I have to admit that I used to love Alvin and the Chipmunks when I was a child . I just watched Alvin and the Chipmunks:Chipwrecked last week and I thought it was very well done. I have not seen the other CGI one but I really liked this one. Acting was good and the CGI was well done as well. If you want a good family movie I highly recommend this one.
I give this 5 out of 5
