Who'd have thought that a film about unaccompanied college singing would be such a big hit, but that's exactly what the first
was. So, three years later, here's another one, and it's kind of fun, too, though director Elizabeth Banks (who also plays one of the contest commentators) has to work harder at it than Jason Moore did with the original. Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson return as members of campus
group the Barden Bellas, here entering an international contest that no US team has won before. It's the standard format for a follow-up. You stay small and local for your first film, then you go global for the second. Sassy and smartly written, the film starts strongly, but waffles badly through the middle hour, before rediscovering its mojo in the competition climax. Like most sequels,
Pitch Perfect 2
isn't as good as the original, but it has its moments - enough, just about - for lovers of the first film to like this one too.
A Cappella group the Barden Bellas enjoy an unprecedented run of success, until a disastrous performance sees them banned from national competitions and beset by scandal. They attempt to turn their fortunes around and redeem their legacy by competing in the World Championships of A Cappella in Copenhagen. Comedy sequel, starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson.
