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.

At one point, while Beca is attending the activities fair and checking out the booth for the DJs (Deaf Jews), a spirited game of Quidditch (from the Harry Potter books and movies) can be seen going on in the background, including players straddling broomsticks and one player shouting "Throw me the Quaffle!" Simulated Quidditch games have been enacted on a number of university campuses in recent years. See more »

Aca-mazing. Truly enjoyed Pitch Perfect.
12 September 2012 | by (College Station) – See all my reviews

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!
