Rated PG-13, 112 min.
Loosely adapted from Mickey Rapkin's book of the same name, Pitch Perfect
sounds like Bring It On
with high notes. But it also wants to be this year's Bridesmaids
. Just like that movie, it has bodily fluid-drenched, gross-out humor and a rivalry between the scrappy heroine and her control freak antagonist. Even Bridesmaids
cast member Rebel Wilson, who serves as this movie's Melissa McCarthy, wins over audiences with her uproarious candidness and refreshing confidence.
