Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
I heard about the movie because of the involvement of Elizabeth Banks and Anna Kendrick. Both great actresses and since Elizabeth also did a great deal of off-camera work, I knew I wanted to check it out. The first trailers I saw of it got me hooked, yep this one was to be one to see.
The story itself is maybe not super original and a little predictable, but I don't mind. I wouldn't have expected much different. The characters themselves are just great though. They all have something that makes you love them (or want to strangle them now and then ;)).
The songs is what did it most for me though, I loved the mash-ups they did. My personal favourite are the ones they did for the 'Riff Off'. As I liked the music a lot, I've been listening quite a bit to the soundtrack as well. The soundtrack, however, has a lot of "cleaned up" versions of the songs they sing in the movie, which works great.
Have you guys seen it? Liked it? Is the music your kind of thing?
