Top Ten Reasons Why the Live Action "Alvin and the Chipmunks" Movies Need to Stop

There's a new Alvin And The Chipmunks movie coming out, and it looks horrid...I've lost track of how many movies there are. Theses movie are something you would only like as a kid, but once you grow up you realize they're terrible! Here's some reasons they are bad!

The Top Ten

1 They rely too much on bathroom humor

The first and second movies were decent in my opinion and the third one was kinda terrible and why bother with watching the fourth one. Plus I have never liked the voices of the chipmunks (you can see my profile description under things/people that I dislike &/or hate the voices are in there). - Anonymousxcxc

I blame The Lion King for introducing fart jokes to family-friendly films, yet most films made after that had to follow that suit.

I'll admit, when I was little I used to enjoy these movies. But now, they disgust me. - nintendofan126

I have these films - Martinglez

2 Alvin and the Chipmunks have been turned into cash grabbers

The Road Chip is a perfect example of constantly milking a franchise. - jameshoward

It used to be a nice cartoon that you could watch while you relax, but now, they're just used to get the pennies out of you're pocket. But that happens to every franchise sadly... - nintendofan126

That is too bad... I hope this doesn't happen to Sonic the Hedgehog in the future. I am worried.

Because the poster makers are lazy with changing the faces. - Swampert02

3 They've made enough movies

Should've stopped after Squeakuel because the last 2 weren't really purposeful.

I'm only counting in the live action movies for this one. I looked it up, and they made four live action movie! You think that's enough? - nintendofan126

Yeah and for the first movie the critics gave it negative reviews and the second one too so why a fourth one? - Anonymousxcxc

Alvin and the Chipmunks only made 4 movies while Ice age made 5!

4 They only appeal to little kids

Or they also only appeal to long-time or die-hard fans of the cartoon series. Other than that, the films are pretty mediocre.

Only little kids like them. Everybody else over the age of I'd say maybe 13 doesn't like them. - nintendofan126

Hey I'm a teen I kinda like it

5 The animation
6 They're forgettable

You'll see them once and you probably won't remember one memorable scene from it. I can't even name one. - nintendofan126

I agree... Too bad they make so much money in the box office, though.

7 Too many butt jokes

This may be a rehashed item, but this needs to be here. In the next movie, Theodore, is shaking his butt to "Baby Got Back." Enough said. - nintendofan126

Theodore dancing to "Baby Got Back" is just not funny.

Baby Got Back is too innapropriate for kids and family movies


8 Nickelodeon advertises them whenever a new one comes out

Proof that Nickelodeon is slightly more inflexible than Disney Channel, WB Kids and Cartoon Network.

So annoying

9 It tries too hard to be funny

Definitely, it tries way too hard - comedic timing cannot be forced. - Yeshua

The original Alvin and Chipmunks can do better than this

Its supposed to be kinda of a comedy for the whole family you dumby

I know

10 The jokes are weak

The Contenders

11 Too much pop music

There's simply no diversity. Just pop music to appeal to teenage girls and boys. My goodness, where are those songs which can be related to anyone's life?

12 Simon is ugly

In the cartoons he is hot but in the movies he looks like poop

13 Alvin and the Chipmunks was never good in the first place

The old cartoon was decent.

Ikr? The first movie was boring, so WHY make 3 more?!

14 Alvin is extremely annoying

Yeah his voice sounds like a baby

15 They are like the current state of sonic the hedgehog

Classic Sonic/Alvin & the Chipmunks (back in the mid-to-late 20th century) > Modern Sonic/Alvin & the Chipmunks (back in the late 20th Century) > Dark Age of Sonic/Modern Alvin & the Chipmunks

16 The producers clearly ran out of ideas
17 It has nothing to do with the original TV series
18 Too many pop culture references
19 They hogged the box office
20 They're Super Unfunny
21 Alvin & the Chipmunks/Chipettes sound too one-dimensional
22 It’s a disgrace to the original
23 On the Posters, They Reuse the Same Picture of the Chipmunks
