I had been wanting to see Pitch Perfect for a while, so I picked a day that Mike wasn’t home to watch it… it really didn’t strike me as the guy’s guy kinda movie.
Director: Jason Moore
Runtime: 1 hour, 52 minutes
Plot Summary (from IMDb): The Barden Bellas are a collegiate, all-girls a cappella singing group thriving on female pop songs and their perfect looks. After a disastrous failing at last year’s finals, they are forced to regroup. Among the new recruits is freshman Beca, an independent, aspiring DJ with no interest in the college life. But after she meets Jesse, from the rival all-male a cappella group, Beca has a new outlook and takes it upon herself to help the Bellas find their new look and sound and get back into the competition.
This is definitely a music geek kind of movie (those new to my blog, don’t take offense to that – I’m a very proud music geek). They did all sorts of different a capella cover songs that were a lot of fun. This movie is full of loads of funny one liners – here’s a few of the ones that cracked me up (they probably make more sense in the context of the movie, but I’ll post them anyway):
Nothing makes a woman feel more like a girl than a man who sings like a boy.
Your weirdness is actually affecting my vocal chords, so I’m gonna need you to SCOOT!
I can sing, but I’m also good at modern dance, olden dance, and mermaid dancing which is a little different. You usually start on the ground – it’s a lot of floor work.
If you’re expecting a deep, thought-provoking movie, this is not the movie for you. It’s a fun, light-hearted movie. I probably wouldn’t pay to rent it again, maybe just wait for it to come out on TV. Rebel Wilson was pretty funny, but I think they used up her best lines in the trailer.
- Theater: This means the movie is awesome. Go see this movie in the theater – well worth the $100 you’ll spend for a night out to see it on the big screen!
- On Demand: Since no one actually rents movies anymore, this category has changed to On Demand. This means it’s a great movie, but it is as good at home as it is in the theater and worth seeing a little sooner.
- TV: This means the movie is ok. Wait for it to show up on HBO and see it for free.
- Skip It: Movie sucks, don’t waste your time.
