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

I don't know if I'm just getting old, or if comedies lately are just that bland and generic. This was just okay background material. Some nice songs… More

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
