Pitch Perfect (3 Stars)
Becca is a teenage girl who goes to college to please her father. What she really wants to do is go to Los Angeles to become a disc jockey. She finds college life boring, but her father tells her that she would enjoy it if she gave it a chance. He says that she should join a college club, and if she still doesn't enjoy college at the end of the first year he will agree to her dropping out, and he will give her money to start a new life in Los Angeles. That's a fair deal, so she joins the Barden Bellas, an all-girl a cappella group.
The film was an enormous success, making a profit of $100 million at the box office. I find it difficult to understand why. I don't find the film particularly funny, and the musical elements are of a lesser quality than the TV series "Glee". The supporting characters aren't well developed. While watching it I got to know Becca, but the rest of the girls in the group were like strangers. Just pretty faces that I couldn't relate to.
