Three chipmunks find themselves displaced when their home, a spruce tree, is cut down by a Christmas tree company and installed in the lobby of prestigious Jett Records in downtown Los Angeles. The chipmunks stow away in a basket of muffins being carried out of the building by down-on-his-luck musician/songwriter Dave Seville (Lee). Once back at Dave
The anamorphically enhanced 1.83:1 DVD shows deep black levels and good shadow delineation, which can help create a nice sense of dimensionality. Colors are bold and vibrant, with somewhat oversaturated hues that should appeal to kids. Fleshtones look accurate at times, but there are many times when they are overly orange. Resolution is solid as well, but there are times when the image is somewhat soft. The animated chipmunks generally mesh well with the live-action footage. Edge enhancement is noticeable at times, and edges occasionally look overly digitized. (Danny Richelieu)
