Pitch Perfect 3
Director:
Trish Sie, Michael Gracey
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp and others
Rating: * * 1/2

Pitch Perfect is the third and last film in the franchise, which might be a good thing, because the a cappella singing group, the Bellas, just cannot pull off their antics any more; take away Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson and the film would collapse anyway.

The Bellas have by now graduated from college, where the first film was set, and in their thirties they have to cope with the problems of the real world. John (John Michael Higgins) and Gail (Elizabeth Banks) are following Beca (Anna Kendrick) around filming a documentary on the Bellas. Beca works- unhappily- at a music company and shares a room with Fat Amy (Wilson). They are at a loose end professionally and personally when Chloe (Brittany Snow) tells them about a Bella's reunion performance.

They all meet up – Aubrey (Anna Camp), Cynthia-Rose (Ester Dean), Stacie (Alexis Knapp), Lilly (Hana Mae Lee), Flo (Chrissie Fit), Jessica (Kelley Jakle), and Ashley (Shelley Regner)—only to find that they have been invited by Emily (Hailee Steinfeld) to watch her and her group perform, not to sing.

The Bellas are disappointed and dying to perform together again, when Aubrey offers to get them on to a USO performance tour, and if they are good they can get to open for DJ Khaled (playing himself). Their main competition is the female rock band called Evermoist (yes, that’s the level of the humour), led by Calamity (Ruby Rose).

There is music, a lot of shrieking, some passable gags, romances and other disasters, involving so many characters that one stops keeping track after a point. John Lithgow turns up as Fat Amy’s gangster father who wants to reunite with her with an ulterior motive.

The song and dance numbers are energetic and the Bellas manage to drum up the warmth required to portray their close sisterhood, but keeping the audience interested in the blah proceedings is tougher this time, and the strain shows.
