Storyline

The Bellas are back, and they are better than ever. After being humiliated in front of none other than the President of the United States of America, the Bellas are taken out of the Aca-Circuit. In order to clear their name and regain their status, the Bellas take on a seemingly impossible task: winning an International competition no American team has ever won. In order to accomplish this monumental task, they need to strengthen the bonds of friendship and sisterhood, and blow away the competition with their amazing aca-magic! With all new friends and old rivals tagging along for the trip, the Bellas can hopefully accomplish their dreams once again. Written by Chris Greenleaf

Same Old, Same Old but it most definitely brings in the fun
16 May 2015 | by condillonSee all my reviews

Pitch Perfect 2 continues the story of the well known acapella group, The Barden Bellas as of now after a humiliating command performance at Lincoln Center, the Bellas enter an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to regain their status and right to perform. To start off, this was a average sequel with all the same techniques that made the first film so fun and spectacular. It still had all the same humor and music but one thing that bothered me in this is the plot was all over the place because like after the incident that caused them to go to the internationals, midway through the film, no one ever really mentions the incident again and it's like it never happened. There are a few plot holes that make up most parts of the film and are put into the mix as well like they go to a little sing off at a wealthy guys house and they go to a camp to try to find their tune again (yup, that actually happens). One person I really liked in this was Keegan Michael-Key, Anna Kendrick's character takes gets a new job at a music label and he plays the boss of her and wow, he was hilarious in each scene he was in, I wish they showed a lot more of him than they did. Some of the jokes were a bit dry at times but there was surely a lot of witty ones in there, they really did venture in a lot of humor in this because it was like joke after joke after joke which kind of got tiresome at times but I really did laugh at quite a few substantial moments in the film. They really did show quite a great deal on Rebel Wilson's character, she did bring in most of the humor but it also showed her connection with Adam DeVine's character and how they could handle their love for each other but she was really was a crucial part of the film. There was some of the old and some of the new characters in this, like Hailee Steinfeld's character, she did a considerable job in her role and also really was a charming character that you can come to yearn with and they did portray as the new Anna Kendrick with all the capabilities she had. I would say that the script had a few difficulties, like it did bring in some awkward laughs and was a bit rushed at times to move scenes along but a lot of it did work and did bring some heartfelt moments that the film really needed to involve. Elizabeth Banks did a fair job as the director, this is her second film as director, her first stand as director was having a short in the atrocious film, Movie 43. She did a much more of a considerable job in this and didn't fail to Impress. Overall, this was a passable sequel even though the plot had a lot going on at the same time but it still conducted the same terrific music and humor. Besides all the problems I said the film had, I did have a enjoyable time with the film and did share a substantial amount of laughs with it. So if you had such a pleasurable time with the first film, there's no doubt you wouldn't hate this Aca-mazing sequel that shares a similar note!
