Overall, I think the movie served as a nice conclusion to the “Pitch Perfect” franchise. I appreciated that the movie didn’t have a similar plot to the first two, as many trilogies tend to do.

The beginning of the movie started with a really dramatic cut scene that leaves you confused until they show the “3 weeks earlier” screen. I thought it was a really interesting choice and left me engaged in the movie to find out how it happened.

The movie had many subplots occurring alongside the main plot, focusing mostly on Beca (Anna Kendrick), Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) and Aubrey (Anna Camp). The different struggles among the characters as the group traveled Europe was a nice addition, making it stray further from the typical plot of the Bellas competing for a title. I thought the movie had a strong ending as well, making for a nice farewell to the Bellas as they pursue their individual dreams.

A few scenes in the movie seemed a little gimmicky, with a few of the characters having love interests as cheesy as the first two movies. As a whole, I enjoyed the movie and recommend it for all Barden Bella fans.
