Beca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who’d rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than what’s coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect.

When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college a cappella. This could wind up either the coolest thing they’ll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.

Loaded with new takes on old favorites to hits of right now that are seamlessly mixed together, mashed-up and arranged like you’ve never heard before, Pitch Perfect is directed by Jason Moore, who opened our eyes to the very misbehaved life of puppets in the surprise Broadway sensation Avenue Q.

Pitch Perfect Theatrical Review

If you are looking for a fun film with a lot of liveliness, then look to Pitch Perfect for your entertainment this weekend.  It's not just a comedy, but a creative musical that aims at a younger crowd yet reaches all adult levels with snappy wit, involving storyline and high energy performances.
The story centers on Beca (Anna Kendrick) a new student at Barden University who's more of a loner than a mixer.  Into her own type of music, Beca avoids the campus's coral groups who feast on attention from the rest of their classmates while doing covers on songs of the past.  But, as life sometimes takes odd turns, Beca ends up in an all female a cappella group called the Bellas a mix of ladies that have actually earned some accolades up until they bombed out in the finals of a national music competition. 
The enjoyment here comes with Beca getting involved with the wide variety of personalities that make up the musical vocal group.  Much like the odd balls of Bridesmaids, this chorus has some hilarious members from bitchy to bodacious.  Director Jason Moore keeps his talent energetic, witty and aggressive in their attempt to unseat the all men's group The Treblemakers who happen to be last year's national grand champions. 
The film puts on an amazing show with Anna Kendrick (Tony Award nominated for her work in the Broadway musical production of High Society) singing some enjoyable covers with her regal support crew.  Topping the Bellas are several familiar faces all in top vocal form including; Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids) as a very funny Fat Amy who has a resounding voice, Anna Camp (The Help) as Aubrey, Brittany Snow (Hairspray) as leader of the group Chloe, Alexis Knapp (Project X) plays a very spicy Stacie and Hana Mae Lee (TV's Mike and Molly) as the very meek Lilly.  This core of the Bellas keeps the film appealing, musical and humorous.
On the men's team The Treblemakers, director Moore gets fine performances out of Skylar Astin from TV's "Girls" as the Beca's love interest and Adam Devine (TV's Workaholics) leader of the group and obsessed with being the best.  Without the all men's competitive team against the Bellas the film would have been quite flat.  The guys put on some nicely choreographed performances and ramp up the show.
Although set up as more of a comedy than a musical, there's outstanding performances on the part of the whole company with Kendrick, Wilson and Snow taking center stage.  With cover tunes of Gloria Estefan's "Turn the Beat Around", Rihanna's "S&M" and Backstreet's "No Diggity" the girls turn the film into a high energy tune fest. The guys add "Don't Stop the Music" (Rihanna), "Let It Whip" (The Dazz Band), "Mickey" (Toni Basil) and other recognizable hits keeping the film rocking.
The film has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sexual material, language and drug references. 
FINAL ANALYSIS:  A fun film with an upbeat musical theme. (B)
