Read the top Pitch Perfect quotes that’ll teach you about friendship, tough times, and more!

Pitch Perfect zooms in on Barden University’s all-female a cappella group, The Barden Bellas. The Bellas were once the biggest champions in numerous singing competitions. But, they’ve been stuck in the same routine for the longest time.

This started to bore the judges and listeners, leading to them losing a competition or two. Change is not something they welcome openly, but they knew they had to make improvements if they wanted to be at the top again.

Everything started to change when Beca, an independent and creative freshman, joined their ranks. As an aspiring DJ, she has a knack for mixing different tunes. With Beca and the new recruits, The Barden Bellas eventually improved their game and built a friendship that would last a lifetime!
