Anna Kendrick + Rebel Wilson = Awesome Movie
I LOVED this movie. No seriously, I really loved this movie. I thought I would like it after seeing the trailer since I was already a fan of acapella back in college. Not to mention, I also have a crush on Anna Kendrick after seeing her in her Academy Award nominated performance in Up in the Air. And how can u not love Rebel Wilson after her hilarious performance in Bridesmaids? Combine these two amazing actresses with acapella and you've got a hit movie on your hands.
Kendrick plays Beca, an edgy freshman trying to fit in at college, who is focused on becoming a big DJ one day. She reluctantly joins the campus all-girl acapella group The Bellas and befriends a group of mismatched misfits that become a band of soulful sisters. They compete against their campus arch-rivals the Treblemakers for a chance to win the inter-collegiate national acapella championship. Comedy, romance and mash-ups ensue throughout.
Anna Kendrick really impressed me with her singing voice (not to mention her rapping skills in No Diggity!). Rebel Wilson has so many lines that make u burst out laughing in this movie. The script is snappy and the acting is sharp. But u can't help but sing-along with the Bellas to songs like Just the Way u Are, Tonight is the Night and Titanium. It's basically Glee for big kids but way funnier!
The buzz from the voorbeeld screenings like the one I saw has been so positive that Universal is releasing it in select theaters early on September 28. Pitch Perfect opens nation-wide on October 5!
Go see this movie!
