Alvin and the Chipmunks 2


[media] ... WS1K-5pGhg[/media]

During the Chipmunks' benefit concert in Paris, France, David Seville (Jason Lee) is badly injured after a falling billboard sends him flying across the stage into electric devices.

After the accident, Dave is rushed to the hospital. Even though he survives, he must stay to recuperate, leaving his Aunt Jackie to look after the Chipmunks, while arrangements are also made for them to go to school.

Arriving at the L.A. airport, the Chipmunks meet up with Jackie, who introduces her grandson, Toby Seville (Zachary Levi). After Jackie falls down a staircase and a luggage trolley crashes into her, she, too, is sent to a hospital, leaving Toby in charge.

Meanwhile, Ian Hawke (David Cross), now unemployed, now lives in the basement of JETT Records. A FedEx truck comes around the corner, and a package falls out. Three singing female chipmunks, Brittany (Christina Applegate), Jeanette (Anna Faris) and Eleanor (Amy Poehler), who call themselves the Chipettes, emerge from the package and introduce themselves to Ian. Brittany says that, since Ian made the Chipmunks stars, they want to be stars, too. To prove their talent, they sing "Put Your Records On," and Ian hires them.

During their first day at school, Alvin, Simon and Theodore catch the attention of the females in their class. The jocks grow jealous, physically bullying them and resulting in all parties being sent to the Principal's Office. There, they discover that the Principal, Dr. Rubin, is a huge fan of the Chipmunks. She consequently asks the Chipmunks to save the school’s music programme by representing their school in the Battle of the Bands in exchange for not suspending them. The Chipmunks immediately accept the offer. Meanwhile, when Ian receives his daily newspaper, he is shocked to find the Chipmunks on the front page. After he reads the story, he quickly sends the Chipettes to school.

Tension between Alvin and Simon develops as Alvin begins socialising with the jocks of the school. However, the one who is most affected is Theodore, who believes he is losing his brothers because they are fighting all the time.

When the Chipmunks meet the Chipettes, they gain crushes on their counterparts, but are soon forced to have a rivalry after discovering that they are with Ian. The Chipmunks and the Chipettes compete against each other in the Battle of the Bands. During lunchtime, Alvin meets up with Brittany, sharing a slightly romantic moment with her until he warns her about Ian’s past. Brittany leaves, not believing him. Soon after, Alvin helps the school to win in a football game.

At a the concert, the Chipettes sing "Single Ladies". Ian videotapes the Chipettes performance and posts it on YouTube, along with his phone number. Later, when the Chipmunks have to sing, Alvin fails to show up as he was hanging out with the jocks. This causes Simon and Theodore to forfeit the contest, as they can't sing without Alvin. after the singing, Simon and Theodore said that they can't sing twice without Alvin, they just surrendered. Soon after, the Chipettes win the competition. When Alvin finally reaches on-scene, he finds the school closed and is ignored by his brothers at home. Later, Theodore runs away, leaving a letter in the refrigerator to explain his actions. He escapes to the zoo, where he accidently lands up in the Birds of Prey exhibition. Alvin, Simon and Toby arrive just in time to save him and the four of them make amends with each other.

Soon, the Chipettes are hired as the opening act at a Britney Spears concert at the Staples Center. Unfortunately, the concert is on the same night as the school contest, so Ian decides to blow off the battle and make the Chipettes perform at the concert. However, Jeanette confronts Ian, telling him that they want to go to the school contest. Ian refuses and orders Brittany to sing alone at the concert on stage, with Jeanette and Eleanor acting as back-up. When she refuses, he threatens to send them to a barbecue restaurant.

At the school, the school contest is approaching. Alvin gets a phone call from Brittany, saying that she and her sisters have been imprisoned in a cage. Alvin races to save them on his motorbike while Simon tells Jeanette how to open the cage on the phone. The Chipettes unlock the cage lid with Simon's help before Ian reaches them and manage to escape with Alvin on his bike. On the bike, Brittany apologises to Alvin for not believing him about Ian.

Alvin gets help from Digger, who comes out from the manhole. Ian's limo hit a store. He gleefully gets a RC helicopter. But Alvin has a plan, jumping at the RC. Brittany has a plan: throwing their helmets on Ian. Dropping the remote, Jeanette reaches it, Eleanor throws her shoes in the ground, it hits the bike and it hits Ian's groin. They bid farewell at Ian. Yet, Alvin still calls him Uncle Ian. The Chipmunks are preparing to surrender again, yet Toby sings for them. The Chipettes and Alvin arrive and they all sing "We Are Family". They win the grand prize and save the program.

At the Staples Centre, Ian attempts to impersonate the Chipettes while singing Single Ladies. He is booed off by the crowd and taken away by the security guards.

Back at the school, The Chipmunks and Chipettes sing ‘Shake your Groove Thing’ and all of the students dance.

Meanwhile, Dave takes the Chipettes and they now sleep in a 3-tied bunk bed in each side, the Chipmunks in the left and the Chipettes in the right. They wish good night to their own counterparts. Alvin refuses to sleep and turns on/off the lights at Dave. He trips over Alvin's board and Alvin goes to sleep. He then yells "ALVIN!". The Chipmunks and the Chipettes photos can be seen in the credits.

The post credits show the jocks cleaning bleachers with Dr. Rubin watching them.

An epilogue shows Ian being thrown into a dumpster backstage by the guards and being sent into a dump.
