My sister from another mister Tara and I were lucky enough to be invited to a pre-screening of Pitch Perfect about a month ago, and we just about died. We’d been talking about this movie since the trailer came out ages ago, as it had all the classic elements of Things Anna & Tara Like:
- College/YA-age characters
- Cute boys
And Pitch Perfect really delivered. I’m a huge Anna Kendrick fan – she’s got amazing timing and is just pure hilarity. And now I’m a huge Skylar Astin fan too. *Swoon.* He’s my new boyfriend. Remember: I saw him first.
YOU’LL SEE. Watch the trailer:
The movie, from Universal Pictures, is in select theaters today, and opening everywhere Oct. 5.
Rebel Wilson was absolutely a standout — you know her as Kristin Wiig’s nasty/hilarious roommate from Bridesmaids, but I also loved Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games), Adam DeVine (Workaholics), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin’ from Superbad) and a hundred other actors who just had KILLER lines. People will be quoting this movie non-stop. We could not stop laughing!
And the music! Let’s not forget the music! I love acapella music (hello, The Sing Off!), and all the numbers in Pitch Perfect were totally download-able. The next evening, we were still thinking about one particular scene and about how we wanted to go to a sing-off on the streets.
Check out the clip we were talking about:
1. Don’t Stop The Music (The Treblemakers)
2. Let It Whip (The Treblemakers)
3. Since U Been Gone (Ester Dean, Skylar Astin)
4. Cups (Anna Kendrick)
5. Riff Off: Mickey/Like A Virgin/Hit Me With Your Best Shot/S&M/Let’s Talk About Sex/I’ll Make Love To You/Feels Like The First Time/No Diggity (The Barden Bellas, The Treblemakers, The BU Harmonics)
6. Bellas Regionals: The Sign/Eternal Flame/Turn The Beat Around (The Barden Bellas)
7. Right Round (The Treblemakers featuring My Name Is Kay)
8. Pool Mashup: Just The Way You Are/Just A Dream (The Barden Bellas)
9. Party In The U.S.A. (The Barden Bellas)
10. Trebles Finals: Bright Lights Bigger City/Magic (The Treblemakers)
11. Bellas Finals: Price Tag/Don t You (Forget About Me)/Give Me Everything/Just The Way You Are/Party In The U.S.A./Turn The Beat Around (The Barden Bellas)
12. Toner (Instrumental Suite) (Christopher Beck, Mark Kilian)
Anyhow, I’m just saying, if your interests are similar to mine — and they probably are if you read this blog — you must see this movie! When we were walking out of the theater, we just kept saying how we already wanted to watch it again. It’s that good!
