Absolutely awful, a Glee fan's dream but torture for everyone else.

Loved it a lot and not a fan of Glee at all. . Have to say this review is spot on.

I saw a preview of this film and walked out after about twenty minutes- very predictable- and NOT very funny, unless you lke obvious humor; it clearly thinks it's cleverer than it is. For fans of Glee- and girls that like teenage romcom-musical silliness only. It's irritatingly a geek empowerment film (whereby now, there's a sub-group below the geeks?!), and a new genre, that personally I'm already getting a bit sick of. And why are most of the actors clearly in their late-twenties playing teenagers!

Went in expecting nothing and got one of the funniest films of the year. Rebel Wilson and Anna Kendrick really rock it with this one. If you like the type of humour that 30 Rock offers, then this is right up your street.

I loved this film, it was better than I expected it to be by far!! I was thinking it was going to be a bit too Glee-esque, but it was more like Bridesmaids/Ted/Mean Girls.

Honestly one of my favourite films of the year (and I've seen a hell of a lot of films this year). I was grinning from ear to ear by the end, as was everyone else in the audience - even the men!

Highly recommended.

Thought it was ok but advertising it as a cross between Ted & Bridesmaids is total BULLSHIT! if not just that's it's a 12a. The main saving grace is Rebel Wilson & the 2 commentators (Higgins & Banks).
3/5

In my opinion, the type of humour was similar to Ted (adult yet immature, edgy, etc) and in my opinion the female camaraderie was similar to that of Bridesmaids.

There aren't many films like this around, especially with almost entirely female leads, so it's hard to find comparisons. Was just doing my best!

4 Stars?? That is the funniest thing about Pitch Perfect... the good reviews. "You know Titanium? That's my jam." enough said. I think Nurofen had something to do with the making of this, definitely falsely advertised as "this years bridesmaids" as I strangely missed every funny part. In its defense this is a slightly unfair review as I couldn't even make it to the end, Awful.

I found this to be rather funny. In fact, I would say it's the funniest film I saw in the cinema in 2012, other than The Muppets. The humour has a higher hit rate than in Ted (which I also enjoyed) but the 'Bridesmaids meets Ted' tag line is just lazy marketing quite frankly - I would say it had more in common with Mean Girls (although I haven't watched that for a while...).

If I hadn't read / heard glowing reviews, the trailer would have put me off as it made it look like some kind of hellish offspring of Glee and Step Up. Needless to say I had some funny looks off my mates when I recommended it.

That being said, I'll happily watch Elizabeth Banks and Anna Kendrick in anything. They're 27%ers in my eyes, up there with Amy Adams and Sam Rockwell.

I thoroughly enjoyed Pitch Perfect. I was waiting about 4 months for it come out in the UK, as the US got it in Oct. I watched it in 2012 so it's definitely my favourite comedy film of 2012. :D quirky, seriously funny (especially Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, seriously rocked it). seriously fancy Skylar Asti who plays Jesse...;) I'm glad you guys gave it 4 stars well deserved. I was singing along by myself to myself...haha it's also definitely a gender-less film, men would enjoy it as would women...<3

Put your prejudices to the side and you'll have plenty of fun.

Makes me laugh the people that come on here and start talking like they're film experts.

"Pitch Perfect" is NOT a film that's made to win Oscars and other various prestigious award. No. This film is made to please it's TARGET AUDIENCE. In my opinion to be a good reviewer you have to understand what the target audience would take from it and how it is suited to them and for that reason Pitch Perfect is, well, perfect. It's light, funny and slightly predictable but that's okay because the actors definitely perform well and the modern day music makes it more appealing to teenagers today.

I have, and always will, dislike Glee. It's to in your face and tries far too hard. Pitch Perfect is the opposite of that. It doesn't take itself too seriously, at all.

So if you want an easy watch that is enjoyable, go see it. It's fun!
