Oh God, Jason Lee why? ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS movie from the mind-blowing talents behind the GARFIELD movie sequel?!?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Okay, yes... I grew up with Alvin and the Chimpmunks... in fact, they were very much in the same league with Garfield (and Friends), Peanuts and Gumby... kind of that group.
Sure, make a movie. Go for it. Jason Lee as Dave Seville? Okay, I guess... although completely different from the strict-ish up tight character, I like Lee... go for it. Why not? But Tim Hill is directing, the guy behind GARFIELD: A TAIL OF TWO KITTIES... I can see the movie already, as bland as bland can be.
I guess it's not sacred territory, but goddamnit... I loved these guys... I even loved the hell out of the '80s animated movie. It pains me seeing these movies done so horribly... ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE... GARFIELD... Guess there's a chance UNDERDOG (voiced by Lee, I might add) might actually be kind of cool... Meh... the whole thing. Meh.
