* CluelessAesop: The first movie has a story/moral in which the three chipmunks realise that fame and fortune is not all it is cracked out to be, and leave the seemingly superficial lifestyle, and the money, behind to enjoy an apparently better down-to-earth life with Dave. Family being more important that materialism is a fairly common aesop... but when one realises that the movie is completely merchandise-driven, and was made to sell tickets, [=CDs=], toys, video games and other merchandise, the moral of turning your back on materialism seems kind of hollow.

** In ''Chipwrecked'', when Ian and Dave are marooned on the island and trying to find food and water, Ian points out that Dave's necklace is edible, but Dave refuses to eat it or let Ian eat it, as it was a gift from Theodore. While Ian does lose points by arguing with Dave over the latter calling Theodore his son, in such desperate times, sentimental value really should take a back seat to survival, so Dave isn't completely in the right.

** The Chipettes don't get much screentime as the 'Munks in ''Road Chip''.


Added DiffLines:

* NeverTrustATrailer: Promos for ''The Squeakquel'' have a bit of this. In a scene as the 'Munks walk down the hallway and meet the 'Ettes for the first time, they notice them onstage singing; in the actual film, the 'Ettes are in the hallway with them, and the shot of them singing was really their number for the sing-off against the 'Munks. Also, one scene has Alvin saying something to the 'Ettes when he actually flirted with some of the women at lunch.
** One scene featured the 'Munks spinning in the blender; a promo shows Dave being agitated and stumbles, already in casts, when really, Dave wasn't around during that scene in the film. He was really annoyed that Alvin won't go to bed, which doesn't happen until [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil the very end of the movie]].

** The fourth one has [[spoiler: Agent Suggs has escaped the elevator the Chipmunks trapped him in and decides to relax by the pool. He's told to leave since it's for hotel guests only, but Suggs refuses and says [[TemptingFate the only way he's leaving is if they carry him off]]. Two security guards are called in and do just that.]]
