NORTH QUAD—LSA Sophomore Alex Locher’s worst fears came to a sudden realization after a screening of the film Pitch Perfect on his girlfriend’s laptop Wednesday night.
“Huh. That actually wasn’t that bad,” Locher said upon completion of the film, continuing to add that the film he had expected to hate was, in fact, “pretty good and kinda funny.”
“I really thought I wasn’t going to like it,” added Locher, who caved into his girlfriend’s repeated requests to watch it after persistently reassuring him that it was more than just a glorified Glee rip-off.
“I’m not normally into singing a capella chick movies, really, but this one was different. I don’t want to give too much away, but there’s a character named Fat Amy and one song is actually really good because they sing it naked in the shower. That was probably my favorite part. And Anna Kendrick is hot, and she has this super angsty relationship with her dad. What can I say? I’m a sucker for girls with daddy issues.”
Locher is apparently not alone, as many boyfriends across the nation have recently come out and admitted that the film had its merits and that they just might even like it.
Amateur film critic and boyfriend Noah Levithan commented on the phenomenon, stating “Pitch Perfect is a real game changer. It’s the first female-oriented movie to be widely accepted by men since Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis went down on each other in 2010’s Black Swan.”
In response to the film’s popularity, a sequel to Pitch Perfect is currently in the works, something male fans of the film eagerly await.
“If they make a sequel I hope they go for a hard R,” said Locher, “I’d love to see that blonde chick’s jugs.”
