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.
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!
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.
