How come I never heard of this movie before?
I heard about it and saw it at the same time - yesterday. AWESOME. Oh, yes it is for kids and all that - and the reason I sat around to watch it was because my son wanted a company (not that I am complaining! I enjoy animation movies as much or more than him, as I have mentioned in detail before). As always, when I watched this one, I was filled with admiration for the wonderful people who made the movie attain perfection - I couldn't spot any flaw anywhere. I even wondered for a fleeting moment, can these chipmunks be real... oh no, oh no, they aren't. But how beautifully real they seem. And how well they sing and dance!
Alvin, Simon and Theodore, I love you all !
Digression. My son says he wants to watch the movie of the "Mongoose" instead of the Chipmunks. :) I raise an eyebrow and he says, "Chipmunks".
