Movie Review: Pitch Perfect 2

Before I talk about Pitch Perfect 2, I do have to get a little nerdy for a second. I've blogged about Allison a million times, since she is who I go with to see almost all my movies. We've been friends since she moved to our hood before 2nd grade. We were besties for a few years before we ended up in separate home rooms, but we've been friends for a LONG time. Almost 27 years. YEARS. Well, my mom was the P.E. teacher at our elementary school, and we spent many an afternoon playing in the gym. I went back to the gym last week to borrow some equipment from the current P.E. teacher for Trent's field day later this week. Written on the back of the equipment room door in chalk is the following:

Allena S. + Allison G. = Best Friends

My sister wrote that in probably 1988 and while it's hard to read, it's still there! I love that our friendship has withstood the test of time and I foresee us going to see movies for many years to come.

Anyway...Pitch Perfect 2. Allison and I saw Pitch Perfect right before Drew was born, and I can't believe how much we didn't like the movie! Looking back at my old review, yes, it was terribly lame with awful jokes...but...BUT...it's funny. And the jokes grow on you, and it wasn't aca-horrible like we thought then. We were both so excited to see the sequel which shows you how off our review was back then.

Plot: After a humiliating command performance at Lincoln Center, the Barden Bellas enter an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to regain their status and right to perform.

Review: Aca-adorable! Again, I don't know what crack Allison and I were smoking back in 2012 because this was exactly the same level of stupid, funny, and endearing with great sing-offs mixed in. If you liked the first one {or hated it 2 1/2 years ago but now love it in hindsight}, you'll enjoy PP2!

Awww. Friends Forever! I think we knew what to expect this time around. And I like the singing. And cameos. - AP

How fun that the chalk writing was still there! Me and Terri have been friends since 4th grade and it's awesome to know a friendship can last that long :)

Hahahaha! That's hilarious that you didn't like the original when you first saw it. It's so funny!!

My sister and I saw the first one together, so we definitely had to go see the second one. I liked it, but not as much as the first. But some of the jokes were GOLD.

And that's so cool about you and your friend. I have one friend I've been tight with since 8th grade. I love that!
