* After Amy gets hit with the burrito and her Bella uniform shirt covered in resultant mess on the way to the semi-finals, how is her shirt completely clean for the performance?

And Aubrey looks like the kind of person who would be prepared for any emergency.

** In the sequel John and Gale were doing a podcast, I presume the others were too? If anyone who speaks the languages can confirm this, please do. As for the first film, the only real explanation is the film is a comedy, and they wanted to keep the laughs going through the songs, especially when the Bellas performed the same song for the second or third time.

* Do real-life acapella competitions have actual commentators? It's a little odd and makes no sense to have commentators talking ''while'' the performances are happening. Who watches acapella competitions just to listen to the commentary and not the actual music? At first I thought it was John and Gail being their arrogant selves but during the sequel at the Worlds, you see plenty of commentators from different countries attending it, implying the same.

** It's not, but once Benji noticed the bag and reported it, whoever's in charge of the competition presumably investigated the kid and found out he was indeed in high school. True, many people still carry/wear things from high school long afterward, but carrying a high school bag to a college event ''is'' slightly suspicious.

Added DiffLines:
** [[TruthInTelevision This is actually true of the real life ICCA's]]. There is currently only one round for non-US groups (which seems to be limited to UK groups), and as such the current competition structure only allows one non-US group to progress to the finals. "International" in this case basically means US + UK.

**** Is she stated to actually be from Japan, or is she Japanese-American? Otherwise Amy's still the only non-American member.

*** It's in the rulebook to use multiple songs
to:
*** It's in the rulebook to use multiple songs songs **** ^ Obviously they can ''use'' multiple songs, I'm talking about ''layering'' them, so you have part of a song and part of another going on at the same time, going back to the first song during a third, etc.

** A deleted scene, the Confessional, actually reveals that [[BrickJoke she's been harbouring a secret lust for one of the Trebles for the past four years]]. Chloe tells her to let it go. The Treble in question is Unicycle, who's lines and development were mostly cut so it's likely the audience wouldn't have got the line anyway.

** It's really simple though, the Bellas were ''better.''The Treblemakers did a really good high energy set, but it wasn't at all innovative or unique. The Bellas actually used parts of at least six songs,(Price Tag, Don't You Forget About Me, Party in the USA, Turn the Beat Around, Give Me Everything, Just the Way You Are) but they were done so seamlessly I actually had to watch the scene a few more times to catch all of the various songs and which portions of the song that they were singing at the time. That mash-up/mix-up would have been an insane feat for someone using equipment to create. Their choreography while occasionally hard to see because of the way it's framed is actually really good on top of the fact that the arrangement is insane. Most people learn songs with sheet music or by ear, but still rely on the memory of the way a song was originally written. So they actually had a much harder job because other than what they practiced they had no reference point to fall back on. (Try singing a song you know by heart and skip portions of it, it screws with your brain.) The Treblemakers did a straight up set, but the Bellas utilized every advantage of their team and performed a variety of genres (all pop but different kinds.)In addition, they had a natural advantage - any judge who had seen them perform before was expecting them to do the same set. Lilly's beat boxing was insane, five of them had solos and they had vocal skips, electronica accents, and ''bass'' in an all-female group. Aside from the fact that it's a movie - if you compare the two performances, the Bellas actually won because they should earned it.

Lilly's It doesn't matter that the Treblemakers also changed their set because the judges know they always do. It's not about fairness in that point, but the judges' ''expectations.'' and how they perceived the two groups. (It's like a C student becoming an A student. If you compare them to an A student, you almost always value the C student's improvement more than someone who is consistently good. It's not fair, but true.)Lilly's beat boxing was insane, five of them had solos (more had solo parts) and they had vocal skips, electronica accents, and ''bass'' in an all-female group.
