Pitch Perfect 2 is an entertaining film in the tradition of other unnecessary comedy sequels. A shadow of its predecessor that reaches for emotional payoffs that are unearned and cheap laughs that are still funny.
As we dig out from piles of new releases from before and after the holiday season, we take looks at the home video releases for Looper, Frankenweenie, Cosmopolis, Dredd, Pitch Perfect, Compliance, The Words, Hit and Run, and season one of Anger Management
Pitch Perfect is a pure fun film. It aspires to nothing more than putting a smile on your face, making you laugh and getting your toes tapping. On all three counts it’s a total success. The film is basically an unholy mix of Bring It On, Glee and Mean Girls; taking the best elements of all three, shaking them all up and spitting out one of the most simply entertaining films of the year
