Beca and Chloe are not gay?: Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 | Film Review

*This review contains spoilers, HOWEVER the spoilers have been carefully chosen, and do not not allude to the plot.*

By the end of this review all you queer shippers will have added Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2, to your watch list.

Top Three Reason To Watch The Pitch Perfect Film Series:

1. The Shower Scene (Pitch Perfect):

And yes, it is just as kinky as it sounds…

This is the first time Beca and Chloe have a one on one, and the natural chemistry is startlingly obvious. Unlike the traditional teen romance, long walks on the beach and bunches of roses are substituted for steamy sex singing lessons in the shower. Without giving too much away… *whispers* I think they may have just come out of the cubicle.

2. The Stares:

If I haven’t given you enough proof of their gayness already, then the stares are all the added verification you need. Does Beca and Chloe’s relationship really look like a mundane platonic friendship to you? I thought not. The super sexual gazes say a thousand words, the greatest of which is ‘I love you.’ The exciting news is that Pitch Perfect 2 had high viewer ratings, meaning a Pitch Perfect 3 is almost guaranteed to be written, so look out for even more flirtation!!!

3. The Almost Kisses:

Almost…

The almost kisses are my favourite scenes, and you can find me at the cinema shouting ‘KISS, KISS YOU DUMMIES’ every few minutes. The question often asked is – are the producers queer-baiting? The truth is, they know just how diverse their audience is, so this probably does have a part to play in how they portray their relationships. If there is queer-baiting involved I have most certainly fallen for it. These are two films where anything goes, and your imagination will fly you across the rainbow.
