This 2007 movie will soon be a holiday classic! Growing up I clearly remember watching Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas special and loved the songs. This movie features one of my chipmunk songs "Christmas Don't Be Late" and a lot of new songs to fit current day.
I highly recommend this movie to all; you will laugh and maybe even cry!
It all starts in the forest, in a tree where Alvin, Simon and Theodore live. Their tree is cut down and taken to a high rise office building to be set up as a holiday tree in LA. Next, the Chipmunks meet struggling songwriter David "Dave" Seville who had his latest song rejected by JETT Records executive Ian Hawke, who was Dave's college roommate.
Dave once had a relationship with his next door neighbor, Claire Wilson. She broke up with him because she felt he was too busy and irresponsible and he had no time for her.
After winding up at Dave's interview, they hop into his basket and follow him home. Once at home, he discovers the Chipmunks, and is accidentally knocked unconscious. Upon waking, he kicks them out until hearing them sing. Dave then makes a deal with them- they sing the songs he writes, and in exchange he provides food and shelter for them. However, all does not go well, as Dave's job presentation is ruined by their coloring on it, and when Alvin tries to set the mood for his dinner with Claire, things become weird and she rejects him after he tells her his life has been ruined by them. To make it up to Dave, Alvin, Simon and Theodore go to Ian.
Once the Chipmunks sing Dave's song to Ian, Ian instantly signs them to the label and rehires Dave the next day. After a few singles, the Chipmunks become wildly popular. When Dave expresses concern for their well-being and insists that the Chipmunks are "kids" who don't need so much craziness in their lives, Ian convinces the Chipmunks that Dave is holding them back.
I will not spoil the ending of the movie but, it does have a happy ending!
