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.
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.
When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguised as him, and proceeds to fall for one of his soccer teammates, and soon learns she's not the only one with romantic troubles.
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.

Things Lilly says almost inaudibly during the movie: "My name is Lilly (surname), and I was born with gills like a fish," (Aca auditions) "What happened last year? And, do you guys want to see a dead body?" (First new Bellas rehearsal scene) "I did a stint in County," (In Beca's room after she is released from police custody), "I set fires to feel joy," (to Donald on the Treble's bus) "I ate my twin in the womb."

In the finals, as the Bellas are about to go on stage for their performance, Beca is the one to lead them out. In the next shot, Chloe can clearly be seen as the first to emerge onto the stage. See more »
The Trebles don't respect us, and if we let them penetrate us, we are giving them our power.
Not a good enough reason to use the word 'penetrate.'

Do not watch this trash ever, please!!! Ever!!! What a failure!
What a rare disaster! Pointless, talentless, disgusting not even movie but piece of trash!!!
What an ugly Beca!!! And I am not an angry person, but after I watched this waste of money and time, I am very angry at this pure ugliness. I will not run out of curse for idiots who came up with this idea. Awful!!! I gave it score 1 just because they don't have COMPLETE ABSOLUTE ZERO in the system. Trust me , it is real Zero! This is very intellectually degrading and it makes people with brain nauseous and the music is horrifying tasteless pop and the actors look like twilight monsters with unrealistic two dimensional static personalities showing horrible examples to people who watch this. Please never watch NO COSTUMES AT ALL and the costume designer is a fraud!!!!!
