This is the lowest grossing film out of the 4-film "Chipmunk" series and the only one to not earn $100 million or more at the domestic box office. This film made $85.9 million domestically and $234.8 million worldwide. This is likely a result of trying (and failing) to go up against the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) at the box office, which made more money in one weekend domestically than this film made worldwide in total ($248 million), and went on to make over $2 billion and become the 3rd highest grossing film of all time.

Each Chipmunk had an improv comedian hired to read their respective lines to the actors on set while green screen puppets were used for eyelines. Ron Ogden, the improv comedian reader for Theordore was asked to improvise a few songs to cover for a vocal aria Theodore does in the mini golf scenes. The use of Sir Mix A Lot's "Baby Got Back" in the films trailer and film was directly inspired by Ogden's improvised choices!
