The critical consensus

Gail and her co-host John’s commentary is still edgy and hilarious, but Wilson’s shtick has started to grate, the songs aren’t quite as catchy and, with a large cast competing for your attention, Pitch Perfect 2 feels overstuffed.

**(*)(*)(*)Katherine McLaughlin, The List, 11/05/2015

The golden-larynxed franchise graduates with a merit.

****(*)Olly Richards, Empire Online, 11/05/2015

If you loved Pitch Perfect you’ll find plenty to enjoy here because it’s pretty much exactly the same film, but there’s enough wit and warmth that it feels like a worthwhile sequel.

***(*)(*)Matt Maytum, Total Film, 11/05/2015

This well-deserved sequel serves up more helpings of bawdy comedy, sisterhood bonding and a college life focused on performing pop standards.

***(*)(*)Steve Rose, The Guardian, 14/05/2015

Some spirited slapstick but this sequel ends in feeble fashion.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 14/05/2015

Verdict: Terrific fun.

****(*)Brian Viner, Daily Mail, 15/05/2015

A little ‘verse, chorus, verse’ but never humdrum.

***(*)(*)Cormac O'Brien, Little White Lies, 15/05/2015

Overlong, it could be sharper and funnier but hits enough high notes with its infectious joie de vivre.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 17/05/2015

It may not quite live up to the uproarious original, but this a cappella sequel outshines most teen comedies.
