Both acerbic and friendly in a way that gives it bite without giving it too much edge.

A slovenly lark, but a spirited one.

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.

Very funny at times, usually when it embraces the campiness of the subject matter.

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.

Mostly works because the characters are engaging and the musical performances well-chosen and well-done

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.

The sung numbers are pretty dreadful but you can't have everything.

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.

( ... ) after several years of Hollywood digging into ever deeper wells of gross-out smut, this is a real reversal of fortune.

There are things to whinge about here. But Pitch Perfect proves impossible to resist.

It's a lightweight confection, but Pitch Perfect is great fun while the fat lady (and the skinny one) sings.

Even if Pitch Perfect doesn't stand up to much scrutiny, it's still an enjoyable romp on the surface.

It's like a superior, wittier double-episode of Glee.

The song's the same, but Pitch Perfect is a great cover version.

The plot won't surprise but it's fun and freaky in equal measure.

Hugely enjoyable comedy that hits all the right notes, thanks to a razor-sharp script, impressively staged musical numbers and a pair of brilliant comic performances from Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson.

Kendrick's alt-girl good-naturedly holds it all together, leaving room for Australian star Wilson to really shine with some inspired improv while comedy nuggets are strewn elsewhere ...
