Pitch Perfect started off as a spunky girl power film that took people by surprise. Sadly, by its third go around it’s lost a large chuck of its forward momentum simply because it’s not the type of story that really warranted 3 feature length films. The cast remains the strongest component of the franchise and their chemistry is still just as strong as it was before. Their interactions are the high points of the film even though the story feels hacked together. The plot this go around seems to have two primary purposes, to get to the next song and dance routine and move along a paper thing story about the USO, DJ Khaled and Fat Amy’s father. It’s weak and really feels more like an after thought. It’s a shame because they probably could have gotten more run out of these characters if they’d put just a tad bit more effort. Sadly, it’s more of a final victory lap before these characters are put to pasture for good.
