Alvin and the Chipmunks

On the heels of Underdog, Jason Lee signs on for yet another unnecessary live-action/CGI update of a beloved childhood cartoon. Here, he plays David Seville, adoptive "father" to three singing chipmunks. The satire of today's music industry is rather toothless. (Josie and the Pussycats said it far better.) But the animal antics are cute and the songs are fun. ("Witch Doctor" does get updated as a rap tune, but it's actually kinda catchy.) 91 minutes PG.
