Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
The Rocker tells the story of a failed drummer who is given a second chance at fame. Robert "Fish" Fishman is the extremely dedicated and astoundingly passionate drummer for the eighties ... See full summary »
In this irreverent comedy, a failed actor-turned-worse-high-school-drama-teacher rallies his Tucson, AZ students as he conceives and stages politically incorrect musical sequel to Shakespeare's Hamlet.
The new season of "American Dreamz," the wildly popular television singing contest, has captured the country's attention, as the competition looks to be between a young Midwestern gal (Moore) and a showtunes-loving young man from Orange County (Golzari). Recently awakened President Staton (Quaid) even wants in on the craze, as he signs up for the potential explosive season finale.
The sisters come back to Delores's show to get her back as Sister Mary Clarence to teach music to a group of students in their parochial school which is doomed for closure. One of the girls, who is the most talented of the bunch, is forbidden to sing by her mother, although the choir has made it to the state championship. A group of stereotypical incompetent monks tries to stop them. Written by

When the students are on the basketball court, Lauryn Hill's character, Rita, starts rapping. Her rap wasn't a part of the script. See more »
In the final performance of Joyful, Joyful, as the camera crane hovers over the act then changes to a shot of Whoopi Goldberg conducting and dancing with the group you can clearly see a camera move into the dancers behind Whoopi before it cuts to the next shot. See more »
I just love to read some of the negative comments on a film like this. This is a movie about a Las Vegas headliner who is called to help deal with unruly kids at a Catholic school. You were expecting maybe Schindler's List? When did it become such a crime just to enjoy a delightful movie packed with talent all geared toward entertainment?
And what talent. Whoopi Goldberg, Lauryn Hill, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kathy Najimy, Maggie Smith, James Coburn, Michael Jeter, and more. It's adorable and it handily meets its goal of being entertaining. All I can say is that I pity people who have become so jaded, or are so concerned with being cool, that they can't enjoy such a funny and charming film.
