MPAA Rating: PG-13       Length: 112 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 13+. Your typical teen movie stuff: cursing, some sexually themed language, a recurring gag involving uncontrollable projectile vomit that is pretty gross; some kissing; and discussion of drinking and drug use.

'Pitch Perfect' isn't, well, perfect, but it's a pleasantly surprising spin on the a cappella trend jumpstarted by TV's 'Glee.' With a nostalgic nod to '80s teen flicks and some enjoyable performances, 'Pitch Perfect' is an amusing, blackly comic diversion.

By Roxana Hadadi

The thing about the a cappella singing comedy "Pitch Perfect" is that it could use more actual singing. But it's so winningly, humorously self-aware that it's hard to fault the movie for not packing in more performances—especially because the ones we're given are so enjoyable.
