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.
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.
In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
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

In my memory, I didn't really enjoy Pitch Perfect and thought they it was way overrated than it is. It has a very predictable plot, unevenly balanced characters and the only thing I like is their acapella. In their sequel, though most people don't like it as much comparing to its predecessor, I enjoyed quite a bit.
First off, though the story is very predictable, there is still some twists and turns where the Bellas struggled, from both internal and external pressure, Beca's future, and so on. Unlike the first one, which goes through rounds of competitions then got the champion at the end.
I thought that the acting is okay, still a bit uneven which some girls in the Bellas have barely said anything and the others are only remembered for their race. There are only Fat Amy, the new girl, Amy and Beca who's under the spotlight. I also think that there are too much Fat Amy in the movie, though I know that it is the laughing stock, in this movie, she seems like the leader.
Other than that, the soundtrack is fabulous and the performances are speechless. I had a wonderful time seeing everyone perform. I personally like the riff off the most; it was tense and very enjoyable.
To sum up, I love the music but thought the movie shouldn't only be about the music, still should still be some deeper character developments. Even though most people might not agree with me, I think Pitch Perfect 2 is slightly better than its predecessor (there's gonna be a lot of hate).
