The name says it all: Pitch Perfect. I seriously, didn’t see or hear anything I didn’t like. This was one of those movies you are constantly smiling through. When the characters excel, you feel overjoyed for them. When they fail, you feel their pain.
The singing in this movie was fantastic! There is a scene that takes place in a giant empty pool where a lot of the groups have gathered. They are there for a riff-off. That particular scene was so cool it gave me chill bumps. The way they can sing without any music just dumbfounds me. If you are a fan of singing movies, you can’t miss this one.
Some characters didn’t have huge roles, but they still pulled off stellar performances. Based on what I saw, we will be seeing more of these lesser known actors take off. Two thumbs up for sure!

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
