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.
It's got cool songs.
Pitch Perfect isn't quite a pitch perfect movie, but it's pretty fun.
I've seemingly lost count how many times I've seen Pitch Perfect now...
The dialogue is just so razored; it thrashes and whips with equal glee and bitterness which still surprises no matter how many times viewed.
I think it has become my go-to film whenever a mood boost is required - few flicks are this funny, smart, quotable and most importantly rewatchable.
Seriously Anna Kendrick is the best too - I want to take her out for a beer.
There is hardly a reason imaginable why I should even be mildly interested in Pitch Perfect, because I'm not a huge fan of this type of college comedy and dislike a capella singing including most if not all the songs selected. The story isn't a real showstopper in terms of originality either. It has the snobby pretty girls, the alternative - yet all too obviously beautiful - girl who doesn't fit in at the beginning, the geeky kid, the heartthrob, and comedic relief from a girl calling herself Fat Amy.
So why did I end up liking this one as much as I did? Well, one of the reasons probably is Anna Kendrick, who gives her rebelliously unoriginal rebel enough…
I love this movie and Cannot wait until I see the 2nd. one
