Number of Times Seen – 1 (30 Dec 2013)
Brief Synopsis – An all-female group of A Cappella singers try to win the National championship.
My Take on it – I decided to check this movie out after my friend Cinema Parrot Disco reviewed it.
I was expecting an OK movie with terrible music. What I got was a terrible movie with good music.
I am NOT a fan of reality shows that deal with music (like The Voice or American Idol) or even Glee because I dread hearing songs I really like ruined when someone tries to either imitate or do their own version of the original song.
This movie turned the tables on me because I actually liked much of the music here, but felt the plot, storyline and characters were just horrendous.
The only character I actually liked was Jesse, but that was only because his character is an adament movie fan who happens to love movie music.
Guess I could relate to that… 🙂
My apologies to my friend CPD for not liking your (sorta) recommendation. Keep em coming tho 🙂
Bottom Line – Terrible waste of time. Music is OK, but the story and acting are just really really bad. Don’t waste your time on this turkey.
Rating – Razzie Worthy
