Here’s Proof That Pitch Perfect Totally Overuses the ‘Aca’ Joke

1 minute read

YouTube channel “ScreenJunkies,” which makes brutally honest parodies of movies in the form of trailers, has released one for Pitch Perfect, which the narrator sarcastically hails as “the best film of all-time about making noises with your mouth.”

It describes the campus in the film as a “fantasy version of college” where “the students actually like and respect a cappella groups.” While the movie’s fans love Anna Kendrick’s outsider character, the Internet jokesters describe her as the kind of person one wouldn’t want to be around in real life—someone who doesn’t like to work, doesn’t like movies, doesn’t like it when guys flirt with her, and doesn’t like that her dad pays for college.

And it slams the way the characters use the first few letters of the word a cappella to describe everything: “aca-nough, aca-stop it,” the narrator says.
