Watch Pitch Perfect
Pitch Perfect is a fine example of how A Capella concerts can be presented on the silvery screen without much interference from a pesky plot line. Most music lovers will enjoy this one as the popular unaccompanied vocal form is showcased along with many new talents. This is primarily a clean cut version of college with only passing mention of troubling topics. Parents should feel comfortable taking mature children to listen as a nearly all white bread cast sings in beautiful harmony. The pitch in Pitch Perfect is that college students are actively engaged in dueling vocals as they belt out choral renditions of several contemporary, as well as a few classic, hits. Pitch Perfect should be number one with a bullet in a perfect world.
Rated PG-13 and having a run time of one-hour-and-52-minutes, this is a movie that is appropriate for the Barbie Doll generation and the date night crowd. There are only hints of panty raid type college behavior when most films featuring this age group have blatant sex scenes. Language includes that word that only a veterinarian is allowed to use in polite society. Basically though, the average person will not find much objectionable about this film. Still though, if the average family includes those who want no bad language or sexuality in their movies, a computer animated film may be preferable.
This film may in fact have such quality vocal performances to be considered a vehicle for such. Front and center performances by unfamiliar faces who release, well, perfect pitch are nonstop elements. High School choir departments will not just flock to see the film; they will probably be ordering the sheet music. Perfect Pitch stays an octave above the rest in a musical sense but struggles like a banshee to avoid a PG rating. That would, obviously, be death at the box office. It succeeds in staying just a hair shy of squeaky clean in plot and situation. That's a fine line to be sure since there are those who say Barbie is too sexy and toy makers have capitalized on that fact for over 50 years.
But the plot is a simple creative difference between factions in a college A Capella group and most viewers will not lose sleep after seeing it. Some elements of bullying are evident but the outcome is sweet music for those weary of too much real life tragedy. It will be hard to leave the theater without singing at least one of the songs from this soundtrack, however. A comedy to be sure but also an amazingly talented list of vocal performances is to be found in Pitch Perfect: a fine tribute to the most challenging musical form, A Capella.
Pitch Perfect is an Comedy, Music, Romance movie that was released in 2012 and has a run time of 1 hr 52 min. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.1 and a MetaScore of 66.
