In Summary
  • Part 1 was acceptable, because it was novel, and it gave us the national treasure that is Fat Amy, and her Fat Amy-sized confidence.
  • It also gave us Ester Dean, whose magic we've all witnessed (look her up, I'm sure she's behind many songs you had no idea were her).
  • And yes, sure, again, Anna Kendrick, but really, Fat Amy stole the limelight.

I'm one of those people who likes to watch movies so that if I don't like them or I'm critiquing them, I at least know what I'm talking about – i.e. I have a knowledge base upon which to delicately place my hateration on. It's a useful thing to have in this dance soiree.

That being said, one of my most regrettable movies of the year is officially Pitch Perfect 3. Just like its predecessor before it, it managed to be a little more of a disappointment than Part 2.

Part 1 was acceptable, because it was novel, and it gave us the national treasure that is Fat Amy, and her Fat Amy-sized confidence. It also gave us Ester Dean, whose magic we've all witnessed (look her up, I'm sure she's behind many songs you had no idea were her).

And yes, sure, again, Anna Kendrick, but really, Fat Amy stole the limelight.

The premise was fantastic – awkward college girls who are more or less supposed outcasts find each other in a type of college glee group that is kind of a sorority and comes with none of the perks – you gain a family, but everyone thinks you and the Greeks – sorry, geeks – you belong to, are major dorks.

It all works out in the end, you see your worth, win a few competitions, get with the guy version to your girl tunes, and you rock each other's worlds. A capella heaven.

Then, because the premise was so good, they made a sequel. Which is always the way Hollywood goes, isn't it? Unfortunately for the rest of the world, we had to be subjected to another movie, and another competition.

And if we're being perfectly straightforward, yes, we all watched the movie, but no, the Bellas definitely did not deserve to win against those Eurovision wonders.
