'Alvin & The Chipmunks Go To The Movies'
(Animation / DVD / G / 2008 / Paramount)
Overview: Join the Chipmunks for an amazing trip through Hollywood as they spoof 3 of Hollywood s biggest comedies! DVD includes 3 adventurous and music-filled episodes.
DVD Verdict: Basically, 'Alvin and the Chipmunks - Go to the Movies: Funny, We Shrunk the Adults,' provides three episodes from the eighth and final season of "Alvin and the Chipmunks." In 1990, the NBC show was retooled and retitled "The Chipmunks Go to the Movies", with each installment inspired by a popular recent film.
There were only thirteen episodes produced in this incarnation, so "The Chipmunks Go to the Movies" (which is not to be confused with the 1969 album of the same name) is practically crying for a more complete series DVD set! But be aware for less than a year after the studio released a 3-episode compilation, we get this next 3-episode compilation ... which features the episode which lends its title to the disc which was already one of the 3 included on last spring's "Go to the Movies" DVD!
Anyway, "Back To Alvin's Future" is the best of the bunch as it is a tribute to Ross Sr. where the boys go back to 1957 to convince Alvin of the 50s to stick with music. Clyde Crashcup was brought back as the kooky inventer. "We Shrunk the Adults" was good, but the name change for Mrs. Miller was weird to hear! "Bigger" was not one of my favorites as Alvin sounded like he did when he was smaller! Besides, how many talking chipmunks are there in the human populace!? It did not seem to work for me, that's all I'm sayin'! This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs, but does not come with any Special Features.
