(at around 52 mins) There is also a reference to the honey badger YouTube video uploaded by czg123. While hauling a load of bark, Alvin meets a creature and says "You're one of those honey badgers.

As of 2018 this is the first and only live action film from 20th Century Fox released during the 2010's to be rated G by the MPAA since all the other live actions films released during that decade were rated PG PG-13 and R.
It was said at one point that the film would be in 3D, but for unknown reasons, it was charged to just a 2D release. Although it could have been just a rumor, there are several moments in the film where characters or thing fly close to the screen (such as in the scene where the chipmunks fight over a mango, or the final musical number.), like the film was meant to be in 3D.
