From the moment my sister walked into my room telling me about the movie trailer she saw and its plot line, I was hooked on seeing the movie “Pitch Perfect.” And this movie lived up to my expectations.

“Pitch Perfect,” directed by Jason Moore, the director of the TV series “Brothers and Sisters,” and starring one of the actresses from “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” Anna Kendrick, this movie was like “Mean Girls” and “Glee” mixed together.

Beca, played by Kendrick, is a freshman at Barden University, who joins Barden’s all-girl a capella group, the Bellas. After an embarrassing loss last year, the Bellas need new members to beat their rival all-male a capella group, The Treblemakers, and to win the All-Collegiate competition at the Lincoln Center in New York City.

Even though I am not into “Glee” or musicals, by the end I found myself singing along and tapping my feet to the beat of the music.

The Bellas leader, Aubrey, likes to put “aca” in front of some words, such as “aca-mazing” or “aca-ackward,” and I still laugh about that today.

Rebel Wilson, who played Brynn in “Bridesmaids,” plays Fat Amy in this movie and brings humor to the screen every couple of minutes with her one-liners. I found myself doubled over with laughter, and the movie kept getting funnier as it went on.

This is a great movie. I highly recommend seeing it before it goes out of theaters. With a tagline of “Get Pitch Slapped,” you know it’ll be worth your time.
