Pitch Perfect

Knowing when to hit the notes is just as important as knowing what notes to hit. Pitch Perfect is out of tune part of the time, but it’s occasionally a surprisingly funny (and altogether formulaic and stiff) musical. Apparently, Glee is a really big thing on college campuses, so much so that a cappella singing groups compete for a big national title every year. The competition is especially fierce at Barden University, where two singing groups (the all-male Treble Makers and the all-female Barden Belles) vie for bragging rights. It’s a silly concept—essentially You Got Served with harmonies—but they got the casting right, with Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air) and bawdy Aussie Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids) leading the way. Pitch Perfect recognizes this is all pretty silly, which helps, and some of the singing is actually quite good.
