The US Champion A Capella group the Barden Bella’s are back from their championship win in the original in this song filled comedy sequel. Excited to perform in Washington D.C. for the President, an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction happens that cause the Bella’s to be stripped of their title and disbanded. But they make a deal that they are still allowed to attend the world championship contest in Copenhagen, and if they win, they will be reinstated. Despite all the challenges that face them, they set out to beat the German team and bring home the victory.

This is a worthy follow-up to the original movie. The humor is spot on and the music is really good. These girls can harmonize. There are a lot of cameos in this movie that will be surprising and unexpected. The script is predictable, and the plot is just like the first one. But there are so many good performances, and the humor comes out of nowhere. Many of jokes I wasn’t able to hear because the audience was laughing so hard from the previous joke. Granted this is a serious girl power movie, but that’s ok. There is plenty of fun moments for everyone. I was really surprised. I waited a long time to see the original film because I expected it to be just awful, but when I saw it I was surprised. This one is certainly just as good, just as funny, and equal or better than the first one. Elizabeth Banks had a part in this film that was really funny, but she also directed it. Like the hecklers from The Muppet Show or the announcers from many great comedy sports films, these two are hysterical, basically due to the lack of any sort of filter on this pair. They say what they are thinking no matter how wrong! There is another subplot in this film about an artist and a music producer that is absolutely hysterical. I was surprised when I got to theater on a Tuesday evening and found nearly every seat filled. The crowd was tremendous and it looks like a lot of folks are going to agree with me that the humor was spot on. Not extremely vulgar, it keeps the PG-13 rating, but the jokes are to the point and pretty raunchy from time to time. This was a good sequel and if you’re a comedy fan, this is one you don’t want to miss.
