Pitch Perfect

7/10
Comedy . Music . Romance
 

College student Beca knows she does not want to be part of a clique, but that's exactly where she finds herself after arriving at her new school. Thrust in among mean gals, nice gals and just plain weird gals, Beca finds that the only thing they have in common is how well they sing together. She takes the women of the group out of their comfort zone of traditional arrangements and into a world of amazing harmonic combinations in a fight to the top of college music competitions.

More Info:
  • Randy Cordova

    A comedy about an all-female collegiate a cappella group. And to paraphrase one of the characters in the movie, it's A-Ca-Awesome.

  • Amy Nicholson

    Rebel Wilson is the peroxided Aussi who stole scenes as Kristen Wiig's roommate in "Bridesmaids," and this is the role that will turn her into a star.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Bouncy vocal rearrangements of pop songs, sparkling choreography and a hilarious script make for a movie that's made to be obsessed over, seen 50 times, quoted as devoutly as such sacred texts as "Heathers" and "Bring It On."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Kimber Myers

    The script finishes up exactly where you think it will, but along the way, there are enough surprises and perfectly delivered lines to make it a blast.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    The soundtrack's ironic bent might dissuade older viewers (Simple Minds are venerated), but they'd be missing out on one of the best musical comedies since A Mighty Wind. The song's the same, but Pitch Perfect is a great cover version.

  • Olly Richards

    It's the kind of silly you can only get away with when your writing is very smart. A little bit odd and very, very funny.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    One of the finest sequences is a "riff-off" between the boys and the girls, a West Side Story-style showdown that plays out with shards of songs instead of switchblades.

    NPR Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    A spirited, irreverent and hugely fun comedy.

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The campus comedy Pitch Perfect harmonizes high-end performance with low-brow spoofery. It's like a National Lampoon parody where the targets write the jokes.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    For the most part, it works brilliantly.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Impossible not to like.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    Pitch Perfect pitches itself between "Bridesmaids" and "Glee," which is to say it celebrates the low-down raunchiness of girls being girls among girls, while delivering a snap-crackle-and-pop music catharsis. Yes, folks, rock is dead, but long live showbiz.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    Any movie that features a character calling herself Fat Amy has a pretty firm grip on irony. It helps that Fat Amy is played by Rebel Wilson ("Bachelorette," "Bridesmaids"), my favorite eccentric Aussie practitioner of lip-curled comic timing.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    She has the perfect nervy, nerdy, needy alter ego in Anna Kendrick.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Pitch Perfect is an enjoyably snarky campus romp that's both wildly nerdy and somewhat sexy.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    As spirited and irresistible as the college a cappella craze it celebrates, Pitch Perfect is a cheeky delight.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    What we have is a not-very-funny college comedy for tweens, full of unappealing characters and, although the musical arrangements are fun, some truly unimaginative choreography.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    All told, Pitch Perfect isn't all that good – but it's an awfully good sport.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Without the music, the movie might have been painful, but the songs, Auto-Tuned and processed as they are, generate a hooky bliss. They're the chewy center of this ultra-synthetic hard candy.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The college singing-group comedy Pitch Perfect isn't dumb, but Kendrick's participation implies that it might also be smart. And sometimes it is.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    I smiled for the first half of the movie and started laughing hysterically when a supporting character hijacked it from its stars.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Kendrick is terrific, taking a role that could have slid by on snide and building it into something uniquely funny and touching.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ken McIntyre

    Gleeks and Glee-haters alike should rally around this raucous musical comedy. Rebel Wilson is hilarious, Anna Kendrick is terrific and there are as many gross-out gags as there are singing numbers.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The music, of course, is the engine that makes the whole exercise go, tapping into a genre-spanning collection of tunes, but every bit as important to the film's success is its unexpected humor, which flirts with raunchy but stops juuuust short of crossing any lines that would have earned it an R rating.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    What helps offset the predictable in this very predictable movie is a series of show-stopping numbers, so props to the folks who oversaw music and choreography. But the true saving grace is a few of the central players.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    How you respond to Pitch Perfect will depend primarily on how you feel about its obvious inspirations: "Glee," "Bring It On" and the food-poisoning scene from "Bridesmaids."

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    This film could have done with a few more mouth beats and unlikely moments of extracurricular celebrity.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Pitch Perfect looks, sounds, and feels like pretty much every other movie that features a singing or dancing competition.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Theoretically, the "Bring It On" model can be applied to any remotely performative art. All it takes is a certain level of sass, some eye-catching performance showcases, and a plot where a talented outsider livens up a moribund group with some fresh ideas. Pitch Perfect slaps that stencil onto college a cappella singing groups, with a smattering of success.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The Higgins performance owes more than a little to Fred Willard's unforgettable dog show commentary in "Best in Show," but it was clear that Willard was part of a telecast.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Andrew Schenker

    Jason Moore's film is more or less successful in inverse proportion to the degree that it plays its material by the book.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Only occasionally funny and not at all illuminating about the rich world of a cappella singing.
