Critic Reviews for Pitch Perfect 2
Say what you will about the film's wielding of stereotypes -- it genuinely loves its characters.
What felt like winking cheekiness in the first movie can come across now more like clumsy provocation.
A cappella isn't something everyone wants to do, as Beca constantly reminds us, but for this kid, it's all she's ever wanted to do. And when Pitch Perfect 2 is at its best, it makes you feel, for just a second, like you want to, too.
The music is better and the comedy is worse.
This is a rare comedy sequel that works, so let's hope they don't do a third.
Audience Reviews for Pitch Perfect 2
When the original came out, I wasn't that into Anna Kendrick, but in the last three years, I've really grown to hate-like her for the annoyingly talented, enviably petite, infinity-threat powerhouse she is. Elizabeth Banks proves a competent director in this installment, charting the trajectory of some real-life senioritis challenges for the stagnant Bellas: Beca gophering and ultimately impressing a bigshot music producer played by Key and/or Peele, Fat Amy taking a chance on Bumper (with non-aca backing track??), Chloe finally graduating from super-senior status, and Aubrey channeling her Type-A control freak mojo into a team-building retreat. The best aca-performances of the movie are the riff-off invitational, the training montage, and the campfire reprise of "Cups," but unfortunately, the parts that I expected to bring das haus down (the Das Sound Machine sets, the Bellas' final set, Hailee Steinfeld's audition, and the Jessie J-penned generic pop song "Flashlight")...didn't. Katey Sagal has a surprisingly nice singing voice though!
I don't know if I'm just getting old, or if comedies lately are just that bland and generic. This was just okay background material. Some nice songs (and some irritating ones). Rebel Wilson is also highly irritating here. I don't mind her, and she's okay in some movies, but I don't think she really fits here. The story is just a rehash of the first one. All so so. Glad it was a free rental.
Pitch Perfect 2 is aca-mazing! Enough said. 4/5
