Consensus: Pitch Perfect 2 sings in sweet comedic harmony, even if it doesn't hit quite as many high notes as its predecessor.

James Berardinelli

It is badly written, inexpertly directed, poorly acted, erratically paced, and features music of dubious worth.

This sequel succumbs to a predictable syndrome and goes big when it should have gone home. Its self-satisfaction is a step toward cynicism, and that is what a Pitch Perfect film must never be.

Overlong, it could be sharper and funnier but hits enough high notes with its infectious joie de vivre.

Kase Vollebregt
This sequel offers some laughs, but its narrative is derivative and it is almost entirely forgettable.

Triumphs over the first. Deeply amusing and entertaining!
