The Bellas are back with more drama than ever. Along with the obvious cover acapella songs that we expect from the Pitch Perfect franchise; we meet Fat Amy’s criminal father who found a way to give the movie more of an edge with explosives and kidnapping.

First let’s talk music.

Do I think the music was better than the previous two? Not quite.

The songs were catchy as always, but the storyline took the forefront of the film and the music was more on the back burner in my opinion. DJ Khaled was a part of the cast, but it was a bummer we didn’t hear a major key from him during the hour and a half film. Ruby Rose was also in the movie as the lead singer of an all-female rock group called Evermoist and as you can imagine was phenomenal.

Now to the storyline.

MOLLY FREEMAN, SCREENRANT”

— “PITCH PERFECT 3 OFFERS A SATISFYING CONCLUSION TO THE A CAPELLA SERIES, BUT SACRIFICES HEART AND SUBSTANCE FOR BIZARRE, OVER-THE-TOP STORY CHOICES.”

All the Bellas, besides Emily, have long since graduated from Barden University and are trying to find where they belong in the world. From Chloe trying to get into vet school, Beca becoming a music producer, and Stacie even having a child (the father yet to be determined), they all seem to be hesitant on their unclear paths. They then embark on their last musical journey together when they are one of four groups performing on the USO tour for US military troops overseas for the fun of it. When they arrive little do they know there is a competition within the performances and the winning group will open for DJ Khaled. In the midst of all of this Fat Amy is reunited with her father, whom she ran away from at the age of 18 due to his criminal activity, and as you can probably infer, things did not go too smoothly between the two.

There were plenty of funny one-liners by both Beca (Anna Kendrick) and Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) that held this movie together.

This film is one that you definitely have to have watched the previous two to have a good understanding of the characters. As an avid Pitch Perfect watcher myself I would say it was a content and true conclusion to a great series that ended without viewers wanting much more.

Although it was not the best of the three movies, it is definitely worth the watch.
