PITCH PERFECT 3 REVIEWED
“Pitch Perfect 3” doesn’t have much of a point. Yeah, the Bellas are out of college and a new generation has taken their place. So, what do you do with these ladies now? Everyone has a life they didn’t expect, but they’re not terrible. Beca still self-sabotages, but gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to open for DJ Khaled. While the trailers tried to make a big deal out of the Bellas’ competition using original music, it’s deployed in maybe two scenes. It’s the same movie as the last two but with more international locales and less cameos.
While the film plays short, it still feels amazingly inconsequential. There was a push to give Rebel Wilson more to do, but all her subplot gets is a chance for John Lithgow to overshadow her performance. Still, the fans seem to love what’s going on. Honestly, I can’t hate a trilogy that ends on a meh moment. The movie hits all of the notes of the past without making you question what’s going on. It only makes sense for Beca to go solo and the other Bellas to get their moments.
It’s weird to be annoyed at a movie for paying fan service. I just wanted to have something far more entertaining than Hana Mae Lee finally talking.
