Date night this weekend, and as that usually means dinner and a movie for hubby and me, I saw the movie that will soon grace my DVD shelf (in about six months) when it's not in my DVD player. We were going to see Looper, which looks seriously kick-ass, but we were in the mood for a laugh instead of action. We're very moody movie-watchers.
Ba-bam! There it was...Pitch Perfect. I realize it's not exactly everyone's idea of a good time to see a bunch of teens prance around and sing, but throw in the absolutely hilarious, and big-girl-beautiful, Rebel Wilson, and this is a very gooood time.
In this movie, we follow an aspiring music producer Beca, played by Anna Kendrick of Twilight fame, as she tries to please her father and give college a chance. Reluctantly, she tries out for the Barden Bellas, an all-girl competing a capella group, and livens it up with her music mixes. They take on their campus rivals and though they struggle as a group, it's hilarious and fun the whole way through.
The characters are what make this movie. I can't really describe the hilarity without spoilers, but let's just say, Fat Amy isn't the only humor in this movie. I laughed so hard, I was holding my nose so my snorts were thoroughly suppressed. So very funny, and the music is stellar. I got chills quite a few times.
Basically, it boils down to this...I'd pay full-price to see this one again, and I will buy this DVD to watch over and over. Loved it!
Happy Reading and Writing (and Movie Watching),
