying to recommend it. I know Will Smith is a box office grabber but I can't think people would actually see a movie with one person in it...

Netflix has it.
