Pitch Perfect Reviews
I hated Anna Kendrick's character in this film. It's not bad acting, it has everything to do with the writing of the character. Entitled, whinny, angry for no reason, and up stuck as all get out. If you're given a free college education, free from debt, and given such great opportunities and you shit on them because it's not "your thing" then fuck you. It's one thing to make you dislike a main character and then have them go through growth and development, but I was so filled with disgust for this character that nothing that could have happened would have saved it for me. Petty, maybe, but I dare you to watch this and not feel the same about this whiny brat afterwards.
It will remind you instantly of the Bring It On franchise. It's a cliched and uninspired story featuring the outcast college freshman who ends up attracted to the outgoing good looking male counterpart who joins a crew of other misfits and blah blah blah. Anna Kendrick and company do just enough to give their characters some decent variation from the others, but sightly gags and stilted dialogue cut down the film when the musical numbers elevate it.
It's entertaining and could be used a great drinking game for an outgoing group of kids, but past the excellent dance/musical numbers and a cast filled with stars and unknowns, Pitch Perfect will only satisfy when the volume's up.
