I didn't think this was anything special though it picked up considerably in the second half and after I had put the very rude and obnoxious woman next to me in her place who was talking very loudly throughout. She went a bit ballistic and started having a go at me, even told OH to have a word with me (LOL, what?) but the fun part is that after her outburst that contained the f word, she sat in sullen silence for the rest of the movie. What a sad, pathetic person.

Recognised a few TV actors but the best part in the film was without a doubt Rebel Wilson's. I can't usually stand her but this was a great role for her.

This was very enjoyable, although I wonder why they insisted about calling it "a cappella" when the instrumental track was so heavy!
8/10
Agreed it felt much shorter and was much much better!! Some real laugh out loud moments, and the actress from Bridesmaids was amazing, completely made the film. Would definitely recommend the film to friends. Also was pleasantly surprised about what a mix of girls and guys were in the cinema, rare to see a rom comedy which stretches to both genders.

Saw this tonight at a very busy Watford, luckily a friend saved us seats, just made it in time, some poor bloke misjudged the width restrictions & got his van firmly wedged so traffic was awful, with both directions using one side.

As for the film, it didn't blow me away, but was very enjoyable & quite funny in places, Fat Amy had the best one liners, sadly most of them were included in the trailer, the quiet girl was very funny too in a freaky kind of way.
Preferred Cinema's now Paignton or Exeter!

It was predictable and cheesy, but what can I say, I loved it. It was funny (Rebel Wilson especially stole my laughs) and the music had me humming all the way home. It was just a feel-good movie, perfect pick-me-up for the mid-week dark and cold december afternoon.

Saw this last night at Wester Hailes. Loved it. Loved Rebel Wilson and all the singing. Lots of interesting characters, all in all a great night out, definitely heaps better than tonight's effort.

Saw this tonight at Vue Islington. Nice to see PXC again and also Beate.

I really enjoyed this light movie. Comparisons to Glee are to be expected. The soundtrack was great and with some gross out moments but not quite Bridesmaid like. Nothing really more to add. Apart from a guilty pleasure film. Though during our screening there was a lot of raucous female laughter.

Really wanted to like this. Looked good on paper but the characters were lazily written and stereotyped - there was no chemistry between the two leads and Fat Amy and Bumper really reminded me of Jack Black on an off day. The singing was good though.

Saw this last night at the Vue in Islington. Film was okay, a few laughs here and there (I didn't appear to be in hysterics like the majority of the audience), and like everyone else I felt that Rebel Wilson stole the film.It was predictable and cheesy, but then I don't think it was trying to be anything other than that. Thought the idea of the rivalry between the two main groups was a bit weak, it just seemed that Bumper was a bit of a moron rather than there being some deep-seated hatred of each other. 7/10

Derviative but fun . Rebel Wilson stole the show from the rather stiff stars

Lovely to see tsoiboy again, and also Beate and her OH. Didn't hear your commotion with the rude lady but, what is it with people rustling in the cinema behind me?? It was so annoying.

Good clean fun, except the puke. That was disgusting! But I really enjoyed this. So much better than Glee, as not soppy, cheesy or sentimental. Lots of wit, humour and charm. Agree, Rebel had the best lines. 8/10
