I rented Pitch Perfect from Amazon Saturday night, and not only was I pleasantly surprised, I totally fell in love. This movie is wonderful! The characters, the story, the music, and good lord but Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins are hilarious. “Nothing makes a woman feel more like a girl than a man who sings like a boy.” One of my favorite running gags is Lily, the girl who speaks so softly that I’ve watched the movie three times so far and I still haven’t figured out all of her lines, but here’s a taste of some that I have caught: “I ate my twin in the womb,” “I did a turn in County,” and “Anyone want to see a dead body?” And I love the sexy confidence of the only slightly absurd Fat Amy. “You call yourself Fat Amy?” “Yeah, so twig bitches like you don’t do it behind my back.” Not to mention the marvelous cameo by Christopher Mintz-Plasse in the two audition scenes.
I’m right this second watching it for the fourth time in 48 hours, and I’m still catching new things (Quidditch Club!). I’ve downloaded the soundtrack and several of the original source songs from iTunes. I totally need to get this dvd.
I am so in love with this movie! Go! See it! Love it!
