* During the campfire scene in Pitch Perfect 2, how is it that all of the Bellas seem to understand the significance of "When I'm Gone"? Only Chloe and Aubrey saw Beca's audition in the first film, and the song (if I recall correctly) never made a reappearance beyond that. This especially goes for Flo, who wasn't even ''in'' the first one.

** It might have become part of the Bellas legend: this chick who doesn't even audition with the right song but is allowed to join, rises to the top and leads the group to glory.

* This is just me being nitpicky, but ''why'' is ''TheBreakfastClub'' soundtrack in a college radio station's current playlist? I work in one (as the go-to music guy, actually, so I get especially pedantic about this type of thing), and in any other college station, ''any'' CD from the 1980s would be in some type of retro section, not in the featured music section, which is where Beca seems to pull it from (IE: the newest music in a college station is put near to the board so as to emphasize their play over anything else).

*** Besides, Beca's kiss wasn't like "I'm in love with you" it was more of a playful thing that happened in the moment. I'm not sure if we're supposed to infer they're now lovebirds.



** Same reason the american football championship is called the "World Cup"?
*** Um, it's not. The World Cup is an international competition of Association Football. The American Football championship is called The Super Bowl. The American dominated (there is one Canadian team) Major League Baseball championship is called The World Series, making it likewise misnamed.

** Wouldn't be weird to think each of them had a Bella uniform extra shirt, I've heard of performers doing that in case of emergency. And Aubrey looks like the kind of person who would be prepared for any emergency.

* 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?

** 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.
