This is a "go out with gals," movie. It was a little on the cheesy side in the first 20 minutes, but I warmed up to the different Beca and enjoyed the love affair with Bumper and Fat Amy.
The Bellas are disqualified from an embarrassing moment with the President and need to win the world championship to be able to return to their former glory. Rebel Wilson carries the film as Fat Amy. The other character who is weirdly funny is the whisper girl played by Hanna Mae Lee.
It made me laugh, but I missed the exchange between Kendrick and Astin. The humor between the two in the first one, was the main appeal for me. A surprising twist of humor came from Beca's boss, Keegan-Michael Key and his nephew, Dax.
Overall I enjoyed it and will most likely watch it again. 3/4
