You know, I feel really bad for Jason Lee. I really wonder what he's being blackmailed with to star in this.

Also: I like how modernizing the chipmunks for today's "hip" kids means dressing them up as rappers, circa 1991.

Hey, speaking of the Chipmunks, I remember a long time ago when I used to watch the old cartoon I thought the Chipette's Brittany was spelled and pronounced Britainese and I also thought that Britainese was the language they spoke in Britain.

I also remember the old cartoon drove me nuts when I remembered the Chipette's had two conflicting introductory episodes where in both of them it seems they meet Alvin's group for the first time. WHICH EPISODE WAS CANON?!?!?!

Either that or my memory's failing me.

OK, I don't want to hear anyone bitch about how this movie is "raping their childhood" unless they are 50 years old.

The Chipmunks TV show we all grew up with in the 80s was ALREADY an obnoxious "hip" bastardization of an older cartoon. If this movie is rape then it is raping a rapist. AND WHO DOESN'T LOVE THAT

It would be like Xzibit raping Phil Collins. Fun, but not so much as one would think.

And wasn't that Chipette-Chipmunks thing an episode and the movie (that one in which they compete traveling around the world and such)?

The chipmunks look really weird without shoes. And they're probably not showing their eyes on purpose until more info on the movie is revealed.

Those chipmunks are gonna look stupid (AKA beaten up) when they start singing "Witch Doctor" in those clothes.

It was probably together with the Underdog contract. His next movie will probably be something along the lines of Super Chicken or Hong Kong Phooey.

At least they kept the original designs intact.

Actually, a Super Chicken movie would rock if done right, but we can't bank on that happening, can we?

Well really, the original cartoon version of the chipmunks were more like this:

Whereas the the 80's redesign looked more like this:

And of course, a big part of that version of the show was dressing them up to match whatever hip modern music they were pastiching:

So like I said, I really don't see how this iteration is any lamer or more offensive than the last one.

It's more that this style isn't hip or modern. It's 10 years old.

The poster looks like it's from 1990. Seriously, it looks like Home Alone or something. The font, the tagline, what the hell?

Thank you. Has that red-on-white bubbly look ever been affixed to a good movie? I mean, the last two to use it were Norbit and that Are We There Yet sequel that did to John C. McGinley what this'll do to Jason Lee.

Big (assuming we're talking about the 1988 movie) is a good movie. What are you talking about?
