Alvin and the Chipmunks

Tagline: Here comes trouble.

The story begins in a hill backdrop in a forest during the summer. Three chipmunks named Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Theodore (Jesse McCartney) are singing Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day”. They complain about the food storage when Alvin accidentally empties their stock, because the storage space was full and Alvin accidentally fell into the hole, resulting in all the nuts flying out.

Alvin complained about his own tough life and even called their tree a “stupid tree”, then the tree is chopped down (with the unfortunate trio on it). But while chopping, as the tree shakes, the Chipmunks thought that Alvin had made the tree angry. The tree is netted down to a truck and driven to a city in the process of becoming a Christmas tree. Meanwhile, struggling songwriter David “Dave” Seville (Jason Lee) submits a song to JETT records, but is rejected by JETT executive Ian Hawke (David Cross), who says he hates Dave’s latest song.

Jason Lee (“My Name Is Earl”) will star as David Seville in the CG/live-action hybrid film, based on the 1950s cartoon series about chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Theodore, who lay waste to Seville’s surroundings and sing in three-part harmony.
