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.
In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean, who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert after breaking parole, agrees to care for a factory worker's daughter. The decision changes their lives forever.
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
The song "Starships" is sung in the movie as a background song. It is sung a capella by everyone in the movie, but it is not on the Pitch Perfect movie soundtrack CD. See more »

Musical, good enough to be enjoyed by all music-lovers!
Good enough musical! Maybe for the first time, a musical is being done with no instruments at all; and they were not missed. The mainly female cast was pretty weird and funny, in all the right ways.
I liked the different mixes of the songs explored in the movie. And liked how 'The Breakfast Club' can influence people even today.
Anna Kendrick is charming as always. But Rebel Wilson and Elizabeth Banks are the ones who deliver the most shockingly funny lines in the movie.
Philip French from 'Observer UK' says, "It's 80% affectionate parody of this sort of musical, but the numbers are taken seriously and are admirably choreographed, and the performances are sprightly." - and it's quite apt.
Anyone who loves music and musicals will easily like the movie!
