Visible crew/equipment: When Dave enters the kitchen and finds the bowl of cheese balls, the chipmunks run and hide themselves under some bowls on the other counter. Then Dave leaves the kitchen and the chipmunks start to move along the counter whilst still under the bowls. The first time the bowls come to a stop (and Dave turns to look, etc) in the close-up as the bowls are coming to a stop, you can actually see the white string that was being used to make them move along; if you look then you can see it more easily to the side of the red bowl.

Visible crew/equipment: When Dave first discovers that the chipmunks can sing, as they perform on the tree stump outside his window for him, after they sing 'Funky Town' there is a shot from outside looking through the window and to the right of Dave (through the window) you can see the long pole of the boom microphone; it is not seen in any other shots.

Visible crew/equipment: After Dave has retrieved all of his musical equipment and instruments from the rain outside, there is a shot of him wiping his damp keyboard down with a towel. In this shot if you look in the glass door behind Dave, you can see the hands of a crewmember and the long boom microphone that he is holding, reflected in the glass hovering above Dave. (00:18:20)

Alvin and the Chipmunks mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Once the chipmunks are inside the food cupboards, they begin to devour everything inside. Theodore is seen chewing off a corner of a box of Lucky Charms cereal and eating the cereal that pours from the hole. But a few shots later when the same box of cereal can be seen, the hole that Theodore gnawed from the corner of the box is gone and the corner is fully intact. (00:11:00)

More trivia for Alvin and the Chipmunks

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.
