What Sucks...Alvin And The Chipmonks, Although I’ll Never See It
NOTE: I have not, nor will I ever see this movie.
There are two things I am sure of right now, one- this movie sucks, and two- I will never see it. Holy Zack Braff what a piece of garbage this thing is.
Why make it? I mean when you see a poster for “Alvin and the Chipmunks”, do you look to your friend, family member or spouse and say “Finally.”? I don’t even think you do if you’re one of the people who holds the copyright to Alvin and the Chipmunks. I don’t even think you do that if you hold the publishing rights to the song “My Friend the Which Doctor”.
Who out there is looking for this film to be made? Why make it?
Have CGI versions of vaguely popular characters from the past, interacting with live action humans been a formula for success in film? What pictures of who naked does the guy from “Garfield: A Tail Of Two Kitties”, who directed this thing, have?
All “The Chipmunks” are, is someone singing on a record, but the record is played at a faster speed. If as a child your parents (wisely) wouldn’t buy you an Alvin and the Chipmunks’ album (why the hell would you want one?) all you had to do was take any existing record you had, and pay it at a faster speed. There, you had Alvin and the Chipmunks. Want to hear them playing “Rich Girl” by Hall and Oates? Play “Rich Girl” at a faster speed. Ha, ha. Funny. Now get ready to sit through an entire movie about it.
Does Jason Lee owe money all over town? And apparently David Cross is in it too. Someone pay off these guys gambling debts!
