Pitch Perfect [on DVD]

Pitch Perfect
[DVD Pitch]

Beca can't wait to move to L.A. and be a DJ, but first she's got to get through college. Her father makes her a deal, she must join one club and then he'll let her quit college after her freshman year and help her move to L.A. The question is, what club will she join? After an embarrassing performance at the acapella finals last year the Barden Bellas are down to just 2 members, Aubrey and Chloe. Now they must hold auditions to fill their squad. Originally aiming to recruit their usual type of member - thin, good-looking female with perfect pitch -- they find no one by that description is interested and get stuck with a group of misfits who they must train to become the Bellas they once were. After Chloe convinces Beca to try out, Beca and Aubrey clash over the type of music they should sing. Will the Bellas make it back to the finals to make up for last year's embarrassment or will they get beaten again by Barden's other acapella team -- an all-male team called the Treblemakers. Rebel Wilson shines as Fat Amy and the soundtrack is amazing!
