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

What felt like winking cheekiness in the first movie can come across now more like clumsy provocation.

Stop me if you think you've heard this one before.

While this isn't a bad movie by any means, and will probably still delight most of the audience, I felt like it didn't quite have the spark of freshness that made the first Pitch Perfect so much fun. Enjoyable, but not aca-mazing.

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

The new movie seems awfully like a combination cover and mash-up of the first movie, repeating in its structure what the plot also repeats.

Ethnic clichés abound, college comes off as a free sleepaway camp, and the simple wonders of unaccompanied singing are inflated to Las Vegas-style bombast.

Pitch Perfect 2 is a solid effort, and an entertaining one, too.

Although not as memorable or controlling as the first, Pitch Perfect 2 is still vivacious, crude and entertaining. The film builds up from its sensational start… More

Pitch Perfect 2 is aca-mazing! Enough said. 4/5
Kase Vollebregt
This sequel offers some laughs, but its narrative is derivative and it is almost entirely forgettable.

To be quite honest, the predictability of the narrative is kind of the selling point. You come for songs, jokes and camaraderie and you're given exactly… More
