Why The a Films Sucks Big Time
- Abysmal pop songs, even moreso than the sequels after. The original versions of the songs are far superior.
- Lack of personality for the chipmunks.
- Dave appears unlikeable in this movie.
- A lot of juvenile humor.
- Numerous product placements.
- Awful generic plot
- As it applies to the next few films, the Chipmunks are the size of actual chipmunks instead being the size of a child (the latter had depicted them in the animated shows and direct-to-video films).
- The Chipettes are introduced in a VERY lazy way.
- The male high school students act like morons, acknowledging the chipmunks as the new kids.
- The girls gossip about the chipmunks for no reason.
- A very badly executed (and misplaced) Donald Trump joke at the film's lazily made climax.
- The subplots are conflicting with each other, blinding the film's main focus, as if it didn't know what it should be all about.
- Out of all these terrible films, this is easily the most mean Spirited.
- Cliché plot.
- Why was Dave and the Chipettes there in case the Chipmunks were stranded?
- The way the camera focuses on the ship in the intro is cheap.
- The guy in the pelican suit appears again when no one cares.
- David Cross, who Plays Ian, said this was the most unpleasant experience in his life.
- Widely considered the worst film in the live-action series.
- The plot is rather obscure, rendering the movie pointless.
- David Cross, who plays Ian, doesn't appear in this movie at all.
- The Chipettes have a small cameo, rendering their appearance pointless.
- The voice actress Amy Poehler, who plays Jenny from Free Birds and Joy from Inside Out, does not return to play Eleanor, and was replaced by Kaley Cuoco. The reason for this is unknown.
