Picture from Alvin and the Chipmunks
Overall B

If you thought singing rodents becoming pop stars was something that could only happen in cartoons--think again. The Saturday morning classic, Alvin and the Chipmunks, has been translated into a live action film (although the crooners are computer generated), where the trio continues to be troublesome to their caregiver, songwriter David Seville (Jason Lee).

Please read our content details for this movie to help determine if it is suitable for members of your family. We also encourage you to check our full review and our movie information page.

Despite what the trailers might imply, this film contains very little content parents are likely to find objectionable. One flatulence joke and the advertised excrement eating scene make up most of the script’s bathroom humor. A few mild rude comments, some social drinking and brief cartoon violence are also included. Most worrisome is the portrayal of a chipmunk inhaling helium to change his voice.
