Alvin and the Chipmunks

I just saw a preview for an Alvin and the Chimpmunks movie (real, not amimated. Jason Lee plays the guy--what was his name? Their "owner" or whataever?). I actually laughed at a couple parts, including when owner-guy was trying to put the moves on his girl and they cut to Alvin kind of swiveling his hips and singing "Bow-chica-bow-wow."

My question IS, do kids these days even KNOW who Alvin and the Chimpmunks are/were? Will any kids want to GO to this movie? Or will the theaters be filled with a bunch of 30 year olds?

Alvin! Simon! The-0-dore! DO DO do-do-do-do!

We saw a trailer for it over the summer. Brent KINDA knows who they are because one of my dad's friends burned a couple of our old Chipmunks records onto cd's so Brent could listen to them :-)

But I have a distinct feeling the theater will be full of 30-somethings :-) I want to see it!

I think the kids will get into it again, like we were...it was fun to play that record and put it on full speed! HA!

So, Mason and I were decorating the tree today and the chipmunk song comes on. When Alvin gets in trouble, Mason starts cracking up and asking me to play that song with the funny voices over and over and over...so I think he might like the movie :).

Anthony wants to see it and he knows who they are. Every now and then on the Cartoon Network, they'll show the Chipmunks cartoons, not very often though.

Me, personally, won't be spending money on this movie at all.

The owner's name is Dave, isn't it?

Renee said...

Yeah, I think so, Anna.

Theodore was always my favorite. I thought Alvin was annoying because he was always getting into trouble.

But the question is... Can you name the Chipettes?

Renee said...

Oh, man! I don't think I can name ANY of the Chipettes! The name Julie is in my head for some reason, but I don't think it's right. Theodore was always my favorite, too. I think because he was the chunky one :-)

Cheater, Cheater, Cheater!

Oh, Renne's right! Theodore is the cute chubby one. Simon's the one with the glasses! He's the one that was my favorite. I guess it's been a while ;)
