Critic Reviews for Pitch Perfect 2

All Critics (187) | Top Critics (43)

What felt like winking cheekiness in the first movie can come across now more like clumsy provocation.

The Atlantic
Top Critic

The music is better and the comedy is worse.

Full Review… | November 10, 2015
BuzzFeed News
Top Critic

It is badly written, inexpertly directed, poorly acted, erratically paced, and features music of dubious worth.

ReelViews
Top Critic

Anna Kendrick's Beca, a mash-up maestro, spends the movie looking like she'd rather scale a fish than scale her vocals. (Maybe because Kendrick is nearly 30, and she's still playing a college student?)

Us Weekly
Top Critic

Ethnic clichés abound, college comes off as a free sleepaway camp, and the simple wonders of unaccompanied singing are inflated to Las Vegas-style bombast.

Audience Reviews for Pitch Perfect 2

When the original came out, I wasn't that into Anna Kendrick, but in the last three years, I've really grown to hate-like her for the annoyingly talented, enviably petite, infinity-threat powerhouse she is. Elizabeth Banks proves a competent director in this installment, charting the trajectory of some real-life senioritis challenges for the stagnant Bellas: Beca gophering and ultimately impressing a bigshot music producer played by Key and/or Peele, Fat Amy taking a chance on Bumper (with non-aca backing track??), Chloe finally graduating from super-senior status, and Aubrey channeling her Type-A control freak mojo into a team-building retreat. The best aca-performances of the movie are the riff-off invitational, the training montage, and the campfire reprise of "Cups," but unfortunately, the parts that I expected to bring das haus down (the Das Sound Machine sets, the Bellas' final set, Hailee Steinfeld's audition, and the Jessie J-penned generic pop song "Flashlight")...didn't. Katey Sagal has a surprisingly nice singing voice though!

I don't know if I'm just getting old, or if comedies lately are just that bland and generic. This was just okay background material. Some nice songs (and some irritating ones). Rebel Wilson is also highly irritating here. I don't mind her, and she's okay in some movies, but I don't think she really fits here. The story is just a rehash of the first one. All so so. Glad it was a free rental.
