* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/74104 This flash animation]] portrays the Chipmunks as gangsta rappers who rant about how Dave treated them like garbage behind the scenes. The funny thing about this is that, minus the gangsta rapping, some people see Dave and the Chipmunks as a DysfunctionalFamily long before it was even made.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: The second movie saw the Chipmunks attending high school (and behaving as such), singing mostly modern pop tunes, and spouting lines from such films as "Silence Of The Lambs".

* WTHCastingAgency: Some felt this way about Justin Long getting cast as the voice of Alvin, since the inevitable voice modulation would make his voice unrecognizable.

** ''Chipwrecked'', which received mostly negative reviews and even David Cross went on the record of saying that just the making of the movie was the most unpleasant experience he'd ever had.

* WhatAnIdiot:
** Had Ian played his cards right and learned from the [[JerkAss mistakes]] [[MoralEventHorizon he]] [[OnlyInItForTheMoney made]] in the first movie, not only would the Chipettes have remained on his side, but he would have most likely won out in the end.
** In real life, many had this response toward Fox for putting the fourth film up against ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', the first ''Franchise/StarWars'' movie in a decade.

* UnderminedByReality: The first movie has a story/moral in which the three chipmunks realize 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 MerchandiseDriven, 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.

* HarsherInHindsight: In "The Squeakel", Alvin says to Ian "In the words of The Donald, you're fired!" Fast forward eight years, and said Donald is famous for trying to ban Muslims from America, justifying the actions of white supremacists, banning trans people from the army, lusting for his daughter, and the phrase "grab 'em by the pussy".

* SeasonalRot: During the DiC era of the series, the stories, as well as the overall production, slowly, yet steadily, grew weaker and weaker, compared to the quality of the earlier, Ruby-Spears era.

* ValuesDissonance: "ALLLVIIIIN!!!!" In the 60s, it was a harmless gag. In the new millennium, it sounds indicative of parental abuse. It's remained a staple of each installment regardless.

** The break in "Ragtime Cowboy Joe" had Alvin playing around with a gun. Unthinkable if the song came out in TheNewTens.
