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

Beca's headphones are Sony MDR-7506 and Beyer Dynamic DT770pro, both large diaphragm closed earcup designs favored among DJs and broadcasters. See more »

Goofs

Just before Beca's attempt to make amends with Jesse, she turns a corner on the way to his room. As the shot begins, there is an extra "walking" down the hallway in the opposite direction; however it is clear that the extra was standing still as the shot began and started walking as Beca turned the corner, which looks highly unnatural.

Watch out - you're going to like it whether you want to or not!
5 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We two 50+ grandmas went to see this film on the spur of the moment because we enjoy musical movies. We were probably the oldest people in the audience which ranged down to younger teens but everyone, regardless of age, was laughing and having a grand time. Much less schmaltzy and self-serious than Glee, but wonderful vocals and dancing and personality. You can't help but fall in love with the hilariously quirky characters, especially Rebel Wilson as the irrepressible Fat Amy, Elizabeth Banks as Gail, the sexually frustrated female announcer, and Hanna Mae Lee as Lilly, the wackadoo who releases the most shocking comments in a voice that barely exceeds a murmur. Fun, feel-good and highly entertaining.
