One of the movie's lines refers to being "pitch slapped." Kelley Jakle competed on
The Sing-Off with the Backbeats, and one of their opponents was Pitch Slapped.
Aubrey's hair is up/down between shots in the final dance performance.
Take Bring It On, Glee (not in the icky cheesy way, but because there's
singing involved, the good kind), Mean Girls, and add some
quick-witted, sharp-tongued dialogue and commentary, and you have the
funniest of movies.
At first I was leery: a movie about A Cappella singing groups; I
thought at best, it would be a teen flick. Yes, I know, Anna Kendrick.
But bigger (some better) names have made some doozies. But, I was
unbelievably surprised. Every kind of humour is covered here, and done
to absolute perfection. You will be adopting many, many of the lines
into your daily lexicon.
For me, Rebel Wilson (as Fat Amy) and Elizabeth Banks (as Gail, the
commentator) have some of the most hysterically smart lines ever
committed to celluloid (right up there with Young Frankenstein).
