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.
For those of you who know me, you can probably already guess what I thought of this movie. It is about young adults, it involves music and has a romantic element.
I LOVED this movie. It was so completely fantastic. The main character was really understated and I loved that about her. The love interest was a really great guy. I fell for him just a little bit... and man - could he sing! The rest of the cast were all exaggerated characters and so funny. The story is filled with great one-liners that my husband and I keep repeating to each other.
My only aversion was two small scenes involving some puke... I'm not great with puke.
As far as the music was concerned - it was amazing. The singing was top quality, with awesome harmonies and great mash-ups. I ended up buying a bunch of songs off iTunes straight after watching it and my poor family has had to endure hours of me singing the same songs!
If you like a feel-good movie with excellent music and lots of really good laughs, then this one is definitely worth checking out.
5 stars from me :D
