So, you are searching for additional films similar to Pitch Perfect. Who can fault you? In 2012, when the first installment of the franchise was released in theatres, it became an immediate cult favorite.
The film, starring among others Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, and Brittany Snow, is about a capella group named the Barden Bellas competing for nationals. The film is based on a nonfiction book on the world of collegiate capella ensembles; thus, art imitates life.
If that sounds like the type of film you’re interested in, here are a few similar films to add to your must-watch list.
Movies Like Pitch Perfect
1. The Hustle (2019)
If you’re looking for a comedy, The Hustle is it. Anne Hathaway portrays Josephine Chesterfield, a glamorous British woman who defrauds wealthy men.
Disaster unfolds when Penny Rust, portrayed by Rebel Wilson, joins forces to steal money from an unapproachable tech tycoon in France. When promoting the picture, the two stars quipped that Pitch Perfect 4, should it ever be completed, should be nominated for an Oscar.
2. Bandslam (2009)
If you enjoy the music in Pitch Perfect, then Bandslam is a good film. This film starring Vanessa Hudgens is about a teenager (Aly Michalka) who recruits a fresh student to manage her garage band. In addition, she desires his assistance in making the band so good that it can defeat her ex in a battle of the bands. In addition to the romantic comedy vibes, there are also some nice songs.
3. Table 19 (2017)
Anna Kendrick stars in this quirky comedy about a lady who is disinvited from her best friend’s wedding after being dumped by the best man.
She attends nonetheless and sits with a group of outcasts — you know, the type of wedding guests — where they engage in conversation and learn more about one another. The film had a strong cast, including Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Craig Robinson, Tony Revolori, and June Squibb, despite receiving less than stellar reviews.
4. Blockers (2018)
This film is directed by Kay Cannon, who also penned the Pitch Perfect series, and stars Leslie Mann, Jon Cena, and Ike Barinholtz as three parents urgently attempting to prevent their daughters from engaging in sexual activity. The Atlantic stated on the film, “Blockers succeeds due to the time invested in its young characters.
Each character is delightful, notably the supremely laid-back Kayla and the more reclusive Sam (who knows she’s lesbian but hasn’t figured out how to tell her family and friends). And while the title suggests that the film is about the parents, the most of the film focuses on the girls’ plan to actually have s*x, making it significantly more contemporary than the premise suggests.
5. Lemonade Mouth (2011)
The Disney Channel’s Lemonade Mouth is comparable to The Breakfast Club meets Camp Rock. A bunch of outcasts band together to express themselves via music. They did not anticipate forming a band while incarceration, but the time together helps them to bond.
The adolescents learn about genuine friendship and self-confidence. This film also features a variety of catchy songs that you may want to add to your playlist.
6. La La Land (2016)
In Los Angeles, a pianist (Ryan Gosling) and an actress (Emma Stone) fall in love while attempting to reconcile their future goals.
“La La Land,” which won six Oscars, will become a classic musical in a few years. It was written and directed by Damien Chazelle, who crafted a stunning masterpiece with superb performances and an incredible original score.
7. Jersey Boys (2014)
The musical “Jersey Boys” is a biography of the Four Seasons. It is about the ascent, the difficult times, and the eventual victory of becoming a generational icon. This film investigates the relationships inside the group, with a particular focus on lead singer Frankie Valli, and is more than merely a memorial performance (though it does have musical pieces).
8. The Producers (2005)
The plot of “The Producers,” which was nominated for four Golden Globes (including “Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical”), follows Max Bialystock, who was once the king of Broadway but now sees all of his productions close on opening night.
After a visit from his accountant, Leo Bloom, they devise a scheme to gather far more money than necessary for a performance and then ensure that it is panned.
9. School of Rock (2003)
After being expelled from a rock band, Dewey Finn (Jack Black) becomes a substitute teacher at a tough private school and attempts to form a rock band there. Jack Black is an outstanding and charismatic actor and the film’s soul. His astonishing performance will keep you captivated to the screen. There is a plenty of humour and excellent music.
10. Easy A (2010)
“Easy A” is an interesting homage to “The Breakfast Club” director John Hughes. Olive, a lonely high school student, lies to her best friend about losing her virginity, but the story quickly spreads and she is labelled a slut. Olive, first embarrassed, wears a ‘A’ on her outfit as a homage to the famous literature “The Scarlet Letter.”
