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 commando 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.
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
Freddie Stroma (who plays the college radio station manager, Luke) doesn't have tattoos. Luke, however, has several, including a digital audio control panel (play, fast forward, stop, etc) inside his left forearm. Luke's college major isn't revealed in the movie, but Freddie Stroma has a bachelor's degree in neuroscience. See more »

Whoo, that little peanut can sing!
He really can. It sounds to me, though, Gail, like his boys haven't dropped yet, if you know what I mean.
If you mean his testicles, then I do, John. I do. I really do.

Hilarious Movie, especially appealing to music people!!
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.
