Like they say, sequels are never quite as good

Pitch Perfect 3 is a movie that focuses more on the Barden Bellas. It is full of music and characters... but they're missing a lot. Believe me, the music is absolutely amazing as always, except for people who've seen the first two, the movie doesn't exactly fit and feel like a Pitch Perfect movie at all. For a family movie, the movie also doesn't really fit. With more sexual references and a close up of a man's crotch grab, it's an iffy family movie, and a lot of adults I know also didn't really enjoy it. Okay for 12 and up.
