After an awkward, naked shower scene, Beca (Anna Kendrick) is convinced that she must audition for The Bellas, an all-girl a capella group at Barden University. Uptight Aubrey (Anna Kemp) is the leader of The Bellas, along with her more laidback sidekick, Chloe (Brittany Snow).

The film starts off a little slow, but it really starts to pick up pace as we are introduced to Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) who brings a heavy dose of comedy to Pitch Perfect. We learn that she calls herself Fat Amy so that the bitches don’t talk about her behind her back (nice way of putting it, Fat Amy!) The film is definitely not lacking in the comedy department, and the audience laughed out loud at the hijinks, off color humor, and gross out scenes throughout Pitch Perfect.

The romance between Beca and Jesse (Skylar Austin) is very heartwarming, and they are truly memorable, “real” characters in the film. The sparks between Beca and Jesse fly throughout Pitch Perfect. “The Breakfast Club” is used not only as a backdrop to their relationship, but also as a way of defining all of the characters in the boys’ and girls’ a capella groups. Footage and soundtrack from “The Breakfast Club” is used throughout the film, so it’s really a must see for all those Breakfast Club fans out there.Pitch Perfect Movie Still The Acapella Competitions

The Bellas are absolutely forbidden from sleeping with any of the members of the a capella team called The Trebles, which Jesse is a part of. Not only is the romance between Beca and Jesse forbidden, but Beca would also be kicked out of The Bellas for having a romance with Jesse. To top it all off, Beca would be called a “Slut” by Fat Amy.

The action really starts to heat up as the guys and girls have to face off against each other in numerous competitions. Aubrey is the boss of the group, and she makes The Bellas repeat the same old songs over and over again. The judges (played by Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins) are not impressed with The Bellas “old” routines. Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins have great comedic chemistry together as the judges of the a capella teams.

It takes a little bonding for The Bellas to stand up to Aubrey (the rigid leader) and really shine on stage. But, in the end, The Bellas show their true colors and prove to be the best of the a capella teams.

The best way to describe “Pitch Perfect” is that it is a cross between Glee and Bridesmaids. If you are a fan of the comedy/musical genres, you will absolutely love this film. The musical performances are truly spectacular, and the comedy is phenomenal and spaced out accordingly. “Pitch Perfect” is also one of those movies that will make you want to buy the entire soundtrack.
