Alvin and the Chipmunks

When struggling composer David Seville discovers a trio of talking chipmunks running amuck in his home, he quickly tosses them back out into the rain... until he discovers that they can sing! He strikes a deal with them that the three--Alvin, Simon and Theodore--can stay with him provided that they sing his songs. The chipmunks happily agree and begin to look upon David as a father figure, while David struggles to prevent the chipmunks from inadvertently destroying his personal life. However, when a greedy record producer seeks to exploit 'the boys', David must decide if the three chipmunks have really become his family.
