Synopsis: Beca, a freshman at Barton University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school’s all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
Release Date: October 5, 2012
Thoughts: Here’s how this movie came to be. An intern at Universal Studios was getting material together for a meeting their boss was having with Anna Kendrick about a new project. She was walking down the hall with the scripts to Bridesmaids, Bring it On, and a Glee episode. She trips. Pages go EVERYWHERE. She scrambles to put them together but they are all out of order. Even though she knows its wrong she gives the script to her boss anyway. Get this. Kendrick and the studio exec LOVED the script. The intern is now head of programming and Pitch Perfect is set for release in October.
In all honesty, this movie looks kinda fun and kinda funny…but if you consider it’s a mash-up of better idea it starts to have a tin look to it. Kendrick is finally getting to show off her voice and the valuable Rebel Wilson continues to show signs of a career of scene stealing…but will it all work out to an interesting feature?
