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 Barden Bellas are a collegiate, all-girls a cappella singing group thriving on female pop songs and their perfect looks. After a disastrous failing at last year's finals, they are forced to regroup. Among the new recruits is freshman Beca, an independent, aspiring DJ with no interest in the college life. But after she meets Jesse, from the rival all-male a cappella group, Beca has a new outlook and takes it upon herself to help the Bellas find their new look and sound and get back into the competition.

The song that Beca (Anna Kendrick) performs at her audition, "Cups (When I'm Gone)," is a combination of a children's rhythmic percussion game played with drinking cups with a song that dates back to the late 1920s or early 1930s: "When I'm Gone," written by A.P. Carter and first recorded by his seminal folk-country group The Carter Family. The song and the game were first combined in 2009 by the British group Lulu and the Lampshades; Anna Kendrick heard this version and decided to include it in Pitch Perfect (2012). In the States, the song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 93 for the week ending January 12, 2013, even before the song was released as a single. By its 32nd week on that chart, it had climbed to number 6 (for the week ending August 17, 2013). See more »

This is a movie when you are sick and take look at your DVD's you will pick out and watch to feel better. It is in the range of Sister Act and High School Musical, movies you definitely watch more than once. Anna Kendrick carries the movie with ease and leaves enough room for the rest to blossom. The singing is pretty good, Brittney Snow an Anna stand out for me. The "Just the way you are" clip is on youtube and will give you a good impression. Off course there's a girl meets boy story in it, there should be. A nice guy is hitting on here and she let's him in one bit at a time. Simple and well written imho. The final performance you have to watch and listen more than once to understand all the detail and appreciate the arrangement. There's only one disturbing thing in the movie and that's way to much puke, way over the top. But not one movie is perfect ;) If you like feel good movies with singing, you will enjoy this movie!
