Pitch Perfect should not have an 80% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s tacky to the max -- dripping with cheesy dialogue, unoriginal situations and relationships -- yet there’s also something so undeniably charming about it. The music is infectious, the performances are over the top in an oddly lovable way, and then there are the jokes, most of which are so outrageous and out of left field, they’ll leave you with uncontrollable giggles.
Anna Kendrick does loner angst with ease, Anna Camp is pristine as the queen bee, and Rebel Wilson is, well, pitch perfect Rebel Wilson, but the big takeaway from this one is Hana Mae Lee. When you only get a handful of lines and they include stuff like, “I ate my twin in the womb,” and, “I set fires to feel joy,” you know she can rock just about anything.
