    Synopsis


    Pitch Perfect
    A feisty coed joins a collegiate a cappella group and upgrades their song selection for the 21st century during the run-up to a major competition in this melodic comedy from Tony-nominated Avenue Q director Jason Moore. Drifting past the various cliques after arriving at college, Beca (Anna Kendrick) pays more attention to the jams pumping in her headphones than the people she passes on her way to class. But all that changes the moment she stumbles into the one place where every misfit has a voice -- the campus a cappella group. Although the competition amongst the singers proves surprisingly fierce, there's just one aspect of the group Beca can't wrap her head around: All of the songs they perform are at least a decade old. Convinced that they can do better by adding some contemporary tunes into the mix, Beca whips up an exciting new set list that will set the group apart and leave their rivals in the dust. Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and Rebel Wilson co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      What if your only goal in attending college was to appease your father so he’ll subsidize your true ambitions? Would you simply slack off and plan the future you really want? Or would you find a group of students anxious to have you and stick it out? During the opening scene of the film, we’re introduced to the Bellas, an all-girl a capella group from the fictional Barden College who are performing at Lincoln Center. During a solo, Aubrey (played by Anna Camp) vomits on stage and turns the Bellas into a national joke. The following semester, new student Beca Mitchell (played by Anna Kendrick) meets Aubrey (Camp) and Chloe (played by Brittany Snow) who are desperate to rebound from their previous embarrassment. Becca (Kendrick), however, is only biding time in college to please her father while composing mash-ups on the laptop in her dorm room. Conversely, Fat Amy (played by Australian comedic actress Rebel Wilson) is confident in her singing ability and anxious to join the Bellas, who used to be composed solely of traditionally beautiful co-eds with vocal talent. Then, while singing in the shower, Beca’s talent is discovered by her dorm-mate Chloe. While Beca is noticeably unnerved by the uninvited presence of another nude member of the student body, Chloe refuses to leave until Beca joins her in song. After discovering the fact that Becca has yet to attend a single class, her father (a professor at Barden played by John Benjamin Hickey) tells her that if she wants him to pay her way to Los Angeles she must attend her classes and join at least one student organization. Despite performing Cups at her audition, Beca’s invited to join the Bellas along with Fat Amy and the nearly inaudible Lily (played by Hana Mae Lee). And so began a new season for the Bellas under the dictatorial direction the veteran performer with a nervous stomach, Aubrey. Now, I wasn’t expecting much a movie intent on lampooning something whose ridiculous nature is pretty self-evident. Still, there were things about it that I liked. Beca’s unfiltered contempt for college clichés and the majority of the student body inspires a lot of laughs. At the same time, the gross-out factor is in full-effect during this music-oriented comedy and I don’t really care for that kind of humor. Also, Beca’s rejection of Jesse (a kindhearted coworker at the campus radio station played by Skylar Astin) wears thin long before she relents. Since the problem I have with this film is essentially the same as the one I had with Bridesmaids, I’ll give it the same score.

      Yes, I'm a guy. I wasn't very enthusiastic about seeing this (there were other movies much higher on my 'to watch' list, but it was great! Not just another chick flick. Especially if you're completely sick of glee-type music everywhere. This was dealing with a capella groups (even the instrumentation was done by vocals only). A fairly funny movie with good acting from leads & rest of the ensemble cast. This video (both BD and DVD have one of the best extras I've ever seen on a disc: a music video stitched together with home videos (a la youtube) that people from all over sent in to the filmmakers who then edited together the submissions along with parts sung by the cast to make a completed song. Great! Also, if you look close during the pool scene, one of the categories on the wheel is 'songs glee hasn't ruined yet' or something like that. Hilarious! Didn't give much of a synopsis here, but there's plenty of those on the internet (amazon, imdb.com)—I just wanted to hit the couple things that have made me like this movie more and more each time I watch it+

      Okay I really adore this film because aside from the wonderful music performances, its actually really funny and has a very nice story line and great cast. I was not sure I'd like it for more than the music when I saw the original commercials for it but it turned out to be great. I give it four stars for being a solid film thats enjoyable from start to finish, well written and fun with a great cast. I have recommended this film to others and they too loved it. Also the multi formats in this combo is excellent. I have the movie added to my vudu account now and dont have to carry the movies around from room to room. I usually just open vudu on my roku, bluray player or laptop and fire it up. I hope all movies include digital copies from now on because I'm hooked on it now. lol

      Easily one of the greatest movies about acappella at the competition level with some of the best remixed versions of music I've ever heard. Genuinely funny, no one "attempts" funny and fails. Obscenity that's so ridiculous you'll find yourself referencing it later. And some unbelievablely sick talent that just makes you want to burst out in song too, unfortunately that includes the tone deaf as well. This movie is so wonderfully multi-layered you'll be laughing, crying and fighting for that final title right along with them. I'd recommend this movie to anyone, man or woman, it has something for everyone.

      I seriously have no complaints about this movie. I initially got the movie after hearing it was "pretty good". I watched it the first time and thought it was pretty alright. Then for some reason I watched it again, either the same or next day. Since then I have watched it at least a couple dozen times and it really doesn't lose its appeal. It's a great movie. Can't wait for the sequel in 2015! The singing is great, the characters are relatable. You really notice something new and funny each time you watch it. I only wish the bonus features included bloopers. YOU KNOW THERE WERE TONS!

      When I first saw Pitch Perfect, I didn't think I was going to like it. I was wrong. It's actually a funny, original, silly feel good movie that has some very catchy moments. I found myself wanting to YouTube certain scenes to listen to the music well after I watched the movie. I would recommend it for anyone that enjoys comedies, music, or just wants to escape for a couple of hours and relax.

      This bluray copy was actually the SECOND copy I purchased of this movie. I originally bought the regular DVD version of it at target around the time it originally came out. Everybody said the movie was good. Mind you, I didn't watch it in the theaters so I just bought it on the whim. I watched it &ended up LOVING it. It was so funny, great song choices and has a solid story. Pitch Perfect 2 is coming out soon too! The reason why I bought a second copy is because I let a friend borrow the movie and she never returned it. This movie is THAT good.

      Pitch Perfect is one of those guilty pleasures that you won't mind having. It's great fun following the Barton Bellas a capella singing group as they journey from miserable to marvelous. Anna Kendrick does a great job as Becca, who enters the a capella world reluctantly but emerges as a transformative fount of musical creativity. Rebel Wilson provides some great humor thanks to her "pitch perfect" delivery. The writing is sharp and the music fun in this delightful film.
