The story goes like this: The Bella's are back, and they are better than ever. After being humiliated infront of none other than the President of the United States of America, the Bella's are taken out of the Aca-Circuit. In order to clear their name, and regain their status, the Bella's take on a seemingly impossible task: winning an International competition no American team has ever won. In order to accomplish this monumental task, they need to strengthen the bonds of friendship and sisterhood, and blow away the competition with their amazing aca-magic! With all new friends and old rivals tagging along for the trip, the Bella's can hopefully accomplish their dreams.

Pitch Perfect 2 is of comedy and musical genre, which runs for approximately 115 minutes. It's rated PG-13 for sexual innuendo and language. I really enjoyed watching this film. Its entertainment value cannot be denied. There was never a dull scene. The combination of pop culture, reality TV and raw talent was perfect. Some of the jokes were probably cheesy and inappropriate but nevertheless funny! I would have easily given this film 5 stars but because of excessive stereotyping and some racist dialogues, I couldn't. Portraying an Asian woman like a weirdo and a Latina as an illegal alien are never a good idea. Dressing a lesbian woman like a guy is stereotyping. Can't she be gay without being that obvious? I'm probably nitpicking but I just find those details inappropriate. But overall, it's a good movie, which I recommend to anyone above 13 years old.

RATING: 4 out of 5 STARS
