Storyline

The Bellas are back, and they are better than ever. After being humiliated in front of none other than the President of the United States of America, the Bellas are taken out of the Aca-Circuit. In order to clear their name and regain their status, the Bellas take on a seemingly impossible task: winning an International competition no American team has ever won. In order to accomplish this monumental task, they need to strengthen the bonds of friendship and sisterhood, and blow away the competition with their amazing aca-magic! With all new friends and old rivals tagging along for the trip, the Bellas can hopefully accomplish their dreams once again. Written by Chris Greenleaf

Trivia

Becca's boss routinely calls her by the wrong name. One name he calls her is Reggie. Keegan-Michael Key, who plays her boss, performs a Key & Peele skit on Comedy Central where as a substitute teacher he mispronounces the names during roll call. See more »

Goofs

When she is apologizing for her exposure, Fat Amy's name is listed underneath her as Patricia (Fat) Amy. In the first Pitch Perfect film, Amy states that her real name is Fat Patricia, not Fat Amy, suggesting that Patricia is her real first name. The way her name is presented in this film suggests that her first name is Patricia and her last name is Amy. See more »

Pitching Perfect
8 July 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I wouldn't call myself a fan of musicals, but I do love my "pitches" (term used by the characters of this movie just in case you were unaware of that). And I did miss them while they were gone. And it looks like this one was so successful, they will be back. And while most male actors here (even those who "survived"/came back from the first movie) are nothing more than a filler (you could argue they are having cameos), the executive for whom Kendricks character is working is pure gold (you might have seen some comedy skits of his).

Other than that, we get a great mixture of female bonding together, fights in the family, a new member, a new "villain" ("ze Germans" this time around) and a lot of Acapella. Well of course we do. One of the funniest skits is when towards the end we get that while trying to cross the street ... you'll either laugh or feel annoyed by it. For me it was the former. Same can be applied to the rest of the movie. And while I loved this one too (as I did the first one), I'm not sure a third one is/was necessary ... but I sure will Aca-watch it!
