MOVIE REVIEW - Pitch Perfect 2

Written by

The original Pitch Perfect was a big surprise hit,  but it can't hold a candle to Pitch Perfect 2 that raked in 70 million dollars in weekend one. More that the original brought in in its entire run.

This will be quick and tidy. This movie picks up after the first movie left off. The wonderful A Capella female collegiate group, The Bellas is now a 3-time national champion and many of our girls are getting ready to graduate and move on. Trouble is, it's a hard reality that most of them do not want to face.

During a performance for the president, The Bellas have a rather unfortunate, embarrassing and inappropriate incident on stage. So they are suspended from competing in future competitions.  But they can compete in the World Championships which is overseen by a different body.  So they decide to and try to rebuild their reputation.

First off, the music in this movie is fantastic yet again as it was in the first movie.  All of the singing with no instruments is terrific and the music in general is overseen in the movie by Mark Mothersbaugh from Akron.  And it is simply sensational. This is also loaded with wonderful satire and parody. This is pretty darn funny at times, and entertaining all of the time.  This makes fun of itself, it also satirizes the modern college experience and many things in society.  All of it very well done.

Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson are back as our main characters and all are funny again.  We do welcome Hailee Steinfeld as a new character and it seems she could be here to take this franchise over if more are made, and if Kendrick chooses to move on. And I'm guessing she will. The supporting cast is strong, and overall so is this movie. The target audience will love this, and see it again and again.

Pitch Perfect 2.   Perfect again for it's fans.
