After a humiliating command performance at The Kennedy 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.
Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
Hoping to bring his family closer together and to recreate his childhood vacation for his own kids, an adult Rusty Griswold takes his wife and two sons on a cross-country road trip to Walley World. Needless to say, things don't go quite as planned.
The Pyramid in Memphis, TN is seen on the Griswold's left. This would only happen if you crossed Mississippi River heading east into Tennessee from Arkansas on I-40. Since they are heading west to California, then this scene should have been shot as they were leaving Memphis no arriving. See more »
If you have discerning tastes, don't see this movie. If you need escapism from the daily grind and are not in the mood to over-think anything, this is a good movie for you. It's true; it is crude, much cruder than the original. Most comedies today are just that.
The people responsible for this movie were not thinking lets win an Oscar, they were thinking lets make people laugh. According to the theater I was in, it worked. We were all laughing. I wish it had been longer with more situations, but I enjoyed what I saw.
I recommend not taking your teen to see it. Let them wait till they're 17, not because they are too young, but as a mom it was really awkward.
I will say this about Chevy Chase, he will always be Clark, but keep in mind people age and put on weight. I say so what! The man is funny as hell! This movie will not hold up to the original, don't see it without seeing the original; you won't get the jokes.
