Audio/visual unsynchronised 

During the song "The Girls of Rock and Roll," when the Chipettes sing the line "The things they're trying to sell us," their lips aren't moving at all. The same thing happens again later in the song when the Chipmunks sing the line "We'll never stop believing" without moving their lips.

When the Chipmunks are in their bedroom getting ready to call Dave, we see Simon reading a book. When he turns a page he turns it to the right as if he was reading the book backwards.

When Dave drops the pair of mittens, Theodor has a sandwich in his hand. He picks up the mittens and calls, "Don't forget your mittens Dave; it's cold in Europe." But he clearly hands Dave the sandwich instead, and is about to take a bite out of the mittens, and then in in the next shot, Dave suddenly has the mittens.

To prove they've gone to every location, the Chipettes must drop off a Chipette doll and pick up a Chipmunk doll. However, during a musical montage, the girls are shown picking up Chipette dolls twice. Once on a windmill and then again on a ski lift when they should have been Chipmunk dolls.

Throughout the movie we really only see the inside of the Chipettes balloon basket. Various times the Chipettes look too short for their heads to reach over the tops of the basket's sides, such as when they first get in the basket at the beginning of the race, and sometimes they seem to be tall enough that their heads reach over the tops, such as when they are looking for the boys after they discover the doll full of diamonds.

During the end of the "Rock and Roll" song the Chipettes are holding on to the ropes of the basket when they are dancing and they look just wide enough to fit in the amount of space between each rope. Then when they are dancing and not holding onto the ropes they look significantly smaller and appear that they would not be able to hold onto the ropes.

Plot holes 

In Greece, the Chipmunks and Chipettes are surprised to see each other, yet they parked their balloons at the same spot. Even if one group arrived after the other, that group would have seen the balloon and known the others were already there.
