Pitch Perfect is an upcoming comedy film that revolves around a girl named Beca (played by Anna Kendrick) a young girl who is arriving at her new college. So what’s different with Beca? To start off, Beca would rather listen to music that is coming out of her headphones rather than to listen to anyone else. In her new school, she finds herself alongside mean girls, weird and even sweet girls. The only common thing they have is their passion to sing. Pitch Perfect is a new musical film that has its own taste of comedy. The girls will have to fight through tons of competition to make it to the top. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for us in this upcoming film: Pitch Perfect
“Pitch Perfect: A Perfect Musical With Its Own Touch of Comedy
Barden University freshman Beca (played by current it-girl Anna Kendrick) is an aspiring musical composer with great pipes. Beca joins the school’s all-girl a cappella group the Bellas in the hopes of upgrading the group’s less-than-modern song selection to claim victory at the upcoming national a cappella competition. A talented all-boys rival team stands in their way. A hint of dweeb romance peeks out between Beca and singing rival Jesse (Skylar Astin) as an addendum to the film’s overused competition plot device. Note to Hollywood: no more dance-offs or sing-offs, or anything-offs — ever again.
Anna Kendrick reinforces her reputation as a cinematic force of nature, performing impressive singing duties against a variety of musical styles. The film’s lighthearted jibes percolate through the Bella’s arsenal of quirky character traits. Rebel Wilson’s hilarious Fat Amy disarms any would-be detractors by beating them to the punch. She introduces herself as “Fat Amy,” rather than tolerate insults regarding her plump body. Wilson’s British accent comes to comic advantage in more than a few of Fat Amy’s well-placed quips. Hana Mae Lee’s mousy Lily speaks and sings in a tiny voice through which she sometimes discloses horrific facts about her self — “she ate her twin sister in the womb.”
Even though the movie never goes far enough with the complexity of its musical compositions, there are enough laugh-inciting moments, and peppy song versions to keep you entertained. The obvious addition of bass and drums to the film’s ostensibly acoustic a cappella climax deflates some of the scene’s musical magic.”
