Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, and the rest of the Barden Bellas are back for an acca-sequel. “Pitch Perfect 2” continues to follow the Barden Bellas as they try to earn back their reputation after a hilariously, humiliating performance. “Pitch Perfect 2” provides audiences with a continuing love story and a look at the Bellas’ lives after they graduate from college. It is full of jokes and music that will leave you singing well after the movie is over.
The vocals of Becca (Anna Kendrick) and Chloe (Brittany Snow) were entertaining and on point. Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) takes the comedy crown once again with her loud humor. The sexist, racial, and crude humor from the acapella commentators, John (John Michael Higgins) and Gail (the films director, Elizabeth Banks), left audiences laughing throughout the film.
With almost the exact same cast as “Pitch Perfect,” besides the refreshing new face and voice of Hailee Steinfeld, the movie was lacking surprises. Most of the surprise cast members were already ruined by the teasers which included the President and First Lady and even the Green Bay Packers.
For the musical loving, light comedy, acapella lovers of the world this is the perfect movie, but if singing, dancing, and college girls finding true friendship isn’t for you, I would pass. If you liked “Pitch Perfect,” then you are bound to like its similar sequel. I was not disappointed with this highly anticipated sequel, but I’m not sure if another film can or should be squeezed out of this story.
