Product Description

The Bellas, an all-girl singing group thriving on female pop songs and their perfect looks, are forced to regroup after an epic fail at last year’s final. Among the new recruits is freshman Beca (Anna Kendrick, Twilight), an independent, aspiring DJ with no interest in the college life. But after getting to know the group of oddballs and misfits, including Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson, Bridesmaids), Beca has a new outlook and takes it upon herself to help the Bellas find their new look and sound and get back into the competition. Full of hilarious jokes, witty one-liners and awesome music, Pitch Perfect is the ultimate feel-good comedy.

Review

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Aca-awesome 9 Dec 2012
Format:DVD
I love a good musical film and TV shows like Glee so when I saw the trailer for Pitch Perfect at the cinema, I knew it was something that I had to go see. The trailer was funny and only showed clips of songs sung so it didn't really give too much away. The plot is pretty basic and quite predictable but that's normally what you get with this kind of film anyway. In a made up university, different a cappella groups battle it out for places in the national championships and to prove which group is the best in the university.

Anna Kendrick has begun to do quite well for herself since having a small part in the Twilight films. I really liked her in What to Expect When You're Expecting and because of that, it made me want to watch this film even more. Kendrick plays main character Beca, who can be described as alternative compared to the other girls at this particular university. She has a strong interest in making her own mixes of music and generally walks around with a big pair of headphones on. Beca is a witty and outspoken character which I liked about her. She isn't afraid to state her mind when she thinks she can make something better or thinks that something is wrong. Kendrick was really good in this role and played in perfectly.

Being a film about musical groups, there is quite a large cast. From The Bellas, next to Kendrick, Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson shine in particular. Snow plays one of the leaders of the group and is one of the nicer girls while Wilson plays Fat Amy, a larger Australian girl. I loved the character of Fat Amy so much because she was just hilarious. She has some amazingly funny lines throughout the whole film. Actually, she was probably my favourite character in the whole film and now I want to see more of what she has been in.

3.0 out of 5 stars An alright film, but definitely over-hyped 2 Jan 2014
By Laura Hartley TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I started watching this film with very high expectations. My friends and many critics had raved about how good this film was and I was excited to finally see the film from which the infamous 'cup song' had originated. Unfortunately, with every passing minute of this film, my expectations dropped lower and lower until the point where I was thoroughly bewildered by all the praise this film had received. This is, by no means, a bad film. It is; however, full of clichés with a poorly developed plot line that tries to pack too much in to too little time.

Pitch Perfect is the story of two a cappella groups from Barden University: The Barden Bellas and the Treblemakers. The treblemakers are seen as the best of the best, consistently winning the southeastern regional competition and while the Barden Bellas are good, they've faced a few hiccups along the way. New freshman Beca, played by Anna Kendrick, is a rebellious teenager who just wants to move to LA to pursue a career in music and DJing but she is forced to endure one year of college before her father will let her go. Seeing that Beca has not made any effort to make friends or join any societies within the first month at Barden University, her father says that she must join at least one society or the deal is off. Caught singing in the shower, Beca is recruited into the Barden Bellas but her rebellious nature grates on the Aubrey, the leader of the Bellas. At the same time, Beca's friend from the college radio, Jesse, becomes a Treblemaker, but the Bellas are strictly forbidden by Aubrey to have any sort of relationship with the Treblemakers lest they should lose their place as part of the group.

5.0 out of 5 stars cheesy but funny. 9 April 2013
Format:DVD
At the end of the day we all know what we're going to get from this film.

Yes, the plot is predictable, but there are some serious laugh out loud moments in there.

Films like Pitch Perfect aren't everyone's cup of tea, I love them because they're so cheesy, and with the added bonus of songs you end up singing along to.

So if you want laughs, cheesy romance and some good songs to sing to, this film is for you. If not, well don't watch it. Simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aca-awesome! 9 April 2013
Format:DVD
I went to see this in the cinema, dragging my musical hating friends along with me. Within the first 5 minutes we were all rocking with laughter in our seats, spilling coke and popcorn. The singing actually takes a backdrop to the story with an amazing soundtrack. I went to see the film 3 times in the cinema with different groups of friends and I have been waiting waiting waiting for this to come out on DVD!!!! I would recommend it to anyone- even my dad loved it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're not sure whether to buy it.... 12 April 2013
By k
Format:DVD
I have no idea why people would rate it 1 star!
If you like music, and you like comedy, this is amazing.
Obviously the people who don't like this film only like serious, drama films.Yes, it doesn't have any strong meaning and won't change your life forever but it is a really fun, easy watch and it makes you want to watch it again.
if unsure, you have to get this film to see for yourself and if you have a good sense of humour, then guarenteed you will enjoy it.
5 star!! :-D

5.0 out of 5 stars I HAVE NODES! 14 May 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The film opens showing us competing collegiate A Cappella groups. The announcers are very snarky which sets the humorous tone for the movie.

Female announcer(Elizabeth Banks): "Nothing makes a woman feel more like a girl then a man singing like a boy."

Male announcer (John Michael Higgins): " Women are about as good at A Cappella as they are at being doctors."

There is some battle of the sexes banter always going on.

The action then picks up for the following year's recruitment at Barden University. The main focus is on Rebecca (Anna Kendrick from "Twilight"). She is the daughter of a college professor who wants to be a music producer and arranger. She is pursued by Jesse (Skylar Astin) who wants to score movies. They end up in rival groups who all seem to have pun names, i.e. "The Treble Makers" or "The Minstrel Cycles". The language they speak to each other is also punny such as getting "pitch slapped."

The female group is lead by Aubrey (Anna Camp) who wants to do the same songs over and over again to the dismay of Rebecca and the snarky judges. The movie is predictable and pretentious. It is a film designed for a female teen audience, although I was able to enjoy it as well. Anna Kendrick's make-up was perfect throughout the film, a flawless beauty. The singing and choreography was enjoyable and professional. Perhaps the best scene was early in the film when they had a "riff-off" when competing A Cappella groups ad lib songs in "battle" against each another.

The diverse female characters, such as "Fat Amy"(Rebel Wilson) made the film enjoyable. A film you can watch with your teen/preteen daughter and not get too embarrassed.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Sexual innuendos. Some adult/teen language.
