From the Back Cover

Lights... camera... Alvin! Alvin? "Alll-vin!" Yes, it's everyone's favorite singing chipmunks--Alvin, Simon, and Theodore--in their very first full-length motion picture. And what a film it is! Filled with thrilling adventure, toe-tapping songs, and exotic global locations, The Chipmunk Adventure is an awesome animated odyssey. When Dave Seville embarks on a solo business trip to Europe, a disappointed Simon, Theodore, and Alvin are left at home in the care of the accident-prone Miss Miller. But soon Alvin has agreed to an offer that will allow the boys to become jet-setters of their own--by participating in an around-the-world hot-air balloon race! Their main competitors in the airborne adventure are the Chipettes--Brittany, Jeannette, and Eleanor--but their real opponents turn out to be Klaus and Claudia, two conniving international crooks who have cooked up the "race" as a front for their worldwide diamond smuggling operation! Join the laughs, music, and mayhem as the Chipmunks and the Chipettes take off on their hilarious high-flying adventures.

Ok, if listening to a geek bothers you, skip this review, although you are reading a review of a chipmunk cartoon, so, "Hello, kindred spirit!" This is one of those movies I watched religiously as a kid and survived into my adulthood. Geek alert: I even still listen to the sound-track. . . the songs really are good. You get to hear the chipmunks sing about Rock and Roll and Gettin' Lucky! It really is a truly cute movie, full of rip-roaring animated chipmunk hilarity and adventure. They go all over the world on a huge and dangerous race, all the while evading two captors who are out to get them. There is a classic Chipmunks verses the Chipettes dance/sing off. Completely entertaining for all kids, and enjoyable on a completely different level now that I am an adult. Rich color, great sound, non-stop action and humor. My only complaint is that they need to get it out on DVD!

Though we are led to believe that the stars of this movie are the Chipmunks, it's Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor who really steal the film. It is as gorgeous to look at as it is fun to watch! Oh, and I have to mention one of the two criminals, the brother Klaus, who is simply hilarious! And who could forget the comic bantor over the phone between Miss Miller and Dave! Some of it was right out of Abbot and Costello! This is one of those films that reminds you that the 80's wasn't a total loss, at least not when it comes to animation. But where's our merchandise? I want a Brittany doll like in the movie! I know some merchandise was put out, more based on the show, but it was hard to aquire then, and it's almost impossible today, even with the internet! Anyway, show! In this film we see the two aspiring musical acts in a hot air baloon race around the world, unwittingly playing the roles of diamond smugglers for a pair of unscrupulous criminal siblings. The Chipmunks are at their best in this completely entertaining film, but the Chipettes are better than ever! With the bigger budget animation we see art and movement that is a vast improvement over the TV version. What can I say, in this movie, the girls are adorable!!! I mean, a thousand times moreso than on TV, especially the lovely Brittany! This is one of those handful of movies that proves that non-Disney, non-Anime animation can still be GREAT!!!! The movie has very effective comedy, Excellent songs, and is surprisingly well animated. Not as perfect as from Disney, but the musical numbers are given special effort and come off spectacular! There are a few sightings of choppy animation in the film, but very few. For the most part this a great movie! Buy yourself a copy, and let's hope it gets the DVD treatment soon!

This product is exactly what I ordered and expected. My children watched this movie on VHS about twenty years ago. I purchased it on DVD for my grandchildren. They absolutely love it!!! They love the animation and music. My children enjoyed watching with their children. A GREAT purchase.

I remember actually seeing this movie in the theaters, and becoming quickly obsessed with it. When it finally came out on video, I watched it with my best friend at least five times a week. We even acted out scenes from it which, to this day, continue to provide entertainment to our friends. Sometime around age 15, I lost the tape, and didn't notice it, until one day, I had an urge to see it. I rented it, and remembered why it was so wonderful--the songs, the adventure! This is a video that every family should have! The images and sights always made me want to travel, and that feeling is still within me. So even now, at age 20, I still have to pop in the Chipmuck Adventure, and watch it, having every line memorized. But for me, it's like the first time all over again.

I've loved this movie since I was a child. If I had to get rid of every movie I watched as a kid and could only keep one, this is definitely the one I would keep.

Dave is going on a business trip to Europe, leaving the boys with Miss Miller. Then, the Chipmunks and the Chippettes meet two people who offer to let them race around the world for a prize of one-hundred-thousand dollars, not knowing that it's just a scam to get them to deliver diamonds to people. Running into all kinds of trouble, and singing a bunch of great songs, this movie is one of the best cartoons ever! The scene where the boys sing "Woolie Bully" is even more classic than Pee-Wee dancing to "Tequila". If you or your kids have never seen this movie, you don't know what you're missing! I really hope this movie comes out on DVD soon, but for now the VHS will do just fine.

This movie was one of my husband's favorites when he was a child. We bought it so that he could share it with his son. We all enjoyed watching it together and it's now it's one of our son's favorites. Grab a bowl of popcorn and put this movie on, you've got a perfect evening at home with the family :)

The Chipmunk Adventure is still one of my all-time fav animated movies, ranking above most of even Disney's best from the 80s and early 90s (it's a shame it only did a disappointing $6 mil. at the domestic box office).

The animation is beautiful, the story never gets old for me, and the music...well, it should come as no surprise that I also own the soundtrack on CD. I think this movie still stands the test of time, and if you have young children today they'd enjoy this as much as I did at that age. My only warning is that if you think you couldn't stand hearing your kids' high-pitched versions of "Wooly Bully" for the next few months, then don't dare bring this into your home. (But if you are the type to sing along...)

But I digress. I don't want to give away any of the story, but generally, the chipmunks & chipettes enter into a bet to race around the world for $100K. Of course, Dave would never allow this, and the scheme to keep him (and babysitting Mrs. Miller) unaware is almost as much of an adventure as the race itself.

I won't ruin anything for those who haven't seen it, but suffice it to say, there is something the youngsters don't know about the race that will end up getting everyone in deep trouble before the movie ends.

It's exciting, funny, beautifully animated and like I said, if you can walk away w/o humming even one of the tunes, I'd be surprised.

Definitely a great kids movie, as well as for those of us w/ a serious case of 80s nostalgia!

One Final Note:

Obviously, this movie has been one of my favorites since childhood, and I--like many others, if you read the reviews here, alone--have been patiently waiting for it to come to dvd.
