Fans of Alvin, Theodore and Simon will find a lot to appreciate in this Chipmunk tale which combines music, comedy and scares. But the uninitiated may find the hyper-affected Chipmunk voices annoying if not downright unintelligible at times. This is especially true during their songs which include a pop/metal ditty, a rap number, and a 1980s style new wave tune. The boys perform at the Majestic Movie Studios Theme Park, and one day Alvin convinces his cohorts to visit the park’s Dragonland, commandeering a tour bus along the way. Meanwhile, park executive Mr. Yesman unwittingly hires the real Frankenstein monster as a park attraction. The monster's creator Dr. Frankenstein somehow ends up working at the amusement park as well. Soon enough the Chipmunks stumble upon the mad doctor’s nefarious doings. The chase begins as Dr. Frankenstein sicks his creation on Alvin. For the most part, the animation and story line capitalize nicely on a child’s fantasy of having the run of an amusement park after all the tourists have been sent away and the gates locked. There is the occasional successful stab at a joke for the adults to enjoy, but most of these attempts don’t hold up as well as they do in Chuck Jones’s Bugs Bunny or Road Runner cartoons, so the fun here is really just for small children.
