Based on a book by Mickey Rapkin.
" The girls, for the most part, are genuinely funny, weird, real, and, most excitingly, confident. "
" "Pitch Perfect" doesn't take itself any more seriously than it has to, and has plenty of fun both sending up and celebrating its subject matter. "
" "Pitch Perfect" is major key all the way, a blast of tuneful sugary cheer kicked up with enough tart humor to offset the glucose. "
" 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. "
" Belatedly riffing on the TV series "Glee" might have produced some sour notes, but "Pitch Perfect" finds just the right tone. "
" What we have here is a not-very-funny college comedy for tweens, full of unappealing characters (and although the musical arrangements are fun, some truly unimaginative choreography). "
" The spirited a cappella singing in Pitch Perfect makes a predictable, feather-light coming-of-age film irresistibly fun. "
" Not quite pitch perfect, but it's irresistible. "
" Luckily, the good outweighs the bad in this bright 'n' breezy comedy about competitive a cappella singing groups. "
" I got a goofball kick out of Pitch Perfect. Anna Kendrick is terrific in this spoofy, sassy romp. And I have one word for Rebel Wilson - Wow! "
" Cannon doesn't go in for rococo hipster badinage in the vein of Diablo Cody. She can pare down a joke to its essence ... "
" '30 Rock' and 'New Girl' writer Kay Cannon has created brilliant characters. "
" If you're not grinning by the end of this light, funny crowd-pleaser, consider yourself tone deaf. "
" A let's-put-on-a-show story so steeped in backlot Hollywood convention it almost embarrasses itself, with the difference being it really doesn't care. "
" Warblers win the day in this sweet-natured film (based on a swell behind-the-scenes book by Mickey Rapkin) about the life and loves of collegians from competing a-cappella groups. "
" 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." "
" Only occasionally funny and not at all illuminating about the rich world of a cappella singing. "
" "Pitch Perfect" totally gets one critical fact: A cappella singing contests are both a little bit amazing and a little bit ridiculous. The tone that the film strikes is a perfect balance between the two extremes. "
" This is one of the strangest and also one of the more entertaining movies of the year. "
" Though likable and energetic, the movie is so eager to put a finger on every pulse that it loses the rhythm. "
