Leah Greenblatt at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a great 83 score, saying: “PP2 sometimes feels less like a movie than a two-hour episode of Glee ghostwritten by Amy Schumer; jokes fly like they’re being shot from T-shirt guns at a gonzo pep rally, and not all of them stick the landing.”
Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it an 80 grade, stating: “The comedy choir wars are more intense, more absurd and more lowbrow fun than ever in Pitch Perfect 2. It is almost impossible not to be amused by the cutthroat world of competitive a cappella.”
Leslie Felperin at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it an 80 score, saying: “Reprising the kind of musical performances, campus hijinks, stinging humor and sassy sisterhood put in place by its eminently likeable predecessor, Pitch Perfect 2 remixes the elements and comes up with something even slicker and sharper.”
Guy Lodge over at Variety, gave it another 80 score. He said: “Kay Cannon’s script is even lighter on narrative than its predecessor, but fills any resulting void with a concentrated supply of riotous gags, and a renewed emphasis on the virtues of female collaboration and independence.”
