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.

What we have is an update that is tighter, slicker and fine-tuned in more ways than one - no doubt music to the ears of the fans of a flowering franchise.

Pitch Perfect 2 models positive female relationships amid some dope vocal gymnastics.

Not as fresh as the first but still funny and well written and newcomer Steinfield is a breath of fresh air. Kendrick and Wilson are still good and have great… More
