Get pitch slapped.
College student Beca knows she does not want to be part of a clique, but that's exactly where she finds herself after arriving at her new school. Thrust in among mean gals, nice gals and just plain weird gals, Beca finds that the only thing they have in common is how well they sing together. She takes the women of the group out of their comfort zone of traditional arrangements and into a world of amazing harmonic combinations in a fight to the top of college music competitions.
I have a weakness for singing movies.
And Anna Kendrick gives me a boner.
I need help, I think I’m turning into a teenage girl! First I enjoyed Warm Bodies and now I’ve warmed to the a cappella charms of Pitch Perfect. From the marketing and trailers I was expecting an excruciating two-hour long episode of Glee and, in some ways that is what I got, but rather than making me want to throw things at the television screen in disgust I became invested in the story about a group of collegiate a cappella misfits who try to win the regional finals.
Even after the closing credits had finished rolling I’m still not quite sure why I liked this film as it features so many elements that would normally have me running in the…
Never thought I'd watch this.
Never thought I'd actually kind of enjoy it, either...
It just wasn't for me, as I had predicted. The film itself is a walking cliché and none of the characters are even remotely developed. And (spoiler) I love how the lead actor just accepts that Beca didn't really learn from her mistakes and just had to reference The Breakfast Club to win him over. I honestly felt bad for the guy, but oh well (end of spoiler). But hey, when that woman is Anna Kendrick, I guess you can't blame the guy. Okay, maybe a little.
The music wasn't as auto-tuned as I expected it to be and the characters are fun. But when they tried to be "hip", either with the song choices or the stereotypes, it just…
Review In A Nutshell:
Pitch Perfect is a travesty. An Acapella based musical that banks on the success and "creativity" of Glee. A film that is so lazy in telling an original story that every single step along the way, except for Fat Amy's big reveal during the confession, was predicted.
Characters are so identifiably cliche, that I wasn't able to care for any of their problems whatsoever.
The songs are just painful to the ears; thinking that contemporary pop songs and mixing them with classic pop songs would blend perfectly when executed through an Acapella approach. Maybe I just hate remixing original songs because it demonstrate laziness in creating profit; which is what this film is.
I am so…
Acca-believe it, Pitch Perfect is pretty funny.
As the lazy, gross-out, and quite frankly shit, juggernaut of comedies keeps rolling these days, this is a welcome breakthrough.
It mostly works. It puts a new spin into the generic High School movie story, the songs are great, and its pretty humerous when the fat one is on screen.
Not quite Spinal Tap, but still acca-pretty decent.
I hate to say it but... I really enjoyed this movie. It was entertaining and funny and the music was great. I'm a sucker for musicals especially musical comedies and this one hit both very well. It wasn't a masterpiece by any stretch but it's one I would watch again.
Me singing after watching this: 'I don't want to talk about it' (Stewart, Rod).
Combing two of my favorite things in the world. A Capella music and Anna Kendrick. This movie is very funny and while it can come off as a "chick flick" it actually has a lot that appeals to everyone.
When first hearing about Pitch Perfect, one thought came up in my head thinking “A movie about a capella? How are you gonna make that work?” Well it worked out in an unexpected way because it was surprisingly good.
This really makes a cappella sound really cool and proof positive that it’s becoming a true form of music. Just like Bridesmaids, I love that it kind of leans towards a female audiences that’s a good sign and it is. Good performance from all the girls having a good time with their roles. But Anna Kendrick was aca-perfect as always putting herself in a leading role taking charge being cool as well as Rebel Wilson as Fat Amy stealing every scene…
remember in 2013 when everyone was doing the fuckign cup song
It's been nearly 4 years and I still love this movie. I truly do.
O QUE RAIOS SE PASSA COMIGO? Pitch Perfect é um filme com personagens estereotipados, com um enredo demasiado óbvio e fácil e com clichés podres, e mesmo assim não consegui deixar de gostar dele. Conclusão: mais um guilty pleasure para a minha lista de guilty pleasures. Filhadaputa.
I first watched this movie a couple of years ago and wasn't quite sure why, apart from quite liking Anna Kendrick (or, was in love with Anna Kendrick), and I thought it really looked like too much in the vein of Glee for me to enjoy it.
As it turned out, I absolutely loved this movie and have returned to it many times since. A proper feel good movie and properly hilarious at times while never being afraid of being a bit racy and vulgar at moments. If you can make it through the vomit covered opening scene then you really should know at what level the humour is pitched at throughout.
All of the lead actresses have great moments and are all truly funny with Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson being the obvious stand outs while Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins have some hilarious moments as the commentators of the various a cappella competitions throughout.
