(at around 42 mins) Beth Riesgraf appears briefly in the movie. She and Matthew Gray Gubler, who is the voice of Simon, are in the show Criminal Minds (2005) together where Beth Riesgraf plays Matthew Gray Gubler's love interest for his character Spencer Reid. See more »
(at around 23 mins) Dave takes the glasses from a Santa doll and puts them on Simon. It is unlikely that a Santa doll's glasses would have prescription lenses, much less prescription lenses that are the exact prescription Simon's eyes need. See more »
Alvin (singing voice), Simon (singing voice), Theodore (singing voice):
Where is the moment we needed the most/You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost/They tell me your blue skies fade to gray/They tell me your passion's gone away/And I don't need no carryin' on/Cause you had a bad day/You're taking one down/You sing a sad song just to turn it around/You say you don't know/You tell me don't lie/You work at a smile and you go for a ride/You had a bad day/You've seen what you like/And how does it feel for one more time/You had a bad day/...

In the end credits, there is a disclaimer that says 'No chipmunks were harmed during the filming of this movie.' See more »
A CGI+ live action movie from the director of Garfield 2.? Also, once again a movie with a loser "dad" character and some very bad children (okay, they are chipmunks but behave just as children as they are kids) like Daddy Day Camp and others? Actually, the chipmunks make all the difference and save the movie. What does not work with Garfield (warm Hollywood-emotions and the animal as a fast rock star-type) works perfectly with the chipmunks. Also their animation is never off-setting as it quite often was with Garfield. And even after almost 50 years, it still makes you smile to hear them singing. When you watch the trailer you can see that poo-eating part which I see is in the movie just to bring in that type of audience - I think it is a bad idea as it makes others think twice before buying ticket for this movie which has only one fart joke and this poo joke of this type of "humour". Otherwise it is watchable and the animated characters are even lovable (Jason Lee is not so great in this). It was a fun travel back in the time when I watched them as a child. Not a big movie, also there are problems with the pacing but it's much better than expected.
