The tree that the chipmunks Alvin (voiced by Justin Long), Simon (voiced by Matthew Gray Gubler) and Theodore (voiced by Jesse McCartney) live in is cut down and driven to Los Angeles to become a Christmas tree. Once in LA, the Chipmunks meet struggling songwriter David "Dave" Seville (Jason Lee) who had his latest song rejected by JETT Records executive Ian Hawke (David Cross), who was Dave's college roommate. Dave once had a relationship with his next door neighbor, Claire Wilson (Cameron Richardson). She broke up with him because she felt he was too busy and irresponsible and he had no time for her.
After winding up at Dave's interview, they hop into his basket and follow him home. Once at home, he discovers the Chipmunks, and is accidentally knocked unconscious. Upon waking, he kicks them out until hearing them sing. Dave then makes a deal with them- they sing the songs he writes, and in exchange he provides food and shelter for them. However, all does not go well, as Dave's job presentation is ruined by their coloring on it, and when Alvin tries to set the mood for his dinner with Claire, things become weird and she rejects him after he tells her his life has been ruined by them. To make it up to Dave, Alvin, Simon and Theodore go to Ian.
Once the Chipmunks sing Dave's song to Ian, Ian instantly signs them to the label and rehires Dave the next day. After a few singles, the Chipmunks become wildly popular. When Dave expresses concern for their well-being and insists that the Chipmunks are "kids" who don't need so much craziness in their lives, Ian convinces the Chipmunks that Dave is holding them back.
Eventually, Dave and the Chipmunks have an argument and, in anger, Dave tells them that if they like "Uncle Ian" so much, they should just go live with him. They become enchanted with Ian at first, but once they set off on a coast-to-coast tour, Ian takes advantage of their naivete, changing their image and working them constantly. Meanwhile, Dave misses the chipmunks and he wishes they would come back home. He calls Ian to see if he can talk to the them but Ian refuses, and then conceals Dave's motives from the boys.
Later, the Chipmunks are wearing out, and it is all over the news. Dave, infuriated by what Ian has done to the three, decides to take matters into his own hands by infiltrating their concert at the Los Angeles Orpheum Theater.
Immediately before a big concert, a doctor says that the Chipmunks can't sing because their voices have given out. Ian doesn't want to hand out refunds and orders the Chipmunks to lip sync. With Claire's help, Dave sneaks into the concert, but is grabbed by the security guards. When the Chipmunks see Dave being taken away, they realize they've been tricked, decide that they've had enough of Ian, reveal that they were lip-syncing and run amok, ruining the concert. They are soon caught by Ian just when Dave is about to rescue them. He locks them up in a cage. Dave tries to convince Ian to let the boys go but Ian refuses. Ian then leaves in his limo with the boys and Dave chases them but the boys have already escaped to Dave's car. Dave immediately pulls over and admits that he loves them like his own family. Meanwhile, Ian looks in the cage and sees the boys have replaced themselves with merchandising dolls.
Sometime later, the boys are now part of the family, and they invite Claire over for dinner. Alvin accidentally shorts out the circuits trying to open champagne. Dave decides not to say it, but it causes a blackout in the kitchen. Dave decides to say it, and receives his trademark yell "ALLLLVINNN!!", and Alvin responds with "Okay!"

The top album of the decade came from a band now disbanded: ’N Sync.
Billboard magazine says the boy band had the decade’s best-selling album with “No Strings Attached,” which sold more than 10 million copies.
The song of the decade was Mariah Carey’s ballad “We Belong Together.” Eminem was named artist of the decade, while Nickelback was named top group.
For 2009, Taylor Swift had the best-selling album with “Fearless,” while the Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” was top song.
Grammy choice yanked
A song performed by Miley Cyrus got a Grammy nomination – then was taken out of the running days later.
The 17-year-old singer’s single “The Climb” – which spent 15 weeks atop Billboard’s pop chart and was featured in “Hannah Montana: The Movie” – is no longer up for Grammy consideration for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture.
The Recording Academy declared the song, which Cyrus didn’t write, ineligible after Walt Disney Records officials verified the song wasn’t written specifically for the film.
The category will be filled with the song that garnered the Grammys’ next-highest votes: “All Is Love,” by Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, written for “Where The Wild Things Are.”
Filling out the category are “Jai Ho,” from “Slumdog Millionaire”; “Decode” from “Twilight”; “Once In A Lifetime” from “Cadillac Records”; and “The Wrestler” from “The Wrestler.”

Tilda Swinton stars in director Erick Zonca's drama about a 40-year-old alcoholic who, in a rare moment of sobriety, sees where her life is headed and makes one last-ditch attempt to steer herself away from the disastrous path that she has been locked on for as far back as she can remember. Julia may be manipulative, notoriously untrustworthy, and completely incapable of uttering any word that isn't an outright lie, but somehow -- perhaps due to sheer charisma -- this statuesque deceiver has always managed to get by. But Julia has been hardened by too many vodkas and too many one-night stands, and lately the lonely life of drifting from job to job in her 1979 Chrysler New Yorker has left her wanting something more. While her old boyfriend Mitch occasionally tries to break through Julia's haze, lately she has surrendered herself to the fact that she is simply one of life's losers. As her finances begin to run short and panic begins to set in, a desperate Julia turns to crime but is forced to go on the run with a young boy named Tom after her plan falls hopelessly apart. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

a bit of the movies. check tis out guys
Shot 1: A nice aerial view of the coast, over La Push beach. Pretty enough to rival any of Catherine Hardwicke's beautiful outdoor shots from the first film.
Shot 2: Bella's iconic truck pulls up in front of Charlie's house.
Shot 3: Bella looks into Edward's eyes: "It's my birthday. Can I ask you something?"
Shot 4: A close-up of Kristen Stewart: "Kiss me." How awesome is that arched eyebrow? Better watch out, Dwayne Johnson; KStew is muscling in on your territory!
Shot 5: Edward leans in. Look out, ladies!
Shot 6: Bella drops the bomb: "I love you." Is this next year's Best Kiss nominee?
Shot 7: A contemplative Edward explains: "You're my only reason to stay ... alive. If that's what I am."
Shot 8: Here's the moment we've all been waiting for: the birthday scene! Alice (Ashley Greene) leads Bella down the stairs of the Cullen home, exclaiming, "It's time! It's time!" Wow, Dr. Cullen must be bringing in some serious doctor cash to afford all those candles!
Shot 9: We can see returning favorites Carlisle (Peter Facinelli), Emmett (Kellan Lutz), Rosalie (Nikki Reed) and Esme (Elizabeth Reaser) crowd around Bella to give her hugs and kisses. Alice stands in the background, snapping photos. Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) also stands at a distance, for a far different reason. "Happy birthday, Bella!" Esme exclaims. "Let's open your presents!"
Shot 10: "There's a cake too." Is there ever! Whoever made that thing needs to get themselves on that "Ace of Cakes" show, stat.
Shot 11: "Alice, that cake could feed 50!" Bella says. "You guys don't even eat." Take note of Jasper's hair in the background, as well as Rosalie's curls. Both look so much better than in the first movie, don't you think?
Shot 12: Alice hands over an innocent-seeming gift. Look out, Bella!
Shot 13: Unlucky number 13 brings us a pivotal moment in Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" universe. As she goes to open her gift, Bella slices open her finger, drawing blood.
Shot 14: The klutzy Bella throws down her gift, raises her finger and utters three words you do not want to say around vampires: "Ow, paper cut."
Shot 15: A few drops of blood fall onto the Cullen's floor, all over their nice Berber carpet!
Shot 16: And this is why you don't want to bleed around the Cullens. Springing to life for the first time in the series, we finally see why struggling-vegetarian Jasper has kept his distance from Bella. He runs in super-slo-mo toward the camera.
Shot 17: Edward looks up to see his bloodthirsty brother approaching, as a look of fear washes across his face. Bella doesn't even have time to notice.
Shot 18: With his superhuman speed, Edward shoves Bella out of the way, into the table.
Shot 19: Edward shoves Jasper toward the other end of the room, sending him flying through the air and crashing down into a piano. Wow, home-furnishing salesmen in Forks are going to make a bundle after this party!
Shot 20: Bella looks up in horror; Edward seems like he's about to cry. "What happened with Jasper was nothing," she insists.
Shot 21: Back in the woods, Edward lays down the law. "[It was] nothing compared to what could have happened. I promise to never put you through anything like this again."
Shot 22: Bella looks on at an anguished Edward. "This is the last time you'll ever see me," he says. Take a look at RPattz's face — damn, that's some acting!
Shot 23: Edward gives Bella one last kiss on the forehead ... and then he's gone.
Shot 24: Realizing her predicament, Bella is alone in the woods. She lies down on the ground, clutching the dirt, breathing heavily.
Shot 25: Edi Gathegi in the house! "How much could you mean to him if he left you here?" the vampire Laurent asks, his red eyes ablaze much more effectively than how we saw the vamps in the last movie. "Unprotected." Remember how Laurent was all conflicted and happy to help the Cullens in the first film? Yeah, he ain't doing that anymore.
Shot 26: As Bella stands in a clearing, Laurent circles her like a dog eyeballing a chew toy. "But I can't help myself. You are so ... mouth-watering!" I can already imagine that catchphrase on a million T-shirts.
Shot 27: As Laurent caresses her hair, Bella gets ready to become lunch. Keep in mind that at this point in the film, both she and Edward (who is far, far away) are so despondent that they're almost suicidal.
Shot 28: Whoa, what's Fabio doing in this movie? No, wait — it's none other than Taylor Lautner, the little Jacob from the first film showing off his newly acquired 30 pounds of muscle.
Shot 29: The newly jacked Jacob springs into action as Laurent raises his hands to Bella. Note that although Bella is in danger, it appears as though Jacob took the time to put his shirt back on before coming to her rescue. Maybe he burns easily, and the sun is a bit strong.
Shot 30: The anticipation builds as Laurent hesitates and Bella takes off.
Shot 31: Bella runs toward Jacob, screaming what sounds like, "Jake! Run!" But she doesn't know that the money shot is coming, and sure enough, we get our first glimpse of Jacob in all his shape-shifting glory. Turning into a wolf, he leaps over Bella and in front of Laurent. Check out the shreds of clothing, falling to the ground around him. Coolness.
Shot 32: As Jacob lets out a ferocious roar, the title card washes across the screen: "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." You may now proceed with your "OME" shrieks.
this summary here i got from www mtv.com for more detail, just log on to the web site okay.
i guess u guys want to see the real actor in this movie aite? here we go..
May 27, 2009: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson filming a scene for 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' in Montepulciano, Italy where their characters Bella and Edward are reunited and share a passionate kiss.
Taylor Lautner aka the wolf guy aka Jacob.
this guy make every single girl who watch this film goes crazy around him.. i think maybe because of his look? maybe.. or he is damn sexy? ( ya rite) lol..
here is some update about this guy.
did u guys know this 17-year-old, who played Jacob in this movie packed on nearly 30 pounds of muscle to play Jacob Black again?
OMG! just for the role? lol.. really good.. he played well in this movie..
wooohoooo.. she is hot aite guys? lol.
Kristen Stewart's growing up as she matures into the role of Bella in New Moon. But she confesses it took a while for her to stop stumbling figuratively, and mumbling literally, while trying to explain herself during her first go-round with Twilight last year.
23-year-old star has taken on - playing troubled youth Tyler Roth in Remember Me alongside Emilie de Ravi. Remember Me?
lol.. here it goes again.. Robert new film! ahaha.. cant wait to see this film. At first glance, fans might mistake this shot of Robert as his pensive New Moon character Edward Cullen.
But there is one big difference; this time round there are absolutely no vampires or werewolves in sight.
That's because the latest pictures of the British heart-throb – currently the hottest young actor on the movie circuit thanks to his role in Twilight – show him in a different light, in this upcoming romantic drama.
