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.
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…
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 constantly underestimate Pitch Perfect. I give it no thought for months, dismissing it as a fairly generic teen Glee rip-off (or at best, a cash-in). And then I watch it again and I’m surprised by how sharp and pointy it actually is. It’s a film with edges, jokes that aren’t just played for broad laughs. And I think “Wow, I actually really like this film”. And then the whole cycle repeats itself again.
Tune in again in six months when I basically post this same review again the next time this film comes on telly.
An entertaining cast, funny script, & catchy soundtrack combine to make this Bridesmaids-esque film one you don't want to miss.
Pretty damn fun. The songs are great.
I am in an acapella club myself, so there are things here I can relate to and laugh at. Fun time.
What can I say? I like it. I like it a lot! And I'm not afraid to admit it! And I can't wait for the sequel!! I want more choreographed nerd singing! There I said it!!
It's a cute movie. Nice songs, likable actors. I like it okay.
A fun musical comedy with good acting and very little cheesiness.
