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

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 »

Better than the first
26 May 2015 | by ddoyle2017See all my reviews

I have always loved the first movie, and when I saw that another one was coming, I was really excited. I saw the trailer and thought right then and there that this one will be much better than the first. I rarely say that sequels outmatch the original, but in this case, Pitch Perfect 2 takes the cake. It was very similar to the first movie. There were some new things don't get me wrong, but overall, the storyline was basically the same as the first one, just in a different place. It had the same big competition vibe like the original, but this time, they were competing on a global scale. Plus, the same arrangement with the characters was happening too. There was the new girl that doesn't fit in in the beginning but ends up being the hero/ co-hero at the end of the movie. Emily was a similar character to Becca in the first movie. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing. I just wished that they had done it a little differently. The humor was excellent. Fat Amy was by far the best character in the whole movie. She is really funny in some scenes, and I love the concept of all the boys loving her. It makes her feel special, which is funny in itself. Pitch Perfect 2 was a lot more focused on the humor, as opposed to focused on the teamwork and success of the Bellas. I laughed a lot more during this movie then the last movie. They were both really funny. Overall, this movie was really good. and I hope that they make a third installment.
