In this new movie of Pitch Perfect 3, the Bellas are found to be split apart, and each girl is living a different life. Although it seemed like they all were in the same direction back when they were still the lively singing group that everyone knew, they each went their own way in life. Some were already settled down, while others struggled with finding their careers.

The Bella’s find themselves with a chance to reunite at a performance reunion. With the Bella’s ready to sing, they come to find out they were only invited to watch the newer performers. Disappointed, they find their own ways to make the most of their trip. The Riff Off comes back into action, just like in the last two previous movies. A competition rose with the Bella’s and a newer upcoming singing group, who acted as if they were far better than the Bella’s. The group they faced used both their voices and instruments. After the Riff Off, the Bella’s came to a realization that creating music a capella, which is what they are mainly known for, is not as popular anymore as it once was. Instead, singing with actual music is what the industry is now looking at.
To try to gain attention from DJ Khaled, the singing group all decide to go oversea and sing to the army troops. That’s when the Bella’s take a trip to the oversea USO tour together. They make many questionable decisions along the way of their musical, yet dramatic journey.

The humor in this movie was good, along with the visual aspects. I liked how Pitch Perfect 3 added in some action to their film, and the story line flowed nicely. It had a little bit of a mystery to it as Fat Amy met her dad for the first time in a long time, and that is when the plot seemed to unfold.

While reading reviews for Pitch Perfect 3, I came across one that I strongly agreed with. A user by the name of spongeswift, explains “Pitch Perfect 3 is for the fans! This movie is really not for people that are not warmed up to the series. The plot was kind of all over the place but the comedy wasn’t overdone, and neither was the action. It was a good mix of the 2. This movie focuses more on the friendship of the girls which to some people may seem confusing and daunting which is why it’s for the real fans. The end was fun, not as heartfelt as the end of Pitch Perfect 2 but still a good series if not trilogy ending. It really brought the series full circle, and yes I would love to see another movie come out of this franchise I would just really love it to not be about the Bella’s kids. This isn’t your popcorn comedy it has a big background story where you HAVE to watch the past movies. Overall it’s gonna be a treat for the fans but for regular moviegoers it could be a little daunting.”

The cast in this movie seemed like they were overall having fun, which can be very fun to watch! Although the movie had many chases and action happening on scene, the cast kept the movie upbeat. At an interview with Anna Kendrick who plays Beca in Pitch Perfect, she became very emotional about the end of the movie series. She states, “I understand that this is probably the last one, and it’s a very nice satisfying ending, I hope. But there’s definitely part of all of us that’s like, ‘We will do more,’ in tiny whisper voices. We went to dinner after the last night of filming, and I was all drunk and emotional. We got especially close on the third one. I just feel so proud. It’s such a diverse group. I think I didn’t fully appreciate until the third one how rare it is to work with ten women from such different backgrounds. We’re close in age, but we have such different points of view and such different senses of humor. I feel very lucky.”

I think it’s safe to say that these cast members will probably continue on with their acting or musical careers as they maintain in the industry.

There is a lot of music involved in Pitch Perfect 3, but more suspense and action unlike the previous movies. To me, it seems as if this movie is directed towards long-term fans of Pitch Perfect considering the Bellas are older and not as popular as they once were back then. The Bellas are faced with many challenges and crazy things end up happening! Just from watching the beginning of this movie, I could tell this was going to be an exciting movie.
