6) Pitch Perfect
Sometimes being one of the best movies of the year isn’t about starting with the loftiest subject matter or taking the biggest swing. Sometimes it’s about making the funniest, best damn movie possible given the material, and Pitch Perfect does exactly that. Like Mean Girls before it, the film delves into the hilarious, goofy and heartfelt world of women in their late teens and early twenties, and it manages to produce dozens of killer lines, plenty of big laughs and even some moments of genuine honesty.

The best comedies don’t rely on a single character to generate laughs, and Pitch Perfect is a true ensemble. Rebel Wilson’s Fat Amy and Adam DeVine’s Bumper Allen may lead the charge, but they’re buoyed by some great work from Elizabeth Banks, John Michael Higgins and leads Brittany Snow, Anna Kendrick and Anna Camp. Pitch Perfect gets college. It gets a capella competitions, and it gets exactly where the joke is in any given scene.
