Three years have passed since the Barden Bellas proved that they were just as good as the boys when they became the first all-female group to win a national title. But after a disastrous performance at the Lincoln Center leads to scandal, the school strips them of their performing duties. All seems lost until they are given one last chance: win the cappella world championships in Denmark and they will be reinstated. Can the girls get their act together or will they lose everything?

Oh my god, what a great movie. I attend Emerson College which was lucky enough to get advanced screening tickets ( don’t mean to brag) so I thought, my the heck not. See, I was not going to spent money on this show originally, but after watching it, I thought of what I would have missed out on. It’s a musical, but in no way … Continue reading Pitch Perfect
