Pitch Perfect Reviews

Mathew DeKinder
Suburban Journals of St. Louis

And sure, while fresh-faced actors belting out reworked top-40 hits sounds tolerably safe and familiar, Pitch Perfect makes Glee look like Mad Men.

ABC Radio (Australia)

Great young actors ... are encouraged to seriously overplay their particular stereotype, which makes the film grating and repetitive ... Obviously green-lit in the wake of Glee, it makes a joke at that show's expense, setting a challenge it fails to win.

Pitch Perfect isn't particularly bad. It isn't particularly anything. And that's what's most disappointing about it. That so many talented people could have worked so hard to produce something so... nothing.

As far as the so-called humour goes, we're operating on a sliding scale from lazy to downright offensive.

It's a twentysomething song-and-dance movie built around rival a cappella groups. That's more exciting than dueling string quartets, I suppose - but no, the quartets would be performing better material.

Pitch Perfect looks, sounds, and feels like pretty much every other movie that features a singing or dancing competition.

Without precious vocal purity, all we're left with is a lame sense of humor, dark areolas, and a vomit slip 'n slide.

Oh, the gag-packed trailer spoiled the entire film.

As mean-spirited as failed 'American Idol' auditions.

This is another one of those movies that feels like it emerged from the Great Hollywood Blender of Movie Ideas.

The throwaway lines in Kay Cannon's script are so many and so expertly deployed that you basically spend the whole movie digging through the trash.

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).

Though likable and energetic, the movie is so eager to put a finger on every pulse that it loses the rhythm.

More annoying than entertaining, the setup scenes and characters are equally ludicrous.

Amusing though the movie can be, there's something missing in the warmth department. Like songs without accompaniment, its jokes lack any charm or liking for the characters.

'Pitch Perfect' strives to be edgy, yet it never quite lets go of wanting to be comfy at the same time.

Often it feels like a soundtrack in search of a movie.

This film could have done with a few more mouth beats and unlikely moments of extracurricular celebrity.

There's plenty of reason to doubt it has enough self-awareness to realize how awkward its mesh of cynicism and sincerity is.

The movie is far too aware of its influences, especially when it imitates Bring It On's silly "cheerocracy"-style slang with its own overextended series of aca-neologisms.
