I absolutely loved this movie. It was hilarious. The commercial showed some funny parts, I must agree. But the movie was 10x more better then I thought it would be. Throughout the movie, I would not stop laughing. It was really fun. And to be honest, I did not want it to end. I thought it was even better then Glee... :)

A movie in the key of "American Pie" for the 'Capellas.
This movie offers a lot - good looking college girls, crazy college girls, terrific one liners and "geeks make good" - plus the singing isn't half bad.
While I doubt it will become a 'cult classic' it's certainly different...
Who will like this movie?
Guys will like this movie (stop the groaning), parents from the '80s will like this movie, your significant others and anyone who sings or wants to sing will like this movie.
In the end everyone will probably Love Fat Amy who certainly steals the show at times but there are some stealth characters to keep a look out for.
One important note: This is not "American Idol" or "X-Factor" or even "Glee" for the big screen. This isn't TV and the movie is not for small kids. Language and explicit sexual situations/references will become cringe-worthy events for parents trying to enjoy the movie.

Great one-liners, great songs, and an awesome cast! I thought it was going to be one of those movies where all the funny parts were shown in the trailer, but it's got a lot more to it. Loved it!

I went with my sixteen year old and her friend! The music was great, and the ending is perfect. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Fun movie. Will it when any awards? Probably not, but we enjoyed if very much as did everyone else in the theater with us.
And don't believe those reviews that compare it to GLEE - it is far more edgy and funny. In fact, probably not appropriate for younger kids but that is hard to say since times have changed so much since we were parents.
Go with the attitude that you aren't going to see great writing or outstanding acting - you are just going to have a good time and laugh a little. A couple very good mash-ups, too.
I give it 4 stacked CD's (you'll get it when you see it).
