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.
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.Read more ›
