If you haven’t seen Pitch Perfect 2 yet and aren’t sure what all the hype is about, Moriya Bradley of our sister site Mormons at the Megaplex shared a review when it first came out.
When Pitch Perfect (2012) came out, it’s safe to say that it took the world by storm. It was a relatively low budget “musical” if you will be based on the book by Mickey Rapkin, and the first week after it came out, it was all anyone could talk about. The quick wit script combined with a cast of diverse, fabulous ladies, makes it no surprise that the film is now quoted and applauded everywhere. The sequel, Pitch Perfect 2, is no exception. Returning cast members include Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ben Platt, Anna Camp, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean, Adam DeVine, Hana Mae Lee, John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks.
While I do think that the original is still superior, this was one sequel that I did enjoy. All of the best characters are back with their hilarious one liners, which is all anyone can really hope for. The plot was slightly more lacking than its predecessor, and I wasn’t as big of a fan of the song choices for the sequel. While the humor is extremely funny, it is adult humor. Some of it can be quite offensive, so it isn’t for children or those who are faint of heart. The racial and sexist slurs are more frequent and pronounced than the first film, which some may be fine with and some won’t be. Like I said, it isn’t a movie for people sensitive to those types of comments. I haven’t laughed that hard in a movie in a very long time, so while the content isn’t squeaky clean, it’s still very enjoyable for those who were a fan of the first film.
