Storyline

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.

Trivia

A special screening of the film was held on 25 September 2012 at the LSU Student Union Theater because parts of the movie were filmed on LSU's campus. The turnout for the screening was so great that only a little more than half of the students in line got in to see the movie. The producer saw that there were more students wanting to see the film and allowed a second showing immediately following the first. See more »

Hilarious Movie, especially appealing to music people!!
12 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My high school choir (and a few other area choirs) received tickets to an advanced screening of this film (I actually just got back from it). To start of, this is an awesome movie, anybody would like it. It's utterly hilarious, I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. If you're a person who's musically involved in any kind of way, you'll like it THAT much more. Great movie, automatically one of my favorites! The acting was superb. Rebel Wilson as Fat Amy stole the show, but the others, such as Anna Kendrick playing Beca and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Tommy were extremely good. I'm not sure if the actors themselves actually did the singing, but if so, they are all extremely talented.
