Continuity mistake: There is a scene where the Chipmunks and Chipettes are singing the song "Girls of Rock and Roll." 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.
Continuity mistake: During the "Girls of Rock N Roll" part, at one point, Jeanette and Eleanore do a ballet twirl together as they say, "Yeah we're the girls of rock and roll-la!" If you look, Jeanette's hair flickers from a redish brown color, to a duller brown right after they say "roll-la" dramatically. Not only does it not have anything to do with the spot light, but it's quite noticeable.
Continuity mistake: During the time the chipmunks arrive at Athens, Theodore sees the man with the food cart on his left and gasps. He then sneaks over to the food cart. If you notice the man while he's doing this, he is standing, looking straight ahead. But when Theodore begins to order, the man then turns to Theodore as if he was looking to his side. He couldn't have turned directions that quickly if Theodore had ordered immediately.
Audio problem: After the "Off to See the World" part, it shows Klaus and Claudia in the pool. The waiter tells Claudia that there's a long distance phone call for her from Europe. "Wonderful!" Claudia says, and she slides off her raft and while she makes her way out of the pool, accidentally drops water on Sophie. The dog freaks out, trying to paw the water off her and Klaus snickers at her. After the shot of snickering Klaus, it shows Sophie turning her head towards Claudia and you could hear her bark. However, she does not move her mouth as if she's barking and the barking noise sounds quite perky.
Continuity mistake: When the race begins, and Simon has to hold onto the bottom of the balloon basket, they are just at the top of trees - crashing into them. But when Theodore tells Simon he should get in, the aerial shot of Simon shows them quite high above the tree tops. In the next shot, they're crashing into treetops again.
Continuity mistake: During the "Rock N Roll" musical scene, the girls begin their part and they run up the stairs. Then they say, "Cuz we're the girls of rock n' roll!" While Britany says "Woo-hoo!" to Alvin, she moves her hips forcefully, making her skirt fly up and it reveals that her underwear is over her panty-hose. However, later when the chipettes march up higher stairs in the spotlight, Britany's underwear is visible again and it is now seen to appear under her panty-hose.
Continuity mistake: When the Chipettes are first dressed up in the Arabian outfits, Janette has earrings that are squared at the bottom. When she catches up to Elenore and Brittany after the snake song, Janette's earrings are round. After they are all back in the balloon, they are squared again.
Continuity mistake: After Klaus flicks water on Sophie during the pool scene, Sophie tries to get revenge by poking a hole in his raft. As she does this, the raft loses air and starts blowing around all over the pool. Klaus is yelling quite loudly and at one point, he crashes. The whole time, Claudia has been on the phone and has not heard all this chaos happening, but was able to hear her dog whimpering. Because it is harder to hear someone over the phone than someone in real life, it doesn't make much sense.
Deliberate mistake: While the rock n' roll musical is ending, it shows the hot air balloons in the background and it shows Dave up close. He talks to himself confused, trying to figure out if he really saw his boys there or not. But if not being able to notice, wouldn't he at least hear them singing in the background as well as we can? Also, before, while Alvin and Britany were dancing together, he was trying to get to them before the two bad guys could, as if he knew for sure they were his boys and that those guys were out to get them.
Continuity mistake: While the chipmunks arrive in Mexico, Alvin is instructed to drop off his chipmunk doll under the purple sombrero at the "Cluck N Taco." After he does this, the sombrero takes the chipmunk doll away and replaces it with a chipette doll. Alvin sees it and says, "Well, what do you know?" If you look at Simon, he's standing right next to Alvin, but a about a second later, when Alvin removes the doll and says, "One gal and eleven to go." Simon is suddenly farther away from him and Theodore is in fact closer to Alvin than Simon was.
Continuity mistake: Once the chipettes are escorted to the prince's palace in Egypt, the guards force them over and are supposed to be standing behind them. However, after Eleanore says, "Excuse me sir, but you wouldn't wanna marry Britany," and from then on when she and Jeanette are rambling on and on about Britany, the guards seemed to have vanished into thin air behind them. But after the prince says, "The ceremony will take place promptly at dawn," the guards suddenly have appeared again and take the girls away. I know they must be quick to every command of the prince, but the way they seem to vanish and appear is ridiculous.
Plot hole: Although it is explained how the chipmunks were able to get away with the balloon race by tricking Ms. Miller, wouldn't Ms. Miller know that the chipettes were in on the balloon race? Especially considering the fact that she is their guardian? Also, why would she offer to babysit the chipmunks if she has chipettes to look after herself? Despite this, the chipettes were never brought along to Dave's house with Ms. Miller. And what is Ms. Miller still doing in Dave's house if she thinks the chipmunks are with Dave? Unless maybe she's taking care of the house...
Continuity mistake: While the chipmunks are in Athens, at one point, Alvin begins to hum to himself and decides to steal an apple from the wooden box. However, when it first shows Alvin trying to grab the apple, both his hands seem to be gripped completly around the fruit, making it impossible for Britany to be able to have the same grip as Alvin without touching his hand (and realizing it) and vice-versa. And of course, it doesn't show her hands at first, unless this apple is enormous. Which is another problem; it seems to grow much larger in the next shot. Also, the apple changes from being in the wooden box, to being out of it when it reveals Britany is holding the other end.
Continuity mistake: In the pool scene, with Klaus and Claudia, Claudia is out of the pool to talk on the phone. Klaus turns to see if Claudia is looking, then flicks more water on Sophie. As he does this, you could see that he has a gold bracelet on his right wrist. But then, after he flicks the water on the dog and the dog freaks out again, the next shot shows Klaus snickering again and he no longer has the bracelet on.
Continuity mistake: After the chipmunks leave Mexico, it shows the boat the chipettes are on. As the camera gets closer, you could hear Eleanore say, "Britany, I really think we should just wait til he comes back out." There is a note that says, "Down below, back in a few hours - Mr. Anton." It is nailed at the very top of the door. In the next shot, before the chipettes exit that door, the note appears to have changed from light blue to white, it now has two nails on the top and bottom and has moved further down on the door.
Revealing mistake: While it introduces the chipmunks in Athens, it shows the three chipmunks and it shows Theodore looking around. There is a food cart right next to him with nobody behind it. But a second later, right when Theodore gasps, a man just magically appears behind the food cart.
Revealing mistake: When the chipmunks and chippettes and getting ready for the balloon race, Jeanette walks up to Simon and asks him what route to take to Bermuda. Pay attention to Theadore; he's supposed to be in front of Simon handing the chest of dolls to Alvin who is in the hot air balloon. After handing him the chest, he dusts his hands and moves his head a little while doing it. If you look at his head, it seems to cross behind Simon's even though Theadore is supposed to be in front of him. Simon's face may have needed to be seen, but still a mistake.
Continuity mistake: During the "rock n' roll" musical, around the end, the boys are dancing and are saying, "Yeah we're the boys of rock n' roll!" As they're doing this, the chippettes are already on the hot air ballon, dancing at the edges while holding the ropes and singing. If you look at the left of were Britany is, Jeanette is dancing there with her back turned. However, when it closes up on Britany saying, "Better be believin' that we are!" Look at that same spot where Jeanette was. She is no longer there.
Continuity mistake: During the car chase sequence involving Jamal's cruiser and Klaus & Claudia's Rolls Royce, the Rolls Royce makes a narrow escape at the intersection's red light. Jamal can't get through in time so he skids to a stop, leaving behind no tire tracks on the pavement. In the next shot, however, two pairs of skid marks are now visible right where they should be (although one frame too late). (01:08:35)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: Mario initially has a tie wrapped around his neck in the scene where the Chipmunks and Chipettes are being forced into Klaus and Claudia's Rolls Royce. It's also worth mentioning that Mario's hands are tied behind his back. Pretty soon the car swerves head-on into a pole. In the following shot we see Klaus, Claudia and Mario lying on the floor disoriented - but now he's sporting a bow tie instead. (01:07:50 - 01:09:40)ryguy_1983
Other mistake: Before the Chipmunks and Chipettes begin their hot air balloon race, Klaus goes through the rules explaining that each team will be given the opposing team's doll when they reach various destinations across the globe. He then walks over to the Chipettes and hands Jeannette a trunk full of Chipmunk dolls - but they're not supposed to receive any Chipmunk dolls until the race is in progress. (00:14:35)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Eleanor is trying to feed the ailing baby penguin with a spoon, it refuses to eat. So she places the spoon near two bowls at her side. In the following shot Eleanor can be seen dipping a rag into one of the bowls - but now her spoon is nowhere to be found. (00:54:00)ryguy_1983
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)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When the Chipmunks and Chipettes are approaching an airport in their hot air balloon, Simon reaches over the side and shouts, "We're home!" Notice how he and Alvin are wearing regular long-sleeve blue and red shirts respectively. But in the next shot when Dave's plane draws near, they're now wearing exotic clothes from their trip around the world instead. (01:05:35)ryguy_1983
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 the Chipmunks are delivering a Chipmunk doll in Venice, Simon holds a Simon doll in the long shot. When the cap of the post in the water is lifted, Simon inserts an Alvin doll.
Continuity mistake: After trying to entice the primitive tribe with flashy clothes and a boom box, Alvin and Simon get tied to a hut. The four ropes around their wrists are initially tied together in one knot right above their heads. But once they notice that Theodore is being pampered like a god, Alvin and Simon's wrist ropes are suddenly knotted separately instead. (00:51:05)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Clause and Claudia are pushing Alvin and the rest into their car at the end, Alvin is seen without his cap. You then see a shot of the inside of their car, and in the next shot Alvin's cap magically appears on his head and blows away. His cap is still off until after he hugs David at the end, then it's back on his head again.
Continuity mistake: In the final scene where Miss Miller is sitting next to Theodore adjusting her hair in the car's busted rear-view mirror, the shot changes to Dave opening the passenger's side door. But as he steps in, Miss Miller skids away and Theodore can now be seen sitting with the other Chipmunks and Chipettes in the back seat. (01:11:30)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: On their way to the Parthenon, the Chipmunks knock down a fruit vendor's tent. When Dave appears from beneath the sheet a second later we can see how one of the tent's support poles is broken in half, but in the previous shot none of the poles were even close to being damaged as they toppled over. (00:34:40)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: Seconds before Klaus and Claudia introduce themselves in the café, Brittany shouts at Alvin and then places her left hand at her side. But in the next shot her left hand is extended in Alvin's direction and she's standing in a different location on the floor tiles as well. (00:07:45)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: During the Chipmunk sacrifice scene, three primitive tribe members stand on top of one another and fall across a large gap in the boardwalk - forming a human bridge for their leader to walk over. But once the leader is almost across, notice how one of the members beneath him has managed to turn around between shots. (01:02:45)ryguy_1983
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. (00:01:45)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: At the airport after Klaus and Claudia escape with the Chipmunks and Chipettes, Inspector Jamal grabs Dave by the arm and leads him to a cruiser, where a high-speed chase commences. In this scene Dave is wearing a dark blue suit, but for a brief moment when Klaus and Claudia realize they're being tailed, Dave's got a light blue shirt on instead. (01:08:15)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Mario walks over to the pool and informs Claudia about a long-distance call, a table with a closed umbrella is visible in the foreground with three red chairs surrounding it. But a few moments later when Klaus is being thrown back and forth around the pool in his deflating armchair, an overhead view of the same table shows only one chair next to it. (00:31:05)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)ryguy_1983
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. But in the next shot where the rest of the Chipmunks and Chipettes are shown cheering on, both players are suddenly using their opposite hands to control the balloons. (00:04:20)ryguy_1983
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)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: During the full moon sacrifice, Alvin, Simon & Theodore are tied up to stakes and suspended in thin air on a boulder, which seven ropes are fastened to. But down below at a different angle, where alligators are gathering, only six ropes are holding them up now. (01:01:05)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Alvin leads everybody to a luggage chute in the airport, he's shown wearing a blue backpack - and he appears to have lost it upon reaching the baggage carousel area. After bumping into Klaus and Claudia he manages to get away with the others, but in one of the following shots his backpack suddenly reappears strapped over his shoulders again. (01:06:35)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: After Miss Miller narrowly dodges a head-on collision with Klaus and Claudia's Rolls Royce, she kicks open her door and steps out onto the highway shouting, "I hope you have insurance, buster!" In the following shot, Miss Miller walks towards the Rolls Royce - but now her door is suddenly closed. (01:09:55)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When the Chipmunks and Chipettes are singing "The Girls of Rock n' Roll" in Athens, Alvin starts the second verse by grabbing a small 4-string harp from a nearby statue. In the very same shot he begins to strum it like a guitar, but now one of the strings is missing. Just a couple of shots later, Alvin is dancing in front of Simon & Theodore and playing the same harp - only this time it has five strings instead of three. (00:35:50)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: In the "Wooly Bully" scene where Alvin, Simon and Theodore are suspended on a boulder jammed with elephant tusks above alligator-infested waters, all of the ropes get torched and they eventually drop down. But when the boulder smashes the head of an unlucky gator below, notice how all of the tusks have disappeared. (01:03:55)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Jamal and Dave's cruiser is pursuing Klaus and Claudia through the city streets during "Diamond Dolls," you can see that it has a particular sequence of flashing beacon lights up top: a pair of red lights above the driver's side and a pair of blue on the passenger's side. But pretty soon there's a crash at the four way intersection and, once they notice it, each pair of colored lights has switched sides temporarily. (01:08:25)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Klaus and Claudia greet the Chipmunks and Chipettes at the airport after their light orange balloon crashes to the ground, Alvin threatens them with a harpoon having two red feathers attached near the tip. But in the next shot no feathers are hanging from the harpoon, and the balloon has temporarily changed its color to light purple. Suddenly Simon notices a garbage hatch on the plane and grabs the harpoon from Alvin, but now there are two green feathers on it instead. (01:05:55)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When the Chipmunks and Chipettes are nearing the airport, they turn around and notice a plane approaching. Stuck to their balloon's basket are several harpoons, but as the plane's wing sends the balloon careening towards the ground, all of the harpoons have vanished. (01:05:35)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: About 10 minutes into the movie, the chipmunks and chippettes first meet Claus and Claudia. Claudia is wearing a pink outfit, so to match, she is wearing pink lipstick and nail polish (when she and Claus are sitting together). But when they do meet the chipmunks, her lipstick and nail polish turn red and stay red for the remainder of the scene.paigeeyxox
Continuity mistake: As Claudia pedals on her stationary bicycle, a call comes in from Mexico. So she picks up the phone and you can see how a cord is attached near the microphone. When the shot changes to Klaus tanning in his booth, Claudia is visible through its window - but now she's talking on a cordless phone instead. (00:23:55)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When Alvin and Brittany are in Athens, they start arguing over who's the hottest act in rock and roll. Notice how he's standing next to a green stool in front of some wooden containers loaded with grapes and apples. But after Alvin says "No you don't!", Brittany loses her cool and walks over to challenge him. However he's suddenly off-screen somewhere and nowhere near the fruit stand. (00:34:10)ryguy_1983
Continuity mistake: When you first see the arcade that the kids are playing you can see the Chippettes are winning on the map and they are going through Asia, but when you see it again a few shots later, they are flying around Europe.
