Pitch Perfect script
Pitch Perfect (2012)
Synopsis: College student Beca (Anna Kendrick) knows she does not want to be part of a clique, but that's exactly where she finds herself after arriving at her new school. Thrust in among mean gals, nice gals and just plain weird gals, Beca finds that the only thing they have in common is how well they sing together. She takes the women of the group out of their comfort zone of traditional arrangements and into a world of amazing harmonic combinations in a fight to the top of college music competitions.

ALICE:

One, two, three, four...

They begin the arrangement and choreography to Ace of Base’s,

‘The Sign’. The performance is over-polished and safe.

ALICE (CONT’D)

RAMBOON NA BOO YEAH!/I, I GOTTA NEW

LIFE, YOU WOULD HARDLY RECOGNIZE

ME, I’M SO GLAD... (song continues)

GAIL (O.C.)

So just how did the Bellas make it

to the finals?

JOHN (O.C.)

Hard work, Gail. When it comes to

the technical aspects of the

performance, they never falter.

Plus they are very good looking.

ALICE:

IT’S ENOUGH, ENOUGH.

BELLAS:

OO-OOOOOH!

ALICE:

IT’S ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT I...

“The Sign” rendition has lulled the audience into a coma-like

state. One JUDGE even yawns.

GAIL (O.S.)

Feels like we all just took a left

turn into Snoozeville, John.

JOHN:

And parked in a lot where they do

not validate.

GAIL:

At this level of competition

they’re a little too traditional,

don’t you think? No surprise

factor.

JOHN (O.C.)

Yes. It’s like after nine years of

marriage knowing exactly what my

Orthodox Jewish wife will be

wearing to bed.

GAIL:

The wig, John?

JOHN:

And the wool skirt.

John and Gail wince. Aubrey steps up to solo.

AUBREY (INTO MIC)

UNDER THE PALE MOON WHERE I SEE A

LOT OF STARS/IT’S ENOUGH TO KNOW/I

SAW THE SIGN AND IT OPE(NED)...

Aubrey projectile PUKES and we FREEZE. The puke hangs there

frozen in mid-air.

TITLE CARD:
PITCH PERFECT. END OPENING CREDITS.

8 EXT. HIGHWAY - DAY 8

We hear Kansas’s, “Carry On Wayward Son” as a Prius travels

down the highway, passing a sign: “Barden Univ., Next Exit.”

TITLE CARD:
FOUR MONTHS LATER.
