Pitch Perfect

I have watched this movie quite a bit since I bought it.  It's Aca-awesome! I did get to see this in the theaters when it was released and made sure I got it for my iPad when it was released.

The movie is about an anti social girl Beca, who heads to college even though she doesn't want to be there.  She wants to be in LA getting a start in the music production/DJ industry, but was forbidden by her parents to go.  So as an enticement to join in the college experience, her dad makes a deal with her to join a group on campus and if she still wants to go to LA next year she can go.

So many groups to choose from and she chooses the Barden Bellas.  The all-girl a Capella group on campus that is desperate for new singers.  The scenes to whip these new girls into aca-shape were hilarious.  The one singer is called Fat Amy and she steals the movie.  Seriously, she is my hero.

As with any college comedy, there is a romantic element.  Jess is a member of the Treblemakers at Barden and the sworn aca-enemies of the Bellas.  Awesome music and John Hughes have roles in potentially bringing these two together.

Overall a great movie that makes me think I want to join an a Capella group but then I think, mmm... better not.

  1. This is one of those movies I thought looked cute but I never made it to the theaters for. Waiting for a Netflix Instant opportunity!
