* EpilepticTree: The Chipmunks and Chipettes grew to human size after coming in contact with the same chemical that mutated [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the Ninja Turtles]] (which makes sense, as both series' 80s incarnations were produced by Murakami-Wolf-Swenson, although they only did this series for a few EPs).

*** Not only that, but the human girls actually reciprocate his advances.

Added DiffLines:

* AccidentallyAccurate: To further distinguish chipmunk from chipmunk during the first part of the movie, Alvin and Theodore's eyes are recolored brownish-amber and green, respectively, while Simon keeps his blue eyes. Blue eyes are said to be the weakest common eye color and more likely to need glasses than green or brown.

* BaseBreaker:
** Dave Seville is either a kind hearted man who loves his family but gives them tough love or an annoying father who treats them like garbage. The above parody (See AlternateCharacterInterpretation) hasn't helped this.
** The Chipmunks' transition from human-sized furries to realistic actual-size chipmunks fits here too, despite the overrated box office results.

* NeverLiveItDown: The scene where Simon eats Theodore's droppings is unfortunately one of the first film's better remembered moments.

*NarmCharm: Surprisingly, "The Road Chip" manages to pull this off. WebVideo/AndreTheBlackNerd perfectly describes it in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6SNFstpnWM: this video]]

** Simon eating ''poop''. At least he didn't ''swallow'' it. Double squick.

* 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 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.

* TaintedByThePreview: Some fans who grew up on the 80's cartoon did not gravitate towards the eponymous Chipmunks looking more chipmunk than humanoid, and fans in general were not amused by the poop-eating gag shown in the trailer. Much to the latter's relief, the movie only really had two instances of toilet-humor.

** Had Ian played his cards right and learned from the [[JerkAss mistakes]] [[MoralEventHorizon he]] [[MoneyDearBoy 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.
