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 still can't get over the ridiculous fact that I actually really like this movie. Maybe it's because I'm kind of in love with Anna Kendrick? Maybe it's because I don't mind chick flicks if done well? Maybe it's because Adam Devine is basically a younger Jack Black? Maybe it's because Skylar Astin is a likeable Dane Cook (kind of a schmoes know reference)? Maybe it's because despite being so predictable and cheesy it's got an undeniable charm to it? I don't know, but probably what shocks me the most is that I actually have hope that the sequel is just as enjoyable and charming as this.

Still one of the best musical comedies ever! Rebel Wilson made this movie! I also loved Anna Camp & Brittany Snow! Too many exclamation points!
It's a pleasant film. The girls have chemistry and charm. However, the story is pretty formulaic, and some of the jokes fall flat. I'd give it three out of five stars. Good but not great.
My sister's favorite movie, which she's been pestering me to watch since it came out, we finally sat down to watch it, and omg!!! This movie is SO cute!! Pretty basic plotline, and totally predictable, but it was funny and enjoyable throughout. It's a quirky sort of film, but every character was ADORABLE.
Just as clever and funny as the first time I saw it, this really does stand up well as a comedy even though it takes a bit of time to get going.
This film served to remind me of three things:
1) My ongoing fascination with Anna Kendrick.
2) The fact that Rebel Wilson can actually be really funny and should probably be in more things, especially considering Melissa McCarthy isn't doing so well right now.
3) I still have yet to get my all-male acapella group The Southamp-tone Mysogonotes together for our first rehearsal...
Coming up on the next episode of The George Sanders Show.
Acca-believe I'm saying this... but this was actually a lot of fun.
Certainly not helping things was my crush on Anna Kendrick. If you too are similarly afflicted, it's best to stay away.
My one complaint? I really hoped they'd do more with the dorm roommate. Something tells me she'll back for the sequel though.
shorty get down...
"They say the glee club is luring stragglers into sniper traps with cheery renditions of hit songs."
"Really? And people fall for that?"
"I mean, I'm all for winning, but let's not resort to cheap ploys."
I don't know why I rated this so highly when i first sawit - less than a year ago - this is a really insufferable and downright unpleasant watch. It's not funny, with humor relying on characters being bitchy, sexist, vomiting etc. The characters are bitchy and downright irritating (mainly the one who thinks The Breakfast Club is the pinnacle of cinema). The music is clearly the draw for many here - but if I wanted to hear overproduced pop mash-ups I would listen to the bloody radio or watch Glee. This can fuck right off.
