Pitch Perfect 2 Directed by Elizabeth Banks
This kind of sparkly karaoke musical – which began with Moulin Rouge! 15 years ago, hitting its twin peaks with Mamma Mia! on the big screen and Glee on TV – is a matter of taste, and personally I’m not a fan. Hearing well-known tunes being covered only makes me long for the originals, while the hyperactive dance numbers and frenzied sing-a-long vibe makes me feel like a trapped clown at a 12-year-old girl’s birthday party.

Revel in its unalloyed campy gloss and you’ll find a formulaic but funny film with two extremely likeable female leads in Kendrick and Rebel Wilson. Formulas are formulas because they work. And Pitch Perfect 2 is packed to the rafters with genuinely uproarious moments.
