Friday Night Date Night: Pitch Perfect

Friday Night Date Night is a feature on my blog that showcases movie reviews (mostly movies that were adapted from books). Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of relaxing at home.
Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory

I hadn't heard much about Pitch Perfect (and I never realized it was a book), but when it came up on my amazon homepage for "Featured Recommendations" I decided to give it a try.  I am so happy I did.  I am completely and utterly in love with this movie.  It's cute, funny and a bit touching.  The best thing is that the characters are not trying to be cool or getting people to believe that their group is cool...they are geeks and are proud of it.  They are comfortable with who they are and what they like.  I loved that about this film! 

Essentially Pitch Perfect is about a girl who arrives at college and doesn't really fit in.  She ends up auditioning for an a cappella group to appease her father and found herself in a group of misfits who somehow belong together as they fight their way to the top. 

While there are some known characters in this movie, a lot of them are fresh to the screen.  I think this added to the movie because I had no expectations of them.  Rebel Wilson was hilarious as was the rest of the cast and the singing was superb.  (I had no idea that Anna Kendrick could sing...she was even nominated for a Tony award when she was younger).  I was also pleased by Skylar Astin (who played the leading male) and I hope to see him in more movies in the near future.  He was cute and a bit different then your typical leading male.  It was quite refreshing. 

If you haven't seen this movie yet, I highly suggest it!  I personally loved it and I hope you do too.


  1. I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THIS WAS A BOOK! Gahhh I am the worst book blogger in the world. I really enjoyed this movie, and Anna Kendrick is hilarious! I so need to read this book right now!!

  2. I want to watch this movie, it sounds so funny. I believe it comes out in the theatre next week or so here in Holland. I don't think I'm going to watch it on the big screen, because Sunday I'm going to see Les Mis! Woohoo! I'm so excited. But, I am going to buy the DVD. I think I will love this movie.

  3. I've heard such good things about this one. I didn't know it was a book either. I'll have to check them both out.

  4. Awwwwweeee I liked this movie a ton. Fat Amy is an inspiration to us all. ^.^


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
