Through a series of misunderstandings, Alvin, Simon and Theodore come to believe that Dave is going to propose to his new girlfriend in New York City… and dump them. They have three days to get to him and stop the proposal, saving themselves not only from losing Dave but possibly from gaining a terrible stepbrother.
The film begins with Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler), and Theodore (Jesse McCartney), along with The Chipettes – Brittany (Christina Applegate), Jeanette (Anna Faris) and Eleanor (Kaley Cuoco) – setting up a surprise birthday bash for Dave (Jason Lee) that also serves as a going away party for The Chipettes, who are moving out on their own to be guest judges on American Idol. Alvin invites and hires many people and celebrities to the dismay of Simon, before Dave returns home in dissatisfaction.
Nevertheless, Dave agrees to take them to mini-golf, and meet the woman he has been dating for the past few months. While the Chipmunks like Samantha (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), her son Miles (Josh Green) is a bully who physically abuses the trio. Later, the Chipmunks find an engagement ring in a bag Dave brought home and believe that he’s going to propose to Samantha. They try to steal the ring but are unsuccessful.
Dave has to produce a record for rising pop artist Ashley Grey (Bella Thorne) in Miami and decides to bring Samantha along with him. The Chipmunks and Miles are staying together, but they agree to head to Miami to sabotage the proposal. The Chipmunks drug three squirrels and dress them up in their clothes to fool their hard of seeing neighbor Ms. Price (Jennifer Coolidge), who was tasked with looking after them. The Chipmunks travel on a plane, but Theodore lets out several animals which cause an emergency landing and brings the ire of Air Marshall James Suggs (Tony Hale), who has a personal vendetta against the Chipmunks (Suggs’ girlfriend left him while “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)” played in the background).
