Pitch Perfect 3 Review
This was...sloppy. I wanted to like it. I really like the first one and while I find the second to be a carbon copy of the first, I feel it has some merit still. This has a couple of funny moment but overall has too many things going on and tries to do too much in a short time.
I get needing extra plot points to make each character feel necessary but some points only get two or three scenes that last 1 or 2 minutes. Others get a bit more but some of those are retreads from the other movies and then all that gets shoved aside for a tone switched third act that comes mostly out of nowhere. Then after what is basically a parody of Taken (not joking) Kendrick's plot thread gets concluded and the other "plot points" get wrapped up DURING THE CREDITS! The writers couldn't even be bothered to wrap things up while the audience was still in their seats.
Like I said, I was looking forward to this and wanted to like it. And there were a couple funny moments that (coincidently) involved poking fun at the said poor writing and the music was well performed of course. But I honestly feel that the music elements, riff off (yeah another one) were all written first and then the plot was fragmented around these music scenes
