The common view that the sequel is never as good as the original rings true with the release of Pitch Perfect 2. Once again the Barden Bellas are back and competing to win an international a cappella competition, which no American team has ever won. While the movie makes an honest attempt to appeal to the young female audience that rendered its predecessor a success, many of the jokes inevitably fall flat.
Frankly, though, I liked Pitch Perfect better when it was an underdog movie the studio released on a wing and a prayer. In any case, there is no need for a Pitch Perfect 3.
