'Pitch Perfect 3' may be an entertaining film, just like it's predecessors, however it lacks the charm that made the first film a success. The simple goal in any comedy film is to make it funny and entertain its audience, which 'Pitch Perfect 3' certainly does. Its well-loved characters are back, with all of their quirks and crass one-liners. Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) is the obvious highlight of the film, which was intended. While she may have only been a minor character in the first film, everybody found her that funny that she had a bigger role in the sequel. I was quite unsure about that idea, as I preferred her as a side character - she was funnier that way. Everything is funnier in small doses. However, in 'Pitch Perfect 3' Wilson's character is taken further than just having a bigger part and she now had her own storyline throughout the film that was essentially ridiculous and far-fetched. It was quite a weak attempt to make this film unique from the rest of the films, but in the end, it was wildly amusing and produced several laughs. Other than that storyline, the remainder of the movie felt just like the other movies - especially with Becca's (Anna Kendrick) storyline which was essentially the same as the previous film. The cast itself, with their comedic deliverance, were able to save this film from being an absolute bore. Kendrick and Wilson were the standouts in the film, as far as cast members go, along with Brittany Snow and Hailee Steinfeld. As for the music, which the Pitch Perfect franchise is so well known for, was ultimately a disappointment. It wasn't as good as the original film, the highly anticipated 'riff-off' was a disaster and the finale had the wrong focus. Alas many of these flaws, 'Pitch Perfect 3' was still able to give out many cheap laughs and is worth watching if you are a fan of the previous films.

Sticking to its roots, this final and 3rd chapter was a pleasant watch with some great vocals, good entertainment and fun comedy. Great new cast members made the film feel that much more entertaining. It's a well deserved 9/10 from me
This film tells the story of a group of female singers, who go on a European tour to entertain the American troops.The story is pure brain off entertainment. There are lots of popular songs in the film, and basically nothing is serious in the film. I find Rebel Wilson's character annoying though, as she constantly delivers lines with sexual innuendo.
