Pitch Perfect Movie Review
Pitch Perfect is about the world of competitive collegiate a cappella. Don’t dismiss it as a glee rip-off. It is edgier and more irrelevant than the TV series. But on the good side, it has better score. The Bellas have all the appeal of cheerleaders but instead of dancing during games, they sing without instruments in the background.
After losing at the Nationals of the collegiate a cappella, and with senior members graduating, the Bellas are left with only two veterans. They have to find a way to get more members into the group and prepare for the next Nationals.
They have a hard task in their hands because there’s only so much talent in a campus with four a cappella groups. Beca (Anna Kendrick) joins the group to show her father that she’s trying to fit in in college. What she really wants to do is to produce music on her computer and flirt with Jesse (Skylar Astin), a member of Bellas’ rival The Treblemakers.
Pitch Perfect is a classic underdog story. The Bellas are not as good as the champions but they have the fighting spirit to try hard to make the former Bellas proud. The group learns to enjoy being themselves and this is when things turn good.
Pitch Perfect features fun music that is well arranged. It like leave a lasting impression to the audience. It is a classic battle of the sexes, with Bellas going up against The Treblemakers in the a cappella competition.
Pitch Perfect also has its fair share of funny moment, most of which is courtesy of Rebel Wilson. She gives one memorable performance as Fat Amy.
Pitch Perfect is something that you can enjoy even if you don’t like a cappella music. Music lovers in general must watch this one. It has several good performances from the cast with a good dose of laughter along the way.
