YMMV / The Chipmunk Adventure

  • Awesome Music/Ear Worm: The movie's soundtrack, which helps greatly that most of the music is original work for once.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: The movie is often remembered for the Chipettes. More specifically for their several Panty Shot scenes and when Brittany and Jeanette, in Belly Dancer outfits, have to get past a swarm of snakes charming them and singing a song named "Getting Lucky".
  • Covered Up: "The Girls of Rock and Roll" first appeared in the movie The Malibu Bikini Shop, but people might have stronger memories of The Chipmunks and The Chipettes singing it.
  • Moment of Awesome: The final car chase at the end. All set off with one line: "INSPECTOR JAMAL! LET'S GO!"
  • Older Than They Think: The standout song from The Chipmunk Adventure, "Girls of Rock and Roll", originally appeared in a 1986 b-movie called The Malibu Bikini Shop. Listen to it here.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Glen Keane was a lead animator on this film while still a freelancer, shortly before joining Disney full-time.
  • Special Effect Failure: In the otherwise heartwarming Tear Jerker song, "My Mother", it becomes especially apparent that only one actor is voicing all three Chippettes, as they pass the melody between each other without any tonal change.
  • Technology Marches On: It would have been a lot easier for Mario to be The Mole if he contacted Jamal on his own cell phone instead of Claudia's landline, which is of course what gets him caught.
  • What An Idiot: Did Alvin and Brittany really believe Klaus and Claudia intended to keep their promise of $100,000 to the winning team? Or that they would still get it after learning of their actual scheme and confronting them on it? Especially egregious as the two of them demand the prize money even after the two siblings had just tried to kidnap them and had already been arrested. It takes Dave to remind them that they're not getting a cent for their troubles.
