The second sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit, Pitch Perfect, after 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2, this movie finds the a cappella group, the Bellas, out of college in jobs they hate. They get together one last time for a farewell tour. Former Bellasleader, Aubrey, gets an USO tour for the group through her Army dad.

Pitch Perfect 3 Director: Trish SieCast: Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld, John Lithgow, Matt Lanter, Guy Burnett, DJ Khaled, Ruby Rose, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, Elizabeth Banks, John Michael HigginsStory line: The a cappella girls have graduated but come together for a farewell tour

    As always there is a competition with the winner getting to open for the world famous musician and producer DJ Khaled. There is competition in the form of girl band, Evermoist, exotic locales in Spain, Italy and south of France and cute boys including Khaled’s producer Theo and soldier boy Chicago. There is lot of singing, dancing, daddy issues, family feeling and an insulting documentary crew trailing the Bellas.

    Most of the cast returns with new entrants being John Lithgow as Fat Amy’s (Rebel Wilson) criminal dad, DJ Khaled as himself, Matt Lanter as Chicago, and Guy Burnett as Theo.

    This is the third and final movie in the series and while not being hideous, is not particularly good either. In its hurry to get to the end, Pitch Perfect 3 is perfunctory and choppy. There are little laughs, and for all who enjoy singing along to George Michael and the Cranberries (Zombie) the movie provides gentle fun.
