Musical Comedy: An all-female a cappella singing group tries to rekindle their college glory days by competing in a USO tour challenge involving other, more talented bands.
The various members of the Bellas a cappella singing group have all graduated college and are now in the "real world." Beca (ANNA KENDRICKS) is a music producer who is trying to manage a young, white hip-hop artist who she despises. Chloe (BRITTANY SNOW) is in training to be a veterinarian, but would rather be singing out loud. Fat Amy (REBEL WILSON) is a street performer, but otherwise unemployed and living off Beca. And Aubrey (ANNA CAMP) laments over her absentee military father and comes up with the idea for the Bellas to perform on a USO tour so she can connect with him.

The only Bella still in school is singer/songwriter Emily (HAILEE STEINFELD), and she tags along on the European tour for fun. Their first stop is Spain, and we come to learn that Aubrey isn't the only one with "daddy issues." Amy's criminal father, Fergus (JOHN LITHGOW), shows up and tries to make amends for all of the years he was a derelict dad. But it's clear that he hasn't left his shady past behind him. We soon come to learn that Amy has a bank account in the Cayman Islands she knew nothing about that contains $180 million ... and her dad wants access to it and is willing to kidnap and even harm Amy's friends to get it.

Meanwhile, the commentators from the first two films, Gail (ELIZABETH BANKS) and John (JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS), tag along throughout the movie filming a snarky documentary on the Bellas. Chloe falls for a hunky officer named Chicago (MATT LANTER). And Beca attracts the eye of one of DJ Khaled's producers, Theo (GUY BURNET), who makes her a life-changing offer she can't turn down ... but she might because it will mean separation from the Bellas.

Older teens who have grown up with the franchise will have the most interest.
For crude and sexual content, language, and some action.

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!!!
