Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
The Barden Bellas are a collegiate, all-girls a cappella singing group thriving on female pop songs and their perfect looks. After a disastrous failing at last year's finals, they are forced to regroup. Among the new recruits is freshman Beca, an independent, aspiring DJ with no interest in the college life. But after she meets Jesse, from the rival all-male a cappella group, Beca has a new outlook and takes it upon herself to help the Bellas find their new look and sound and get back into the competition.Written by
All the Barden University scenes were filmed on the campus of LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. See more »
During the activities fair, Aubrey and Chloe say that they need to recruit 8 girls. Thus, a team to be able compete in the ICCAs must have at least 10 members. However, when the Regionals are happening the team with the pink dresses standing in front of the Bellas has only 8 members present and the team on stage (the Sockapellas) has only 6 members.

Even though some of you are pretty thin, you all have fat hearts, and that's what matters.

At the end of the credits, there is a single tone from an apparent a capella group. See more »
I wasn't quite dragged to this but nor was I rushing to sit in a cinema full of 500 teenage girls to watch a Glee rip-off.
It didn't take any dragging to get me back in the second time. This movie is being so undersold. It should be bigger than the Hangover.
This is what Glee should have been. The music is awesome. The dancing is awesome. The script is awesome. The performances are awesome. Some of the set piece performance scenes had people in the audiences spontaneously clapping.
Anna Kendrick is amazing!! She is angsty and grumpy when she needs to be without ever losing out on being sexy and alluring and smart.
Rebel Wilson is hilarious! She takes set-up gags and lines that deserve a snort of derision and makes you fall off your seat with her delivery.
Elizabeth Banks (with more than a little help from John Michael Higgins) almost steals her own movie out from underneath them all despite having less lines than Arnie in the Terminator.
And the supporting cast are fantastic. Even where they are trying to play stereotypes they take enough of the edge off them to make them lovable in their own right.
The musical director and the script writers for this absolute gem deserve to be picking up armloads of awards. The script synopsis is basic, nothing clever at all, you know the ending from the start. But that doesn't matter, the journey to that ending is simply fantastic.
And it is worth going twice. Some of the jokes are well hidden. Tucked in behind others so you are still laughing at the first and you miss the follow-up. Some are even hidden in plain sight but you are too busy watching something more obvious. The rape whistle gag (in the trailer so not a spoiler, sneaks back in near the end but in such a hectic scene you can easily miss it).
