“We are back pitches”

The story picks up some time after the first Pitch Perfect movie. We find the Bellas making a humiliating performance in front of the President of the United States. in order to recover the honor they plan to win the World A Capella Championship…
- Why should you watch it?
If you liked the first one, you’ll definitely like this one. This sequel keeps the spirit of the first one, same humor, same rhythm (something to be grateful for) and new songs!! The plot is quite similar to the first movie but with some news things, but nonetheless it works greatly. Yet, there is nothing new but at the same time it is different from the first instalment.
For the newcomers, just enjoy a good movie about overcoming ones fears and sing a long cause the songs are catchy and the story is not bad at all, you will share some laughs and you will want to go back to college (if you already were there too long ago). Advice: watch the first one if you want to enjoy it better, but you can watch this one as a stand alone.
Now, go (try) sing something!
