Errors in geography 

(at around 52 mins) What Alvin refers to as a honey badger is in fact a meerkat, neither of which are native to the South Pacific. Meerkats are native to sub-Saharan Africa, while honey badgers are native to Africa, the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent.

Factual errors 

When Simon takes on a French personality he calls himself Simone. If he were French, his name would not change to Simone unless his personality were also female, which it's not. Simone is the female French form of Simon. Simon in French is spelled the same as it is in English, but pronounced see-MAWn. Simone, on the other hand, is said see-MON like it is said in the movie,
