Read on to learn if the sequel recaptures the magic of the original.
Review by Sue LukenbaughThe Pitches are back, and while the Bellas prove they've still got swagger, they lack the spark that made us really love them in the first place. The Barden Bellas have been ruling the world of collegiate a cappella since we last saw them, but with that success and the lack of Aubrey's stringent leadership the girls have gotten sloppy. They've lost their identity and can't get through a performance without some sort of catastrophe. Just as in the first one, the Bellas have to come together to after a very embarrassing display. Instead of projectile vomit, its muffgate at the Kennedy Center in front of the POTUS and FLOTUS. The girls not only get their victory tour taken from them after the snafu, but in order for the Bellas to redeem themselves and not be disbanded forever after their current season they have to win the World Championship in Copenhagen. The Chief competition comes in the form of: Das Sound Machine. They're a super slick group of juggernauts that make the Treblemakers look like tiny talentless human children. Seriously maybe its just their height, but they look much older than the Bellas, even super senior (she failed Russian Lit three times to stay a Bella) Chloe but they put on slick techno show with some powerhouse vocals.
