They're baaa-aack! Yes, it's those crazy little high-pitched critters once again terrorizing the landscape, this time with everything from a jungle-based take on "The Purple People Eater" to a chintzy routine built on the X-Files theme music. Somewhere in there the producers have worked in an unnerving version of "The Time Warp" that sees Alvin and company working up a sleaze factor that might well alienate some of the more aware parents. The Chipmunks have gone beyond the fun factor to become routine annoyances -- Dave Seville is sorely missed.
