Pitch Perfect (2012)
Beca (Anna Kendrick), a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group in this formulaic but laugh-out-loud-funny comedy. Injecting some much-needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition. Just try to resist couch-dancing to the a capella numbers—including Ace of Base, Gloria Estefan and The Bangles. Just try. Available at amazon.com.
