YES! We made it through the Winter Movie Season, where Hollywood unloads their junk on us, and now we’re headed into the Spring!
Spring is a time for mini-blockbusters, and movies that Hollywood hopes will have decent runs. Last year, “The Hunger Games” was released in March, for example, and we all saw how well that did!

The central plot of “Pitch Perfect” has been done so often now that I’m going to start calling it “The ‘Sister Act’ Plot”. Random band/choir/and in this case, competitive a capella group, has become stale and set in their ways, and then a new member with fresh ideas insists on shaking things up and a power struggle ensues on the way to the championship/big event at the finale. I’ve seen that plot 600 times, in fact, this is the second time
this year (the first being “Joyful Noise”).
In addition to the been there done that structure, “Pitch Perfect” is also filled with really broad comedic characters, and then peppered with a cappella group competitive routines… which, you can imagine, aren’t my cup of tea.
Still, the charms of the cast, and the humor that
does land overcomes the weaknesses enough to tip the balance slightly in “Pitch Perfect”‘s favor.

Making its Home Box Office debut this weekend was last year’s smash comedy, “Bridesmaids”.
Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Melissa McCarthy, “Bridesmaids” was a runaway box office success, grossing $288 million worldwide. It is currently the top grossing film produced by Judd Apatow, and that’s some impressive company. The movie was also critically well received. It got nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress – Melissa McCarthy), and made a number of year end top ten lists, including the American Film Institute’s, Entertainment Weekly’s, and The (title pending) Movie Podcast’s (Tanski’s #2).
The question then becomes – is it all of that?
