Pitch Perfect is a feel good comedy about two high school acapella groups that are rivals in an competition. One group is all male and the other all female so of course there is a romantic element. Beca is a wannabe rebel who unwillingly finds herself in the acapella group. The rivalry between the male group 'Treblemakers' and the females 'Bellas' leads to a lot of humorous situations. It is a musical but don't worry they don't randomly burst out into perfectly choreographed dance and song, they only sing when performing. It is, however, one of those films where you leave the cinema wishing you could sing.
Obviously I am not a journalist so this won't be a professional review but from a 17 year old girls perspective I absolutely love this film. I actually laughed so hard that several people turned around and stared at me quite a few times. There were lots of laugh out loud moments from the very beginning to the very end. It's full of quotable lines! Especially from Fat Amy (played by the amazing Rebel Wilson) who is perfect at dead pan comedy. Rebel improvised a lot of the lines and you can really tell. I wasn't expecting to like the music but I've developed a new found love for acepella music. They sing modern songs but the acepella twist works amazingly so I've been listening to them on youtube a lot- *this one is my favourite. My Mum also really liked the film so it is suited to a range of ages. Whilst it is a perfect girly comedy I do think the humour could easily appeal to guys too. I actually liked this film so much I'm planning to go to the cinema to see it again soon which I have never ever done before. In my books that is impressive.
If you haven't already seen Pitch Perfect I really recommend you make a trip to the cinema to see it or get in on DVD if you're in the US!
Have you seen this film? What do you think?
Thanks for reading!x
P.S-After watching some interviews I've decided that Anna Kendrick who plays Beca is a slight girl crush of mine. I'm always jealous of people that talented! She's so sarcastic and witty but still down to earth. And she is pretty gorgeous! I am aware that I sound like a creep now. Sorry.
Also Skylar Austin who plays Jese looks sort of like Woody from Toy Story. But I still find him extremely attractive. Is that wrong?
