Alvin and the Chipmunks

Revealing mistake: When the chipmunks are singing 'How we roll' there is a shot of Ian with some people in a private room. The music continues to play as they listen and the stage is reflected in the glass, how ever the chipmunks, back up singers, dancers, instrument players and audience are missing. (01:17:40)

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning when Dave leaves the record label (after he steals the muffins), downstairs you can see a girl in a pink top, a delivery guy and a black guy in beige boots. The girl in the pink top passes Dave, then it cuts and you see her in front of Dave. Then it cuts again and you see her behind Dave and going around a corner. Also, the guy in the boots does the same thing a few times. And the delivery guy comes up close to the shot in the end, then they show him again just getting close.

Answer: He knew that if he impressed Ian, he and the Chipmunks would become rich and famous. When they froze, he looked like a lunatic who thought animals could talk, making him appear foolish in front of a man who already had little respect for him.
