Pitch Perfect seemingly came out of nowhere and became such a hit that it led to two sequels. The film was a musical comedy focused upon the unlikely topic of acapella. Right at the start it set the tone with the reigning champs the Barden University Treblemakers laying down a great track with commentators Gail (Elizabeth Banks) and John (John Michael Higgins) making sarcastic and snide comments. Then the female group the Barden Bellas come out dressed like stewardesses and Aubrey (Anna Camp) while signing her solo vomits all over the stage. Those would be the elements that would make this story so successful, you had some great music by the acapella groups, a lot of comedy and satire as well.
Besides the singing the movie would take full advantage of the ensemble cast. The standout would be Fat Amy played by Rebel Wilson who would make self-deprecating comments while also being a boss.
Overall it was a fun movie with plenty of great music as well. It deserved all the attention it got.
