Alvin And The Chipmunks

Synopsis: In a tree farm, three musically inclined chipmunks, Alvin, Simon and Theodore, find their tree cut down and sent to Los Angeles. Once there, they meet the frustrated songwriter David Seville, and despite a poor house wrecking first impression, they impress him with their singing talent. Seeing the opportunity for success, both human and chipmunks make a pact for them to sing his songs. While that ambition proves a frustrating struggle with the difficult trio, the dream does come true after all. However, that success presents its own trials as their unscrupulous record executive, Ian Hawke, plans to break up this family to exploit the boys. Can Dave and the Chipmunks discover what they really value amid the superficial glamor around them?

It's going.

It's going.

Maybe we should take a break.

Thats it. I can't take it anymore

I can't. I give up.

I'm sick of struggling for survival .

Against squirrels and earthworms, and which loser

Sparrow who always take my nest.

And we sit at this

stupid.. stupid .. tree.


What's happen?


I think you made it angry.

I'm awake

I'm up.

Dave Seville.




I need pants.

Pants are essential.

How's it going?

I haven't see you since a ...

Well, since you said you

never wanted to see me again,

I guess it work.

- What a fun day that was, huh?

Let me guess,

you're late for something again.

Same old Dave.

- Not following you.

You know, a guy's always fooling around.

He can't handle a serious relationship.

That was the old Dave. How about we

get together and talk about the new Dave over dinner?


- Tomorrow night, my place.


- Great.

You look good Claire.

Where are we?

Well, I think they remodelled a forest.

I like it.

Stylish, Functional.

Where do the nutties go?

Give me a break

We are in the building, Theodore.

Hey, did you ever see

the view from 80th floor ?

They not let me pass the lobby.

- What? I can't...

Hey back off man.

This is Dave Seville.

Mr Seville,

can I offer you for some muffins, scones, pastries?

No. I hate to be bother.

- Really it's no problem. We also have an omelette station.

Omelette station.. huh?

Can i get you some water? or sort of latte?

How about a shot of wheatgrass juice?

Maybe later.


Let's talk about your song, Dave.

Well, it's crazy as it sounds,

the original inspiration came to me..

The song is suck, Dave.


- Your song, it's awful.

I hate it.

I mean,

Justin, Fergie.

Not a chance.

I need something new, I need something fresh.

- That is new. --the next big thing.

Dave, we go way back,


We both come along ways since college.

You.. not so much...

I wanted to like that song.

But, you heard it. Not good.

If I wasn't your friend, I'd say..

Dave you go right back out of this office,

and you keep writing music. You will get there someday..

but I am your friend,

so I am gonna tell you that...

there is no sense in writing songs that no one is ever.. ever going to sing


Excuse me.

Can I get some of that water?

We ran out.

Out of the way.

- Move your butt Theodore.

You step on my tail.

The last one is the door is road kill.
