Predictable, immature, high entertainment value.
Pitch Perfect is another comedy about finding ones identity set in the midst of a college acapella competition. The outrageous jokes and one liners keeps this long movie (long compared to others in the genre) going at a good pace and you will walk out of the theater thinking, wow that movie was 2 hours long? There is a very good mix of characters, especially in the the main group that the movie focus' on. There are many comedies that have plenty of funny and wild moments, but those movies rarely get good reviews due to lack of character development or substance. Although pitch perfect does the bare minimum in the area of character development (the heroine of the movie is a dark, moody alternative loner who has to join a group of random personalities in a rag tag group of acapella members), it makes up with substance in the form of great song remixes and glee like performances. With a mindless and predictable story line and high entertainment value, I give this movie a solid B+
