Chipmunks 3

So during my holidays I got to take in a movie.  Things I watch have to be family friendly (unless it’s a date night with Wife) so as a New Years Eve treat, we took the kids to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.  I know, I know… many have voiced their dislike of the CG designs of the 80’s cartoon we grew up with (I’m assuming that you are all with in the same age as I am), and I agree… mostly.  I do like the designs of the main characters.  I think they did a good job of making them actual chipmunks unlike the cartoon where they were… I’m not really sure.  What I don’t care for is the Chipette CG designs.  They just look out of proportion to me.  Especially Elenore, her head is HUGE!  Brittany was okay and Jeanette just looked odd.

The other thing I found strange is the sexuality that they put in to the Chipettes.  The sexy dancing and the scene where they come out all in towels that don’t quite go to the bottom (the below picture isn’t the best sample but the best I could find).  I don’t remember them putting that in to the cartoon… but it has been a while.  I might have to check that out again.

Over all, the movie was just okay and pretty much what you’d expect from a Chipmunk flick.  The kids liked it and that’s what matters.  Did you take in a movie on during the holidays?
