Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A few flaws, but overall a good movie

The Wooly Bully segment has them at first thinking they heard "Worry Burry", which may not be seen as PC. The Chipmunks are unknowingly lured into a jewel smuggling operation. Otherwise the movie is great. The voice acting and singing are far better than today's Chipmunks. The animation is great. I would also recommend the related 1980s cartoon.

Favorite From My Childhood

I love the Chipmunk Adventure. Boys vs Girls in a race around the world in hot air balloons. The villains are shown drinking and smoking, but not the good characters. They meet a tribe of cannibals who want to eat Theodore. The chipettes are held captive by a sheik who wants to make Brittany one of his wives. There are many fun songs like The Girls of Rock and Role, Wooley Bully, Diamond Dolls and more.

This title has:

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
