This 2nd movie about a group of girls who sing in an all-girl a capella group known as the Bella’s again stars the same characters from the first movie. Anna Kendrick plays Beca, Rebel Wilson plays Fat Amy and Brittany Snow played Chloe. Added to the sequel was Hailee Steinfield as Emily Junk-Harden, a freshman who has dreamed of being a Bella most of her life. Katy Segal plays Katherine Junk who is Emily’s mother and a former Bella herself.
The movie begins with the Bella’s performing at the Kennedy Center for President Barack Obama’s birthday. The presentation, however, goes horribly wrong when Fat Amy comes in on a makeshift trapeze and has a wardrobe malfunction while not wearing any underwear. This incident causes the Bella’s to be banned from any further competition.
After lobbying to reduce their punishment, they reach an agreement that if they can win the world competition, they can be reinstated. Anna is tasked with coming up with a new routine for the Bella’s but she is sidetracked by her desire to pursuit her career as a producer and the Bella’s seem to lose their way.
This movie is outrageously funny and even has guest appearances by Snoop Dog and members of the Green Bay Packers. The Green Bay Packer members participate in a “Sing-Off” which only adds to the hilarity. As before Anna Kendrick shows off her fabulous voice and acting abilities. Rebel Wilson again keeps you laughing the aisles. All of the actors were fabulous.
I gave this movie 4 out of 4 stars. Go see it!
