Ugh, why is there a third one? Honestly, I liked the first Pitch Perfect. I knew how it was going to end before the opening credits ended, but I still enjoyed the hell out of the damn thing. It was like lightning in a bottle in its ability to balance predictability with the charm of Anna Kendrick and her fellow Bellas. Then you had the music, which was just fun.
I want to kick my own ass now.
Of course, it was successful and Hollywood is like me when there are cookies in the house: I will devour every bit of it, even as I start to hate it and myself. And so we got Pitch Perfect 2, which I have never seen and never plan to see. Now we have Pitch Perfect 3 and I have the same plan for it.
Honestly, this series is like the strange, a cappella sister of The Hangover in that all of the flicks in the series are the same damned movie. They just keep getting sadder and more awkward to even see.
Anyway, here’s the newest trailer. The Bellas are all graduated but they want to sing together again, which is completely impossible to do if you don’t compete to tour with the USO in order to do it. OBVIOUSLY.
