“Pitch Perfect 2” is about a group of girls who are in a three-time U.S. championship-winning a capella group. After an accident during a performance, the girls have to win their way back so they can perform again. During their experience they find their voices and how to come back together and work together again.
“Pitch Perfect 2” is hilarious. There are more jokes and sarcasm in this movie than there were in the first movie. There were these three old ladies behind us and they laughed pretty much the entire time because of all the little jokes the characters make in this movie.
What I liked so much about this movie was that they kept every character from the first movie and just added a few more characters, so it seemed like a sequel and not a brand new movie – it seemed to fall together.
“Pitch Perfect 2” also mentioned old memories from the past movie that also helped the feeling that like it was just another part of the first movie, fast forwarded to three years later.
“Pitch Perfect 2” had a lot more singing in it than the first movie. In the first one, the characters didn’t go around singing on the streets or singing while coming closer to the guy they liked, as they did in the second movie, like how Fat Amy went to her “lover” Bumper.
More a capella groups were also featured in “Pitch Perfect 2”. One of the groups the Bellas compete against, Das Sound Machine, is a German group and they are the best a capella group in the world. There are also more competitions and more drama in this one dealing with friends, boyfriends and life after the Bellas.
There was more up-to-date music, which I liked a lot because we knew the songs and the theater sang along during the movie. This element got the audience more involved and into the movie.
There was only a little confusing part to me, which was where they were at certain times. Sometimes I did not know if they were traveling, at their college or just randomly somewhere else. Since there was so many different competitions, different groups and plans in the movie, it was easy to get lost.
