Pitch Perfect: Acapella Nicely in Tune

Posted: May 2, 2013 in Movies


Team a winning and game cast headed by Anna Kendricks, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow and Anna Camp with a veteran Broadway musical director (Jason Moore who did Avenue Q) and it is all Pitch Perfect.  Director Moore catches that silly sweet exquisite tone that treads the line between hyperbolic “glee”-fullness and emotionally pure  innocence that makes competition and put on the show musicals like Pitch Perfect both critical and audience favorites.  This is Glee before it lost its heart to the reality TV drama crisis of the week.  Anna Kendricks, Rebel Wilson speaking in her native Aussie accent and Anna Camp give the right amount of gee whiz push and shove, charm, pride, heart and adolescent heartache that keeps Pitch Perfect humming until the next big musical number.    It is all aca-delightful.  Pitch Perfect gets a B+.
