Pitch Perfect 

Aca-go

Fat Amy for the Oscar
  • Fat Amy for the Oscar

There's scant few off notes in the harmoniously enjoyable singing comedy, Pitch Perfect. Anna Kendrick stars as the cool college freshman who mixes together mash-ups and dreams of escaping to California to work in the music industry. But after her dorm shower singing is overheard, she's begged to join the school's ragtag acapella team in their quest for national sing-offs. Rebel Wilson has some fun as inappropriate songstress “Fat Amy” and Adam DeVine brings a lovable lunacy as the leader of the girls' all-male acapella rivals. Elizabeth Banks (who also produces) and John Michael Higgins meanwhile steal several scenes as some Christopher Guest-level competition announcers, eager to see “who will win a trophy for singing with their mouths.” Wisely avoiding a number of potential cliches (save yet another routine love interest), Pitch Perfect instead embraces its silly, energetic performances with good humour and aplomb.
