Through cartoons, TV puppet shows, Grammy-winning records and now CG-enhanced movies, Alvin And The Chipmunks have been entertaining kids and giving their parents tinnitus for over 50 years.
You’d think that their voices would have broken or the US government would have had them shot as a health hazard by now. But here they are, over 50 and only just going to high school.
When their hapless human guardian Dave (Lee) is hospitalised during a typically rowdy gig, cocky Alvin, speccy Simon and pudgy Theodore are sent to live with his aunt... who is immediately hospitalised. See? Health hazard.
Left in the dubious care of Dave’s socially challenged cousin Toby (Zachary Levi, TV’s supergeek ‘Chuck’), the trio are plunged into the equally chaotic world of the classroom.
The girls love them; even the Principal is a secret fan. The jocks, however, don’t take kindly to being out-cooled by talking vermin.
