Hey, Watch This!: Pitch Perfect

Pitch Perfect came out on DVD in early January. I’ve seen it seven times since then. I believe this qualifies me as an expert of sorts so I’m here to tell you why you should check it out.

PLOT

Aspiring DJ Beca gets involved with The Barden Bellas, an all-girl a capella group. She helps them on their quest to beat the all-male Treblemakers and win Nationals.

WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH

Synchronized lady dancing to “The Sign” by Ace of Base? Count me in. Especially when flight attendant-esque uniforms are included.

Anything Rebel Wilson does. Which includes mermaid dancing.

Awkward singing audition in the shower. Chloe asks Beca to sing her “lady jam”. I almost pee my pants laughing.

Jesse is adorable and I want to have many aca-children with him.

Adam DeVine and Rebel Wilson are especially hilarious when put together. Virtually everything that comes out of their mouths is comedic gold.

There is a riff-off in an empty pool. “No Diggity” is sung. That should be all you need to know.

This scene of Beca and Jesse watching The Breakfast Club. First, The Breakfast Club is amazing. Second, Jesse mouthing the words as he watches is beyond adorable. Third, I NEED KISSING.

Jesse does this while singing. And I love it.
