Known Trivia

  • 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.
  • A special screening of the film was held on 25 September 2012 at the LSU Student Union Theater because parts of the movie were filmed on LSU’s campus. The turnout for the screening was so great that only a little more than half of the students in line got in to see the movie. The producer saw that there were more students wanting to see the film and allowed a second showing immediately following the first.
  • The role of Gail was originally written for Kristen Wiig but she declined due to scheduling conflicts. Elizabeth Banks, one of the film’s producers, eventually took the role.
  • ICCAs stands for International Competition of Collegiate Acapella.
  • The other two Barden acapella groups are the BU Harmonics and the High Notes.
  • One of the categories shown during the riff-off is Songs Ruined By Glee.
  • Beca has an ‘Allen Ginsberg’ poster in her dorm room.
  • The gas station they stop at is Kean’s gas station.
  • Brittany Snow said that Rebel Wilson improvised most of her lines and would go on 20 minute tangents that would have the whole cast and crew in stitches.
  • Available categories for the riff-off include Black Michael Jackson, White Michael Jackson, Songs About Sex, Ladies of the 80’s, Overplayed Black Eyed Peas, Ugly Lead Singers, Reggae Time, Stadium Rock, Party Rock Anthems, The Judd’s, and Famous Duets. The only categories exercised were Songs About Sex and Ladies of the 80’s.

Goofs: Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Jesse and Beca are on the grass talking about movies, Beca states that vader is German for father. But the German word for father is actually vater not vader. However, vader does mean father in Dutch.

Plot: Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition. Full summary » |  »

Story: The Barden Bellas are a collegiate, all-girls a cappella singing group thriving on female pop songs and their perfect looks. After a disastrous failing at last year's finals, they are forced to regroup. Among the new recruits is freshman Beca, an independent, aspiring DJ with no interest in the college life. But after she meets Jesse, from the rival all-male a cappella group, Beca has a new outlook and takes it upon herself to help the Bellas find their new look and sound and get back into the competition.Written by napierslogs
