Movie Lover – Pitch Perfect 2

loved the first Pitch Perfect. It was spot on with it’s humor and I’m a sucker for a capella in all forms so it was a home run for me. imagespp2

The sequel, while laugh out loud funny, fell a bit short for me. Basically it’s the former Bellas’ senior year and they are the defending National champs, but a performance for the President goes dreadfully awry and they are stripped of their title and status. They plan a come back at the World championship and add new freshman legacy member. All the while Becca (Anna Kendrick) is trying to prove her worth as a music producer interning at a ridiculous music company.

There are quite a few inside jokes and I definitely laughed a lot. The music mashups were great even if I don’t love the original song they created this time. Some of the cheap jokes felt too cheap. And the story line lacked punch since it spanned a year and had a lot of threads to carry. It lacked cohesion even the music continued to be amazing. I wish there was more with Jesse and Becca too.

So all in all – love the franchise but felt the sequel had huge flaws.
