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.
When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguised as him, and proceeds to fall for his school's star soccer player, and soon learns she's not the only one with romantic troubles.
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

There is just something about the Barden Bellas, maybe it is the strange combination of weirdos, maybe it is because it is fun and serious at the same time, maybe it is just because it is all the songs you know in a cappella.
We know the characters for this movie, we just get to see more of them, their different and weird persona, their outbursts and strange behavior and much more. They are as I remember them from the first film and it is a joyful re-visit into this crowd of beautiful, strange, weird, loud, mousy, happy and funny people.
The scene is a bit different, for one the mean opposing a cappella group is German and the whole music competition is in Denmark, from a man who come from Denmark and live in Denmark that is not how it is here, a bit more fairytale a bit less weirdness and I have never heard of any a cappella competitions, maybe a few groups, but that is it :)
I was entertained, not as much as the first, they also had a bit to live up to, but this is still a good film, funny film and plenty of entertainment.
