MTV has a couple new clips (watch them here) from Alvin and the Chipmunks that they introduce thusly:
What happens when you mix David Cross with three over-caffeinated singing chipmunks? If 20th Century Fox has their way, it will be sheer hilarity and boffo box office. “Alvin and the Chipmunks” opens December 14th, but we’ve got your first look below.
Yeah, sure buddy. Any time you hear a guy say "If __ has their way…" or "boffo" you can pretty much guarantee he’s full of sh-t and trying really hard not to rip something.
It’s only out of sheer, morbid curiosity that I post this stuff. Who thought this was a good idea? And how much money are they throwing at this thing? They got Jason Lee and David Cross to be in it, two guys who seem to have reasonably decent taste and who aren’t poor – I’m thinking it was blackmail. Or maybe large blackmale. The first trailer had a chipmunk eating poop. In this one, it sounds like Alvin’s singing a strip tease song as he suggestively hula hoops. Is this supposed to be a kid’s movie about rodents who eat other’s crap and try to f-ck me? CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME JUST WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?
