Musical Comedy: Members of an all-female singing club try to put aside their differences to win a national college competition.
Beca (ANNA KENDRICK) is the new girl on the campus of Barden University, but she doesn't want to be there. She'd much rather be in Los Angeles, working the music scene and living out her dream of being a club remix DJ. But her recently remarried father (JOHN BENJAMIN HICKEY), a professor at the college, has convinced her to give the campus a one-year try.

Beca is almost immediately recruited into the Bellas, an all-girls a cappella singing group led by uptight Aubrey (ANNA CAMP) and free-spirited Chloe (BRITTANY SNOW). Together, they recruit a group of misfit singers to take on their male rivals, the Treblemakers, led by Bumper (ADAM DeVINE) and new recruit Jesse (SKYLAR ASTIN) who has a crush on Beca. The new Bellas range from an outspoken Brit who calls herself "Fat Amy" (REBEL WILSON) to the promiscuous Stacie (ALEXIS KNAPP) to lesbian Cynthia Rose (ESTER DEAN).

Conflict comes when Beca tries to challenge Aubrey's authority in the group. She'd like to use her remix skills to jazz up the Bellas' tired routines. But Aubrey is a stickler for tradition and an unapologetic control freak. Meanwhile, the Treblemakers have troubles of their own when Bumper quits on them and Jesse has to convince his "Star Wars" fan boy roommate Benji (BEN PLATT), who has a terrific voice but was rejected earlier by the group, to take his place at a national competition in New York City covered by TV commentators Gail (ELIZABETH BANKS) and John (JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS).

Yes. High school and college-age students raised on shows like "American Idol," its various knock-offs, and "Glee" will likely want to see this.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
