The Chipmunk Adventure

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning when Dave is rummaging through his dresser trying to find a tie, he forgets that he's already wearing one which is tied. In the next shot Simon points this out for him (of course he doesn't mention that it's tied, though). But once Dave notices this, he turns around and we can see that his tie is now untied instead.

Continuity mistake: When Brittany and Alvin are first shown playing the hot air balloon arcade game, they're holding its joysticks with their right and left hands, respectively.

Continuity mistake: When Alvin starts dialing the number to Dave's hotel in Paris, there are 16 buttons on the pad (far too many for a standard phone). But right before the scene changes over to a snoring Dave, his phone now appears with the normal 12 buttons. (00:10:05)

Continuity mistake: When Miss Miller is pulling items of food from a cabinet, the Chipmunks are busy having breakfast. There is a carton of milk on the table right between Alvin and Simon's bowls of cereal. But after a shot of Theodore indulging in his meal, the milk carton is gone. Now Alvin and Simon have two glasses of milk instead, and who knows how they got there because Miss Miller was too busy talking to herself on the other end of the kitchen. (00:11:50)

Continuity mistake: During breakfast, the phone rings and Alvin sprints across the kitchen to fetch it. It's just Theodore playing back a doctored recording of Dave meant for Miss Miller to hear. So Alvin hands her the phone and listens nearby. Suddenly Theodore messes up by hitting the reverse button instead, and Miss Miller seems puzzled. In the next shot where Alvin panics, look in the background: now there's no cord hooked up to the phone. (00:12:35)

Continuity mistake: Right before each balloon takes off for the race, Sophie is seen gnawing on a rope and behind her - on the grass next to the Chipettes' basket - a couple of wooden crates are visible. But in the following shot where the teams are in midair struggling to maneuver their balloons, no crates can be seen anywhere on the ground below. (00:15:35)

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: When Klaus signals for the hot air balloons to lift off, Simon is still on the ground reluctant to participate in the race. But soon he catches up to his team's basket and clings to the side right below its sand bags. But just a couple of shots later when Simon remarks "Why didn't I think of that!", all of the sand bags are gone. (00:15:40)

In that scene, it shows the boys walking up the stairs together and from left to right the order is: Simon, Alvin & Theodore. The shot goes to the girls then back to the guys. The order of the guys has switched: (left to right) Theodore, Alvin & Simon.
