Now graduated from college and out in the real world where it takes more than a cappella to get by, the Bellas return in Pitch Perfect 3, the next chapter in the beloved series that has taken in more than $400 million at the global box office. After the highs of winning the World Championships, the Bellas find themselves split apart and discovering there aren't job prospects for making music with your mouth. But when they get the chance to reunite for an overseas USO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.
Comedy Musical - The third film in the popular musical comedy series
offers more of the laughs and music that made it a
sensation with the target audience of females,
especially teens and young adults, this time with a
little action-adventure twist. The entire young male
cast in previous films do not return, which may
disappoint some fans, but the core female cast
including Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow,
Hailee Steinfeld, and Elizabeth Banks are all back.
Series newcomer John Lithgow has only a small role.
Some fight scenes and suggestive verbal humor may make
this of some caution to parents of younger kids, but
families of pre-teens and up will generally find this
PROFANITY: 2 S-words; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Fights, sometimes played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Fights and a big explosion. COMEDY: Constant silly banter and wisecracks, often suggestive; silly physical gags, sometimes crude.
Roger EbertFull Review Average The best thing I can say about it is that it's not another retread of its predecessor. ...seriously overcrowded with new characters who never truly register, including not one but two blandly handsome potential love interests...
USA TodayFull Review Below Average ...the most forgettable entry yet in the gleefully sing-happy series that's seen a steep drop in diminishing returns. The predictable threequel is more of the insipid same, oddly pulling back on the musical montages in favor of laughable slapstick comedy, daddy issues galore and, inexplicably, secret-agent high jinks.
NY PostFull Review Good ...a total delight, thanks to its proven formula of clever pop arrangements, dry humor and superb casting. "Three” boasts some of the series' best music, too....the studio could drop this cast in a DMV with a pitch pipe and they would make a decent movie out of it — a movie that I would pay to see.
Slant MagazineFull Review Below Average ...a competently entertaining and sometimes subtly transgressive look at female friendship. ...it doubles down on genre conventions that the franchise had previously been so adept at avoiding, further undermining the potential potency of its message.
