This movie is hilarious! Or should I say Rebel Wilson is hilarious? She truly made the movie. If you've seen the trailer or the movie, Rebel Wilson is "Fat Amy". But besides being funny, the music itself is actually really good. Normally I would be against a female a cappella group for the exact reason the give in the movie, female a cappella groups don't have the deep bases to round out their sound. But I really enjoyed all of the mashups. They do a really good job in the arrangements of songs and create greatly layered songs.
For those of you who haven't seen the preview, the preview is really what sparked my interest.
But back to the movie. Yes the story line is a little cheesy and predictable at times. But I really liked the movie mostly based on the music and funny lines. The humor kind of reminded me of a less crude Bridesmaids mixed with She's the Man. Both of which I really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this movie. I wouldn't say that it was a necessary movie to see in theaters, but I think that it's a good movie to see sometime.
