Alvin and the Chipmunks

Factual error: When Dave hears the message on his voicemail from Claire, telling him that she will be round for dinner at 7 o'clock, he checks the clock and it is 6:30.p.m. However, bright sunlight is pouring through the windows. This film is set around the countdown to Christmas, so at 6:30p.m it should be pitch black outside, or at least slightly dark but definitely not bright sunshine. (00:30:50)

Factual error: When the Chipmunks are going on tour and all of the cities are listed, it says that they're going to "Phoenix - NV" however it's clear they are in Arizona not Nevada, so it should have said "Phoenix - AZ." (01:02:40)

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning when Dave leaves the record label (after he steals the muffins), downstairs you can see a girl in a pink top, a delivery guy and a black guy in beige boots. The girl in the pink top passes Dave, then it cuts and you see her in front of Dave. Then it cuts again and you see her behind Dave and going around a corner. Also, the guy in the boots does the same thing a few times. And the delivery guy comes up close to the shot in the end, then they show him again just getting close.

Question: Throughout the course of the movie, why is Ian so obsessed with making money off the Chipmunks? After all, he lives in a mansion, has an outdoor pool, a nice car, and a group of house servants, and if he has enough money to afford that many extra toys for the Chipmunks when they arrive, any extra diamond or ring shouldn't be a problem for him.

Answer: Ian is a greedy "business man", no matter how much money he has he will always want more.
