Pitch Perfect

The film is a standard finding yourself whilst at college kind of film. The film deals with various singing groups so kind of feels like a rip off of Glee. The similarities to Glee are obvious but are also slightly misleading as each can stand up on its own. It’s like writing off The Wire because NYPD Blue existed.

Like most teen films, Pitch Perfect has a blend of mismatched people and the joy of the film is the friction between these people. It certainly provided sufficient laughs to justify its’ billing as a comedy, though it is the standard of the singing that will most probably make me watch it again.

Some of the musical sequences are really impressive. Though the film contains various songs, the soundtrack seems to only contain singing from the film. This isn’t a bad thing as these tracks are still impressive.
