This campus comedy is like Glee - only bigger, meaner and funnier. Anna Kendrick plays Beca, a would-be DJ who becomes embroiled in the cut-throat world of university a cappella singing. Aubrey (Anna Camp), the uptight soloist of the Barden Bellas, was literally sick with nerves at the previous year's competition, leading to a humiliating defeat. But with Beca's help, the troupe revamps itself to be easier on the eye and ear - despite some stereotypical characters like the vociferous Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) - and the girls once again pit their vocal cords against male rivals The Treblemakers. It's perfectly obvious where the story is headed, but razor-sharp energy and a terrific script make up for fistfuls of clichés. It's a lightweight confection, but Pitch Perfect is great fun while the fat lady... and the skinny one... sing.

Plot Summary
