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.
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 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. 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 »
Twice we see the sign on the door of the radio station showing 85.7 FM while we hear it advertised as 95.7 FM. (Also, frequencies below 87.5 FM are not used in the United States.) See more »
Hi! Any interest in joining our a cappella group?
Oh, right, this is like, a thing now.
Oh, totes! We sing covers of songs, but we do it without any instruments. It's all from our mouths!

I absolutely loved this movie. Saw an advanced screening and the entire theater was laughing and clapping throughout the movie! Refreshing to see a comedy and musical combo. A lot like Glee (minus the cheesy factor) mixed with witty comedy like in Bridesmaids and other modern popular comedies. Great casting! Any college girl is bound to love it. This is a movie even my mom would enjoy. It held my interest throughout and i think it was well produced. My boyfriend even enjoyed the comedy aspect of it! A great girls night out movie choice or even a date night movie. I feel like overall everybody loved it, I definitely did. I hope this movie earns the recognition it deserves. Its going to be a hit among young audiences like myself!
