   Three years ago, the musical comedy “Pitch Perfect” was an instant hit and now, the sequel, “Pitch Perfect 2,” is doing it again.
After embarrassing not only themselves but the entire a cappella community in front of the President of the United States of America, the Barden Bellas must compete in an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to prove themselves again.
The original Bellas, Beca (Anna Kendrick), Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) and Chloe (Brittany Snow), are joined by a couple new faces such as fun-loving freshman Emily (Hailee Steinfeld). But music and the Bellas aren’t the only thing they’re worried about. As senior year begins to come to an end, the seniors must begin thinking about life after college and life after the Barden Bellas. It’s a bittersweet moment for all.
Making sequels to follow such hit movies is always difficult, but director Elizabeth Banks has created a beautiful ending for the Pitch Perfect girls.
Though not as funny as the original, this movie will still make you laugh. It’s rated PG-13 for sexual innuendoes, but is still a family fun movie for older kids. With music, love and suspense, this movie is a definite must-see.
