Pitch Perfect 3

This third installment in the musical-comedy franchise about the Bellas, a female a cappella group, runs a half-hour shorter than the 2012 original and its 2015 sequel, the wafer-thin plot barely sustaining the songs and romance. Now out of college, the members flee their disappointing jobs to reunite for a USO tour around the Mediterranean, during which Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) faces down her estranged father (John Lithgow), a criminal mastermind. The best zingers come from John Michael Higgins as a fatuous documentary filmmaker who contends that the Bellas are over the hill at 30; 43-year-old Elizabeth Banks, who plays his onscreen partner, produced the blockbuster franchise, so who's got the last laugh? Directed by Trish Sie; with Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and Hailee Steinfeld.
