Movie review: Pitch Perfect

My husband and I managed to catch an early release of Pitch Perfect, the very hysterical comedy about college acapella groups. Barden University has four acapella groups. However, only two of them are actually good. The Barden Bellas is the all-girl group and The Treble Makers is the all-guy group. The Treble Makers are the Inter-Collegiate Champions, thanks to a vomit-filled performance by Aubrey. When the new school year begins, only two of the Bellas are left to pick up the pieces. Unfortunately, the only girls willing to join them are the oddballs. Among them is Beca. She wants to move to Los Angeles to become a DJ but her father makes her attend college instead. Her musical mash-up skills become crucial to The Bellas.

I have become a big fan of Rebel Wilson. She has quickly become one of my favorite comedic actresses. My husband, meanwhile is a fan of Anna Kendrick. Luckily, both actresses are awesome in this movie. Actually, everyone is awesome in this movie. There isn't a single character that I would get rid of. Adding to the awesomeness is the soundtrack. All of the actors did their own singing and the movie is better as a result. If you don't believe me, just search for Pitch Perfect on YouTube and watch any of the trailers. Then get yourself to a movie theater on Friday, when the movie goes to a wide release. As a warning, there is a running gag involving a large quantity of vomit. (I didn't know this and almost tossed my own cookies.) If you can get past that, you'll love Pitch Perfect.
