Ok, so this review of Pitch Perfect is a little late, but my excuse is my over indulgent in the Christmas spirits, namely the liquid ones and food ones, yes I took Christmas off for a change, but not totally off!
So on to Pitch Perfect which is based on the book of the same, not read it to be honest, so can’t give a comparison.
Beca (Anna Kendrick), a freshman at the Barden University is coaxed in to joining The Bellas, in a hope if injecting something new to their repertoire to beat off their male rivals in the competition.
So this new collection of singers including Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) start on their journey of becoming friends and beating off the competition in a rather predictable movie, that isn’t so much Glee, but more “Flee”.
Sadly the jokes in the film are rather lackluster and the comedy parts of the film can be seen from around the corner coming. But it’s not all bad, what makes up for this is the music in the film.
The scenes with the competitions are nicely done with some great musical set pieces and are choreographed very, very well, but with not that much really in the comedy side going for it, when it is made out to be a comedy it falls flat.
If you think the film is going to be something like Glee, then it isn’t, but if you like films with some great music and dance sequences then you’ll probably enjoy the film.
Overall Thoughts For Pitch Perfect
It’s not as good as the trailers make it out to be, the music is great and this makes up for the lack of comedy and fun in the film, you’ll like Pitch Perfect if you enjoy films like Step Up.
