Beca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who'd rather listen to what's coming out of her headphones than what's coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect. When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"'30 Rock' and 'New Girl' writer Kay Cannon has created brilliant characters."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"This is one of the strangest and also one of the more entertaining movies of the year."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"Luckily, Pitch Perfect has just enough flaws to (almost) keep us from making terrible puns around its title, but this fun comedy is good enough to leave an a cappella version of "No Diggity" stuck in your head. For a week."
‑ Kimber Myers, The Playlist
"Mostly works because the characters are engaging and the musical performances well-chosen and well-done"
‑ Stephen Silver, EntertainmentTell
"It's 80% affectionate parody of this sort of musical, but the numbers are taken seriously and are admirably choreographed, and the performances are sprightly."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The girls, for the most part, are genuinely funny, weird, real, and, most excitingly, confident."
‑ Laura Beck, Village Voice
"Cannon doesn't go in for rococo hipster badinage in the vein of Diablo Cody. She can pare down a joke to its essence ..."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Very funny at times, usually when it embraces the campiness of the subject matter."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"Is Pitch Perfect this year's Bridesmaids? If by that we mean a thoroughly likable and surprisingly funny comedy, then yes, I suppose it is."
‑ Martin Roberts, Fan The Fire
"( ... ) after several years of Hollywood digging into ever deeper wells of gross-out smut, this is a real reversal of fortune."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"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."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"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)."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"On paper, this all looks oh-so High School Musical: The College Years, but the beauty of Pitch Perfect is they way it turns its formulaic moments into unexpected hilarity."
‑ Matt Neal, The Standard
"The sung numbers are pretty dreadful but you can't have everything."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"There are things to whinge about here. But Pitch Perfect proves impossible to resist."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
