Get Pitch Slapped
A comedy set in the middle of a war between rival a cappella groups and centered on a rebellious girl who joins one of the groups as an escape from her unhappy life at school.
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…
I have a weakness for singing movies.
And Anna Kendrick gives me a boner.
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…
I would like to thank
Anna Kendrick's cleavage
For completely making this movie
Never gets old.
one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. Ridiculous
About three stars better than I thought it would be. Anna Kendrick is cute as a button.
Found this film to be generic with boring characters and even more boring humor. Either I just didn't enjoy the singing or don't think the same vomit joke done multiple times is funny, this movie just wasn't right for me.
Acapella puns get laughs 9 out of 10 times.
It was still as funny as the first time, if not more.
Nobody made me watch this. I did it of my own accord. I picked it up from next to the DVD player ahead of THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, ADAPTATION and several others. Seriously.
I liked it.
[Anna Kendrick is ace]
Dieser Film entspricht eigentlich überhaupt nicht meinem Beuteschema. Aber auch beim Rewatch hatte ich meinen Spaß. Anna Kendrick ist einfach cool. Bis auf die Kotzszenen sehr unterhaltsam. Guilty Pleasure.
Loses any good will I had for it with it's fake over produced final number.
Sometimes, we watch one film and as soon as it's over, a song gets stuck in our heads that we…
