Pitch perfect 2 is a hilarious comedy and musical movie with lovely women.amazing music and fantastic acting.
It's been three years since the Barden Bellas (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson) became the first all-female group to win a national title. All seems well until a botched Lincoln Center performance for the president leads to a scandal that strips them of their performing duties, causing internal tension and strife. With the world championships on the horizon in Copenhagen, Denmark, the women must get their act together for their one and only shot at redemption.
Lesbians and feminists must see this excellent movie.

I hated this movie almost as soon as it started. Everything was just off. It tried way too hard to be funny forcing Rebel Wilson to have to act extra weird and quirky as opposed to just naturally weird and quirky. Becca's working at a lame recording studio while trying to tell the Bellas she's going to quit. There's like two or three new girls that I can't remember because they're not memorable.
Then they go on this lame camping expedition where Audrey now works having graduated. The group of German singers they're going up against really suck and wouldn't even be hard to beat except that the Bellas suck too. Their end performance was crap especially compared to the first movie. Pitch Perfect was hilarious, charming, original, and had great performances. Pitch Perfect 2 was strained and pointless.

After a humiliating command performance at Lincoln Center, the Barden Bellas enter an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to regain their status and right to perform.
Pitch Perfect comes back with a sequel, directed by Elizabeth Banks. Everyone is familiar with these characters by now and we all wanted to see what could happen to them after the first movie. So the good things in this acapella world aside, now we are witnessing those characters growing older and becoming real people. This film allows us to spend more time on characters that people love, to tell more of their stories and to see where these women be at three years later. While in the first one it was more about coming together, bonding and being freshmen; this film mainly deals with the notion of graduation as their in majority in their last year of college, companionship they have in college that will last forever as Bellas will always be Bellas, moving on, breaking apart, leaving the nest, staring life right in the face and going their separate ways. However they find themselves right back where they started: as underdogs of acapella. There are a lot going on this time, plot- and character -wise. Some endearing elements were taken back from the first film such as the romance between Beca and Jesse, that keep all the component in harmony as they are settled characters. Indeed they are a nice balance to the melodramatic aspect of the movie, grounded to the real stakes of this world. Yet once again Fat Amy, starring Rebel Wilson, is very charismatic. She embodies a confident woman that never thinks about her size at all. Proving that your body type doesn't determine your fate in life. Giving her a real love story with Bumper is such a good idea as she really deserves it and both actors have a great chemistry together. John Michael Higgins' character smoothly delivers his misogynic lines such as "Let's hear it from the girls too ugly to be cheerleaders!", and casual racism throughout the movie is even funnier this time around!
Moreover, new girls fit right into the dynamic of the group. They're all the same characters but pushed a little bit further, they're a little bit bigger, crazier and global. Hailee Steinfeld's character represents what Pitch Perfect has become which is that kind of bonding enthusiasm and likability. People will identify with the movie for different reasons but ultimately for the joy and happiness it spreads. Obviously men are not the targeted demographic of this movie - or basically people who don't watch Glee. Nonetheless, if you just enjoy music this film will get points with you. Musically, the songbook is far hipper with a younger song selection. Executive music producers J.Jordan and J.Michels have ensured that every performances are note-perfect and soundtrack album ready; which I have to admit rather detracts any sense of realism: it's not humanly possible to sing so in-sync spontaneously. Plus, jokes are all amazing, not one falls flat. You clearly know where the movie goes from the beginning but this film is not here for an Oscar, it's just here to be fun and show some good acapella. Finally, Banks has crafted a sequel that's edgier, sexier and best of all more female centered than the first one. Showing that women can be as funny as men, even funnier. So get over it, picthes!
Overall Pitch Perfect 2 proved once again that acapella is not lame at all, with a nerdy and inspirational movie and with much more sophisticated layered music.

. . . may be stereotypical L Words, but PITCH PERFECT 2 tops its predecessor as the most harmonious A Cappella flick ever. The Germans shape up so well in the early going that their eventual showdown with the Barden Belles seems sure to be a David versus Goliath affair, fought entirely on a totally sandy shore this time. Put another way, it's the Nazi Blitzkrieg against France. At my showing, film goers were on the edge of their seats, fearing that the Na--oops, that the Germans would win, or, worse, that the Belles would be called the winners on some sort of technicality, when they had been clearly out-classed. However, due to clever writing and innovative thinking, this sequel produces a crowd-pleasing climax that seems not only plausible but well-earned. Though the life of these Belles beyond their competitions still seems a little too pat and Tinsel Townish, their Hollywood ending on the World Stage is 100% satisfying.

I didn't think that the first movie could be beaten but I was proved wrong!! It was incredibly made and the story was great, you need to watch this movie!!! Well done Elizabeth Banks!!!
Every scene was great and the movie was perfect, it was full of jokes great songs, the new Bellas fit in well and the love story behind Fat Amy and Bumper is hilarious, their public kiss was just crazy hilarious, I think that there should have been more of them and their love life in this movie as it would have made the movie even better!! All of them grew up and they are better singers, Aubrey isn't her manipulating self and it's great!!

Pitch Perfect 2 is just as much fun as the first one. Kudos to Elizabeth Banks for her first directing role. This time our favourite Capella band are performing in front of the president and his wife. A wardrobe malfunction see's them banned from competing in the US there only hope a competition taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark.
What can I say about this film? I thought it was just as much fun as the original, the story plays out at just the right pace, all our favourite characters return for another outing, including Elizabeth Banks herself as the TV Presenter Gail.
If you liked the first film you will like this one also.
- The greatest musical everby 16 November 2015on

Hollywood has finally pulled off the greatest musical ever. The director of the pitch perfect franchise introduced a new element that is rarely found in movies. I would like to call this element 'the sweetness gesture' and how beautiful it is !. This element elevated the movie to the top by combining basic human feelings such as love, fear and anger with unexpected reactions that seek to puzzle the audience unless they become acquainted with the technique. This is embedded in each and every character as they keep responding to ordeals with humorous complexity. This makes defining each character's role partly hard because they do not expose all their feelings to the audience. The sweetness element is present between the hero and the heroin but by no means do they act conventionally. The director here defies tradition and creates a new bond between the main characters making them doubly interesting to the audience. Along with the music , which is a sheer genius, everything keeps getting interesting in the movie until the end. In both movies I was moved to tears when I reached the ending. The first time this has ever happened to me. I fell in love with the main character Becca played by Anna Kendrick. I strongly recommend these two movies 'equally' as they both present a new type of comedy and even acting, which explains its immediate success.

Summary: Bellas Barden made an huge opening mistake that cost them their reputation as professional Capella group. In order to regain their status as a group and friend they need to win World Championship of Acapella.
In my opinion, I loved 100% this sequel due the excellent choices of songs, hilarious scenes, goosebumps reaction of the final performance that actually made me cried because I felt what they felt of the fear of the tomorrow after graduation. Loved the voice of Emily Junk wow speechless. The song Flashlight wow, i cried a lot, beautiful cover song by Anna Kendrick. For me, I believe they need to leave this sequel as the final closure of Pitch Pecfect. I recommend it without a 2nd thought.
