5.0 out of 5 stars Classic movie April 25 2010
I actually didn't get my copy from here, walmart actually and couldn't snach up the last copy on the shelf fast enough. I loved the movie as a kid and watched it on VHS all the time till the VCR ate it. I hadn't seen it for so long and had almost forgot about it, from the the music to the wild scemes they come up with and I still love all the songs and I'm 23... Great movie for all ages that I never get tired of.

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em like this anymore Jan. 6 2008
This was one of my absolute favorite films to watch as a kid. This is evidenced by the fact that last week when I decided to watch it again for the first time in a dog's age, my poor old VHS tape was worn out like you wouldn't believe. What's worse, my mom's cheap VCR mangled the tape when I ejected it... and that very evening I came straight on here and bought the DVD. So now I probably don't have to tell you that I think this is a wonderful film. But it really is! No matter how old I get, my appreciation for it is never shaken. I'd say it has aged better than just about any other movie from my childhood. The charm of the story and characters hasn't faded, nor do they seem out of date after 20 years.

One thing I really admire this film for is how it succeeds so well at (to use a tired cliche) having something for everyone. As a kid I was happy just to listen to the music (which is also top-notch) and watch the adorable cast members travel the world while avoiding baddies, and not caring about anything else. But when I watch it now, I'm like, "Wow, it's about diamond smugglers?? That's pretty sophisticated for a kid's movie!" There's a whole dark side of the film that I didn't have access to as an 8-year-old. And the brilliant thing is they managed to pull that off without constantly going over kids' heads and making it seem like the film is actually being marketed to the parents, which so many so-called children's movies do nowadays.

So anyhow, wonderful movie, children of any age will love it to death and want to watch it again and again (so DVD is a wise investment ;) I really hope films like this continue to be appreciated by future generations, because I'm afraid they'll be a lost art soon. The Chipmunk Adventure is for me a reminder of a time when animated films really had heart and a timeless quality. Please do someone you love a favor and watch it with them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Freggin Awesome, it's finaly coming to DVD! Feb. 14 2006
By A Customer
I haven't seen this on dvd yet but it isn't out yet, i do however remember the movie itself from my childhood and lately i just copied the vhs onto dvd so that i could keep it from wearing out. I am happy to see now that i will not need this home made dvd as they are planning to release this title from my childhood on dvd in may. Probably due to recent sales of the Chipmunk Christmas, which was another one i grew up with. I'm still barely 18 but i am a little old for Alvin and the chipmunks. People say they find them annoying but since i grew up liking them it takes me back to my childhood.
The plot of the film itself is about Dave going on a trip to soem exotic locations for his job (Paris, Rome) and Alvin wants to go but must stay home with Simon Theodore and the babysitter. Wishing he could travel the world the chipmunks and their friends the chipettes amazingly end up going on a race around the world to see who can make it back first, they race in hot air balloons. Of course the people supplying them with the means to do so are a pair of adults who are brother and sister (Claudia and Claus i think their Russian) who play the part of the bad guys and just want the chipmunks to smuggle diamonds around the world for them in Chipmunk dolls that they must exchange for cash filled chipmunk dolls at certain points. The chipmunks are obviously unaware of this. This is a plotpoint i never got as a child but discovered upon watching the film when i recovered it in my basement a few months ago in august. Their are many songs and funny bits with dave and Mrs. Miller (the boys babysitter). There are many jokes i never got as a child cause i was so naive,and they made me laugh more now that i'm older.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, and a Very Fun and Carefree Movie Nov. 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Why is this film not yet out on DVD? Judging by the other reviews, I have no doubt that it would sell very well.
THE CHIPMUNK ADVENTURE is a classic; a true masterpiece; and should not be taken lightly. It has a great storyline, some gorgeous animation, and has a pretty good soundtrack.
There is not really anything more to say that hasn't already been mentioned in other reviews. This is just a very fun and carefree animated movie. I am a huge fan of The Chipmunks '80's television series; and THE CHIPMUNK ADVENTURE simply plays out like a pro-longed episode. While other movies based on television shows seem to "distance" themselves from the feel of a series, THE CHIPMUNK ADVENTURE maintains the same style exhibited on their show (not their original series; I cannot stand watching that LOL).
I truly hope that this movie is released on DVD. Up to now, there all only four chipmunks DVD's (available on Alvin & the Chipmunks official web site); only one of them being a "classic" program.
Hopefully, we will get more of the older stuff next year!

5.0 out of 5 stars should appeal to all ages May 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of those strange movies that has humor for all ages. little kids will love it for the calming adventure and very fun layed back style. I used to love it for that but now i watch it when i'm older and realize there is more appeal to this than there once was. It is also filled with hidden adult type humor also. For example the two villans are smuggling diamonds and are from costa rica. David going on a "business trip" out of country and strictly refuses to take the chipmunks. And then there is sexual appeal. The chipmunks and chipettes seem awefully playfull against each other such as in girls/boys of rock and roll. and then there is the infamous chipettes Gettin' Lucky With You...sung to snakes. The snakes seem awefully happy starting at the second chorus. Also during the main chorus and when the snake wraps around Jeanette im sure it enjoyed every second he had her body. same with the end of the song. As you can see there is no reason to not like this movie and should be a must for everyones movie collecting no matter how old you are.
