Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Musical - This is a music-driven comedy aimed primarily at teen and young adult women. Fans of lead Anna Kendrick should be pleased but other familiar faces such as Elizabeth Banks have much smaller roles. Some language and innuendo make the film too mature-themed for very young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Pitch Perfect would be a perfectly watchable, pain-free source of entertainment if it was edited down to a highlight reel of various a capella groups covering pop songs, ...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average You have to hand it to'"Pitch Perfect.' It's a twentysomething song-and-dance movie built around rival a cappella groups. That's more exciting than dueling string quartets, I suppose...

USA Today Full Review
Good The spirited a cappella singing in Pitch Perfect makes a predictable, feather-light coming-of-age film irresistibly fun.

Washington Post Full Review
Good The last thing I expected to see in the credits for 'Pitch Perfect' -- a comedy about the world of competitive collegiate a cappella that is as funny as it is infectiously toe-tapping -- was the phrase 'based on a book.'

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 66 moviegoers:
WOW! These are FANTASTIC REVIEWS! Virtually everyone loved "Pitch Perfect." To see such high reviews from nearly all females is rare and certainly indicates a movie not to be missed by the ladies. While there aren't many male reviews, they also clearly indicate a movie the guys enjoyed very much.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Beca (ANNA KENDRICK) is that girl who'd rather listen to what's coming out of her headphones than what's coming out of anyone's mouth. Arriving at Barden University, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she would never have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together.

When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college music competitions. This could wind up either the coolest thing they'll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.
