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...
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 had a lot of fun watching this with my best friends, but Pitch Perfect has a lot of problems. I was pretty disappointed that they didn't really try anything new or interesting and chose to stick with a formula that we've all seen before: lovable but surly outcast is forced to try something new (in this case, she joins an a capella group at her college), rescues the pitiful group from complete and utter failure, and falls in love with a cute boy.
What kept me entertained was Fat Amy, played by the talented Rebel Wilson. Every time she opened her mouth something surprisingly hilarious came out. The singing was hit and miss, but for me the price of…
I must admit, I can't give this film a proper review because I couldn't make it all the way through it.
My wife liked it so she convinced me to watch it, telling me it's basically a spoof of Glee. I've never had any desire to watch Glee but I know what it's all about. The reason I couldn't get through this film is because about 30 minutes in it felt like exactly what I would expect from Glee, and had all of the things in it that keeps me from watching that show. Tons of singing, (I hate musicals) annoying characters, and I simply wasn't finding any of it funny. My wife claims it gets a little better but I just couldn't stand to watch anymore of it.
Pitch Perfect is formulaic and both the directing and writing are stale as there are less than a handful of jokes that really work. It doesn’t do anything different than other films of the genre making the story completely predictable. Overall it works though due to attractive, likeable leads and music that is at least catchy at a minimum.
Ich halte Tanzfilme ja seit eh und jeh für das "Rosemunde Pilcher" pubertierender Mädchen. Während ich jedem (Sub-) Genre zuspreche echte Perlen hervorgebracht zu haben, so kann ich mit Tanz- und Gesangfilmen doch so wirklich gar nichts anfangen.
Nachdem mir der Pitch Perfekt als Genreparodie nun aber des häufigeren ans Herz gelegt worden ist, musste ich dem Streifen eine Chance geben.
Doch wenn eine Gruppe aus Außenseitern sich zu einer Akapella Band verbindet um die arroganten Champions vom Thron zu stoßen, dann klingt das eher nach einer Handlung die meine Vorurteile unterstreicht.
Zwar hat der Film einige durchaus lustige Momente, verfällt aber spätestens nach dem ersten Drittel in die bekannten Muster ohne Überraschungen. Vielleicht ist es aber auch einfach schwierig…
Jason Moore "crushed it".
Bring it On for a younger generation.
A very necessary film.
The characters are oddly likeable in this.
Like 'Bring it On' or 'Mean Girls' before it, I had my preconceptions shaken by this tightly written, genuinely charming, actually funny, and eminently well cast comedy/musical. Props go to the ensemble cast, who each manage to have a good dose of screen-time, and enough charisma to share the screen with the central story. The musical arrangement is also excellent, and the shout-out to the 'Breakfast Club' wins over the 80s born film geek in me.
Not an oscar winner, but eminently enjoyable, and absolutely rewatchable.

Not crazy bad, but Rebel Wilson is pretty much the only good thing about this.
Aubrey: What's your name?
Fat Amy: Fat Amy.
Aubrey: You call yourself Fat Amy?
Fat Amy: Yeah, so twig bitches like you don't do it behind my back.
Glee meets Bring It On, with a little pinch of Mean Girls and a huge nod to The Breakfast Club.
Unexpectedly hilarious and not obnoxious. Didn't give me a ''toner'' as the music generally sucks... but it's quite fun nonetheless.

Beca: Tell me, what does Judd Nelson eat for breakfast?
Jesse: Oh, well, like all misunderstood rebels, he feeds on hypocrisy.
