Alvin and the chipmunks

Ok, do not ignore this just because of the name, maybe you don’t like these movies (which I don’t get how you couldn’t) but that doesn’t mean to disregard this! haha 😛 So, I never watched the old chipmunks for some reason… So this will be about the latest 2 chipmunk movies. You can probably identify yourself as at least one of them. And if you really don’t like the movie, then whatever :P. haha

So let’s start with Alvin: Alvin is a roller coaster. His enthusiasm is boundless and his despair bottomless. The term look before you leap definitely doesn’t apply to Alvin. He is quite impulsive and charming, he seems to come up with wild schemes to get his current goal. He is a complete daredevil which most times gets him into trouble. Sometimes he loses his focus and messes up things he never meant to but he manages to piece it all back together in the end. Well, unless it’s a TV or something like that, in that case he plays his second favorite game “hide the broken TV from Dave”. Did I mention he happens to get in the most trouble with Dave?

Simon: Simon is the genius of the chipmunks, he has a dry sense of humor and keen wit. Sometimes Alvin exploits Simon’s mastermind for his crazy schemes because he can actually make them work. Simon loves Alvin and doesn’t like to see him ditching them. When something upsets him he tries not to let it get to him, but he won’t stand for it.

Theadore: Theodore is the child of innocence. He is shy, loving, sensitive, gullible, trusting, naive and cute. In short, he is an easy target for Alvin’s manipulations. In fact, Theodore doesn’t like it when his brothers fight. He is easily frightened and tends to have nightmares.   Simon appeals to Theodore’s better nature while Alvin goes straight to bribery. He is constantly craving snacks and eating them. Theodore is the baby of the chipmunks.

Dave: Dave has his patience tested on a daily basis. Not only does he juggle his professional life as the quick-tempered songwriter for the musical trio, but he’s also the Chipmunks’ adoptive father. While Dave struggles to remain calm and objective, Alvin often irritates him, resulting in Dave’s famous yell,“AALLLVVVIIINN!!!!!!”.

Toby: Toby is Dave’s immature younger cousin who came to watch the chipmunks after Alvin gets Dave in the hospital. He is the one of the protagonists of the second film. Toby is a slacker who loves to play video games and eat tacos. Toby is a good guy but his immaturity keeps him from acting like an adult. Although he appears to be cool now, he was humiliated and bullied in high school. He was very awkward, had pimples and braces, and was shy. But once he grew up, he got handsome but he remains awkward and shy. He is secretly in love with his beautiful former classmate, Julie Ortega, who is currently the Chipmunks’ homeroom teacher.

The Chipettes

Brittany: Brittany is the lead singer and eldest sister of the Chipettes, and is the female counterpart of Alvin. She has a pleasing facial and physical appearance, but at times can be vain and self-serving with the extreme desire to have whatever she wants. Often Brittany is happy to outdo others she dislikes. Sometimes she can go to extreme points of either getting what she wants or outdoing Alvin in a bet or contest.

Jeanette is the tallest of the Chipettes. She is the female counterpart of Simon. She is the middle sister of the Chipettes. Jeanette has a high amount of intellect which she is often not afraid to use, and is considered the lovable klutz of the Chipettes.

Eleanor is the youngest Chipette. She is considered the female counterpart of Theodore, but is shown to be much more athletic. Out of the three Chipettes, she is the one who is most likely to willingly take place in a sports activity. Still, she is the chubbiest of the sisters due to her love for food and cooking. Eleanor is much less timid than Jeanette, and is always happy to stand up to Brittany when she thinks something isn’t right.

Now what is the life lesson? They might be far-stretched but look at the situations they get in to, relate to the most like you character and see what you learn from their situation. Also it’s pretty awesome to identify with one of the chipmunks/chipetts 🙂 hahaha

Live long and prosper, Tori.
