When Bring It On came out it registered a pretty large blip on the pop culture radar. Girls saw it because it appealed to them, while guys saw it for Eliza Dushku and Kirsten Dunst. Either way, people saw it and knew the movie.
After that there were tons of movies that tried to do the same thing. Now, in 2012, we get Pitch Perfect, which is basically Bring It On with a heavy dose of a cappella. This one stars the very talented Anna Kendrick in the outcast role with Brittany Snow as her recruiter and Bridesmaids’ Rebel Wilson providing the funny.
One of the writers of 30 Rock, Kay Cannon, wrote the screenplay for this film while CW-staple John Moore is making his feature film debut as director. Yeah, he’s been behind the camera for TV shows like Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill and Everwood. So now you know the audience for this film.
