Pitch Perfect 3 - My Review
We already knew we'd be inclined to love it, based on our enjoyment of the first two movies (we watch them both pretty regularly) and that definitely helped. Already feeling engaged with the Barden Bellas had us ready to love their next film.
Overall, it was pretty good. The most confusing part was that the plot line with Fat Amy's dad really had nothing to do with the USO 'competition.' I feel Fat Amy and her dad could have made a great action/adventure movie, but the way it was done made it feel like a little mini-scene dropped into a Pitch Perfect movie. The competition between the groups wanting to open for DJ Khaled on the USO tour could have been a great movie on its own - expand a little bit on the other groups (and Ruby Rose - YAY!), and stick with a similar plot to the first two movies. Although I suppose I can see why they may have shied away from making the same movie three times, people like my daughter and I would keep watching anyway.
Hilarious aside - I am not usually big on pop culture and such, and didn't realize that DJ Khaled was a real artist until I saw his name come up as a trivia answer at the bar last night. LOL
If you liked the first two Pitch Perfect movies, you pretty much have to see the third one, right? I'll also be downloading the soundtrack, and especially liked the finale number.
