Perfect Pitch 2 continues the saga of the amazing group that came out of the original movie. In this movie, the group has just come off a bad performance at Lincoln Center. Instead of going home to lick their wounds, Barden Bellas enters into an international competition which no American group has ever won. They have their work cut out for them, in a performance that is sure to please. This is an excellent film for song and dance fans, but it might not exactly be the best example for young, impressionable minds. This parental guide to the movies has the story.

First the plot: a music group practices for the biggest competition ever in order to attempt to win back their place as a performer for the President. Their rival competition from Europe is intimidating and the group has their work cut out for them. There is copious dancing, singing, and trash talking. That is the basic plot.

Now for the not so family friendly part. The girls are young, sexy, and attractive. Blatant sexual innuendo plays a big part in this movie. It is filled with kissing, teasing, smiling at each other, and revealing clothing. The film begins with a technical fail where a lead character is left dangling in the air by a broken stage line, revealing to all that she has no underwear on. The humiliating moment is portrayed as a comedy element. There are lots of references to female anatomy and some not so well hidden references to”other” types of dancing. There are some very inappropriate gestures in the movie, much to disgusting to even mention. The creativity of the directors is shocking in the ways they found to present offensive material.

This movie takes offensive to a whole new level. There is lots of creative name calling, several new terms for parts of the human anatomy that have never been heard before. Yes, there is drinking and partying. There is some slapstick style violence, such as a woman sliding down a staircase and slamming into a wall, a woman catching her hair on fire, and lots of ice bags and boo boos. One of the keywords for the movie is listed as “no panties”. The litany of offensive material could go on further, but there is no need. This is not a children's movie.

The first movie brought them together; this film is about taking it up a notch. The dancing and singing in this movie is bigger and better. The only question is if the audience can get past the offensiveness of the material. The sex, violence, foul language, racial slurs, and general rudeness was used in a juvenile attempt at comedy. This not a movie that many parents would allow even their older children or young teens to see. This family movie review thinks the content in this movie is way over the top.
