PITCH PERFECT 2 (B+)

The Bottom Line: Gleefully good-hearted and engagingly goofy, this follow-up to the 2012 hit is the first comedy of the year that fully delivers on the promise of laughter!  Elizabeth Banks (directing her first feature length film) does a tremendous job of herding her aca-cats (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailey Steinfeld, et al), while showcasing a wonderfully collaborative, teamwork-focused atmosphere and giving her main players their chance to shine.  Admittedly, the original is a better told tale – a solid, well-structured movie.  In lieu of the script bolt-tightening here, we’re offered a slightly looser, more joyfully zany romp.  Like its predecessor though, the campiness of this A capella battle royal world is embraced.  If you’re looking for a riotous, toe-tapping, aca-tastic good time, this spirited flick will definitely scratch that pitch!
