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.
Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon), a fashionable sorority queen is dumped by her boyfriend. She decides to follow him to law school, while she is there, she figures out that there is more to her than just looks.
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.Written by

So, are you interested?
Sorry, it's just... it's pretty lame.
A-ca-scuse me? Synchronized lady dancing to a Mariah Carey chart-topper is not lame!
We sing all over the world, and we compete in national championships!
We played the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, you bitch!

At the end of the credits, there is a single tone from an apparent a capella group. See more »
When my girlfriend suggested put this on I mimed blowing my brains out with an imaginary revolver.
That was a mistake. This is a great, fun film!
An all girl acapella group have to regain their crown by winning a competition.
So a motley crew of underdogs is assembled, including our main character, to challenge the superior competition.
The characters are heavily stereotyped, and this is the source of a lot of the comedy.
I found the characters engaging and lovable, and laughed along with most of the gags.
The cynical, misogynistic, judgemental, biased commentators were especially funny.
The singing segments are short and sharp and just enough to get your foot tapping without going full blown Mary Poppins.
I didn't expect (or particularly want) to enjoy this but I did a lot.
My recommendation is that even if this is not your kind of movie force yourself to watch the first fifteen minutes, their is a good chance you will make it to the end with a smile on your face.
