Don't Have Kids? Don't See This Movie

There are some movies that are ostensibly 'children's ' movies that nonetheless have story elements that can hold the attention of people who are old enough to drive. This isn't one of them. My children were enthralled. My daughter, especially, whose friend has he soundtrack on CD and played it during a sleepover, enjoyed it. But she's ten. And even then, the voices of the Chipmunks are so high and squeaky, that she kept asking me what was said. Which meant that I had to pay attention to the movie more than I really wanted. Don't get me wrong; his is not an awful movie. Which is sort of a pity, because sometimes one can revel in the awfulness of a truly bad flick. This movie had all the appeal of sitting in a dentist's waiting room for an appointment to get your teeth cleaned. It's not something to look forward to, or even dread, but simply one of those things that needs to be done (assuming, of course, that you have teeth. Or kids) Wait for cable. And avoid it there, too.
