Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
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.
A young coming-of-age tale about a teenage boy, Simon Spier, goes through a different kind of Romeo and Juliet story. Simon has a love connection with a boy, Blue, by email, but the only problem is that Simon has no idea who he's talking to. Simon must discover who that boy is--who Blue is. Along the way, he tries to find himself as well.Written by

At the Halloween party, after Leah puts the "Ronaldo" label back on Nick's shirt, the position the label is in on the shirt changes in each shot. Leah puts it a little bit above the number 7 on Nick's shirt, but in the next shot it covers the top of the number. It then moves back up later on. See more »
Tell me about this guy you love.
Yeah. It'll help me kill off hetero Simon in my mind.
You don't have to kill him off.
He's dead, Si. Hacking him up with a mental machete as we speak.
All right, fair enough.

At the end of the closing credits, on the right side of the screen, it reads "#gtfo". This is an internet initialism for "get the fuck out." It is, in effect, telling audience members to leave the theater. See more »

First, it was definitely the best movie adaptation of a book I've ever seen. Hands down. It was also an extremely authentic story to begin with, and it translated so well as a movie.
Second, I wish this movie had been around when I was younger. The message of love and acceptance was so powerful, and the way Simon and his friends were portrayed was amazing. Kudos to the actors. The whole theater was cheering, laughing, and crying with them.
Representation matters. Our kids need to see themselves on screen in movies like this.
