10 Biggest Christmas Blockbusters of All Time

7. Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
Year released: 2009
Christmas Day take: $13.9 million

How do you beat Disney's The Princess and the Frog and A Christmas Carol during the same holiday season? Dumb down the jokes even below the child standard, throw in high-pitched karaoke versions of Beyonce's Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) and Katy Perry's Hot n Cold and watch the stockings fill with cash.

Kids loved it, but even parents who didn't got some pleasant surprises from the cast. Christina Applegate and SNL and Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler as Chipettes? Arrested Development and Mr. Show's David Cross as a sleazy record exec? The continued participation of ex-skater and Mallrats star Jason Lee? On both sides of the camera, there were plenty of grown-ups tolerating this film for the sake of their kids. The $220 million parents contributed to the cause, however, only ensured the release of Chipmunks 3D two years later.
