Let's face it, singing kids are all the rage. It's the 'Glee'-ification of America. But, I guess if it ain't broke don't fix it. And this Anna Kendrick-led, ensemble, a capella, college competition film is sure to be a crowd pleaser for the right crowd. It's filled with wall-to-wall musical numbers to keep your appendages tappin', and plenty of comedy to keep you smiling. (And as with every gal-pal comedy since 'Bridesmaids' you can count on some outrageous gross-out humor mixed in.) Of course, I personally wasn't quite as enamored as the rest of the audience, as it's a bit too predictable and a bit too long for what it is, and I really think could have used a few more recognizable faces. (Though producer Elizabeth Banks shines once again in a relatively small role.) But, to be sure, the right audience of women, gay men, teens, and 'Gleeks' will surely eat this one up.
