Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
You know some movies are simply stupid romantic comedy. And they use loud humor and really bad bad guys. And you wonder why people are still doing that kind of movies. And you know their box office is doing well. And you wonder therefor about your country and the worlds' future, perhaps imagining it like in Wall-E perhaps? Anyway, that's the kind of movie Pitch Perfect is. I wonder why Elizabeth Banks and Anna Kendrick are wasting their time doing them. Perhaps it is fun to make, perhaps paycheck is a good enough motive... Anyway, the point... I watched it... Yes... I love musicals, and I love a Capella singing, and choirs, and harmonics... So I am ashamed to say that I enjoyed some of it. Because the music arrangements are good... And the rest, oh well, I survived... I do recommend tho to watch Florida State University AcaBelles - Royals (opb. Lorde), instead...
