When I saw Pitch Perfect 2, which was released May 15, I thought it was an awesome movie. It was hilarious and it had the perfect amount of drama and comedy. There were also some new characters that fit in with the original crew just right.
Most of the characters from the first Pitch Perfect movie starred in the second installment, including Becca (Anna Kendrick), Fat Amy (Patricia) (Rebel Wilson), Chloe (Brittany Snow), Jesse (Skylar Astin), Benji (Ben Platt), Lilly (Hana Mae Lee), Bumper (Adam DeVine), Stacie (Alexis Knapp), Cynthia Rose (Ester Dean), Jessica (Kelley Jackle), Ashley (Shelly Regner) and even though Aubrey (Anna Camp) graduated, she still had a part.
There were also a couple new additions to the Barden Bellas: Flo (Chrissie Fit), who’s a ‘stereotypical’ Latino, and makes a lot of jokes about it, and Emily (Hailee Steinfeld), an incoming freshman whose mom was a Bella.
Not to give too much away, but the story picked up without a hitch. Chloe, who was supposed to graduate with Aubry at the end of the first Pitch Perfect, purposely kept failing to stay in college so she could continue to be a Bella. The people who were freshmen in the first movie are now seniors. Becca got an internship at a music production place and seems to be the only Bella thinking about the future. There are some new romances that occur too, and they are adorable.
There’s, of course, hilarious comments from the announcers, John (John Michael Higgins) and Gail (Elizabeth Banks), who always crack me up. As you keep watching these movies, you will continue to pick up on the sarcastic things they say. It’s so funny how they say their lines and always have a smile while they talk; it seems the actors are just about to crack up from the ridiculousness they’re saying.
The only thing that bothered me a little was that they skipped over two years of school and went straight to their senior year. I feel like they could’ve made more Pitch Perfect movies if they went through each year of college.
Other than that small thing, I loved the movie. I’d watch this movie many more times and I suggest everyone see it if you haven’t already.
