Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Once upon a time Alvin and the Chipmunks was for children

When I watched Alvin and the chipmunks the first time, it was fun and healthy and good.

Today was one of my son's days off from school and it was movie day. So they had picked Alvin and the Chipmunks the Squeakquel for their movie.

I watched with them and I found that this movie wasn't so kids friendly after all. Who needs all the sexy and adult innuendos? Can we just stick to funny and good ethics and lessons for our kids?

Some parts my kids were just bored and I'm sure they didn't really understand the little sexy parts too well but it doesn't mean they aren't learning.

This movie just pissed me off. Makes me not want to watch the other one they have about being chipwrecked.

And the songs being sung. Are we for  real? They couldn't find any other songs that would make this movie fun?

Yea, I wouldn't recommend this crap for kids.

  1. As an adult I want to see the first Alvin & the Chipmunks movie. I'm like you many of these old childhood favorites being resurrected for today's kids are anything, but kid-friendly. Hollywierd's objection is to trash our children's minds, I think. I say good for you in sticking to your conventions by giving this a two thumbs down for kiddie viewing.

  2. I have to be honest here, I think these movies are more for nostalgic adults rather than kids. I have no interest in them due to the fact that nothing can replace or add to the original show on TV that I watched as a young child. Honestly, most kids movies stink these days and I am glad I am not forced to watch them,haha. By forced I mean, I don't have kids.

  3. Oh, I am so sorry you were disappointed. I was always considered the stuffy parent and didn't let my kids watch anything but G for years. My husband let my daughter watch TWISTER, TWISTER when I was not home and I tell you to this day she has fears of storms and tornadoes, I mean TWISTER, she was like SIX or SEVEN, what was he thinking? (although she will tell you it is one of her favorite movies and he loves to throw that in my face,ugh)
    Anyway, I think it is sad they should just make the Chipmunk movies G but they want the parents to like it and they think they need to 'go there' and they don't, think "Toy Story" and such. So sad (:

  4. I loved toy story, little mermaid, all dogs go to heaven and a few other movies that I watched with my youngest. I do think that the media is rushing our children into an interest in sex way before their time.

  5. I often think that a PG rating does better for movies than a G does so they throw a few things in there ensuring them they don't get the G. Just a thought...

  6. we liked it (but remember that we have 12, 14 and 16 year old, as well as broxton)
    yes, it is a bit old.. but really got me was the smurfs movie..
    way too mature for kids!
