I have seen Pitch Perfect twice now. I wish I could say it’s because of the awesome musical numbers (of which there are several), or the incredible comedic styling’s of Rebel Wilson, but that would be a lie. I can’t stop watching this movie for one very talented, hilarious, sexy reason: Skylar Astin. Astin plays the romantic lead opposite Anna Kendrick, and I don’t know if it’s his smirk, his charm, his dancing, or some irresistible blend of the three that has us here at Fangirly so worked up. For the gentlemen out there, I have provided the following clip. Take notes, because it’s this kind of charisma that makes a lady sit up and take notice.
Now I know what you’re thinking. There is no way this guy could possibly get any sexier, right? WRONG. Allow me to prove my point with a clip.
Oh, you want more? You can see Skylar Astin in Pitch Perfect, in theaters now!
I don’t want you to think that by putting this show in our Fanmanly feature I believe that this is exclusively a “bro” show, but let’s not deny that it appeals and is aimed to the 18-24 male demographic. It’s just the especially cool girls that are willing to see through that frat boy facade and recognize this show for the wickedly hilarious farce that it is.
Any show that can make you laugh through the cringing at poop jokes, biting social commentary, and degradation of humanity. These characters are awful human beings. There is no getting around it. They are awful to each other (constantly comparing Dee to a bird and making Charlie do “Charlie Work”), they are awful to everyone around them (making a priest turn to drugs and trying to take a dumpster baby to a tanning salon), and they are awful to themselves (Charlie takes steroids to be a better underground street fight and Dee and Dennis get addicted to crack).
If any of that doesn’t sound like something you would enjoy watching, then this show isn’t for you because it gets worse. Admittedly, I myself can only watch so much of this show in one sitting without beginning to weep for mankind knowing that there are actually people out there that are this sociopathic, narcissistic, and moronic.
I can’t mention this show without giving a shout out to my main man, Charlie, who is the only character on this show (with the occasional exception of Mac) who has any redeemable qualities. Yes, he is not the brightest bulb in the box, but his heart is in the right place. Don’t believe me? Watch the clip below. All he wants to do is help struggling cat owners.
And watch the show tonight when it premieres its eighth season!
