Everyone loves musical smackdowns--and Pitch Perfect is full of great ones. Pitch Perfect is like Bring It On crossed with the Step Up movies, flavored with a heavy dose of TV's Glee and the Straight No Chaser boys. All of this is set appealingly on a college campus, with charming actors and a very funny script that will entertain fans, truly, from 10 to 90.
The plot in Pitch Perfect follows the character of college freshman Beca (a delightful Anna Kendrick) as she decides to join her school's a cappella women's singing group. (Unlike on Glee, where the glee club is populated with outcasts, college a cappella groups are prestigious--and hard to get into.) Fellow singers include Brittany Snow as Chloe and Alexis Knapp as Stacie, a student who's hilariously slutty and innocent at the same time. The faculty coordinator is Anna Camp, so memorable in The Help, and here both earnest and a bit naive. There's also a potential love story between Beca and Jesse (Skylar Astin), a member of the male group at the same school.
And the script, by sometime 30 Rock writer Kay Cannon, is witty, wry, and just silly enough. The rest of the time, the singing and music and routines take center stage, as everyone wants them to. Pitch Perfect is a surprisingly fresh and smart take on young adulthood, with a soundtrack that will have you cheering. --A.T. Hurley
This quite the worst film I have seen ten minutes of for years. I wanted to cancel it but Amazon having messed up my Prime membership still charged me £6.99 for it. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Mr. Jeffrey Kershaw
