Alvin and the Chipmunks


I took Landon to see this movie tonight. He loved it. Plenty of little boy humor in it. It was a cute movie, though I don't think I will buy it for our collection. Landon said his favorite part was when Theodore was eating lots of nuts and said, "This is the best day of my life!" I honestly figured it was going to be the part where Alvin farted in Dave's face. I was wrong. :0) My favorite part was when Theodore went into Dave's room and woke him up to tell him that he had a bad dream and wanted to know if he could sleep with him. Dave tells him that it's fine as long as he stays on his side of the bed. So, he climbs in and two seconds later he is curled up into a little ball in the crook of Dave's neck. It was cute.
So, yeah...movie wasn't horrible, it was just about 20 minutes too long. I was ready for it to be over by that time. But, again...Landon loved it. And there was no potty humor or bad words in it, which totally impressed me. Just a kids movie. So, they hit their mark. Totally kid approved. ;0)

We went to see this today too! I agree, it was ok. It certainly is no Ratatouille but it makes the kids happy.

Oh, cool. Thanks for the referral. I've been wanting to take Logan to see this one and I can guarantee his favorite scene will be the farting in the face one.

Oh, and every time I see your profile and read the part where you encourage us readers not to feel bad that your children are cuter than our's, I just crack up. Funny girl.

I want to see this too, but ,like so many other movies we will probably see it on video, we are so boring.

Thanks for the review. It's always good to know if you should waste yoru time or not. We took my oldest to see Bee Movie which he watched and liked but forgot about after about 15 minutes however that night he was playing Toy STory 2 because frankly WAY better movie.

I totally thought it was super cute...but I really don't get out much, and I don't watch too many movies. I live a very sheltered life :-) So, maybe it was just me...but I would recommend it.
