Based on my experience in school, I assumed a three hole punch would figure into my everyday life more often than it has.

Personal life: Anna Kendrick dated director Edgar Wright, who directed 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' in 2009, though they split in 2013.
The idea of making a film based on those colourfully hairy little plastic trolls was met by quite a bit of scepticism when it was first announced.
When the Trolls filmmakers managed to get Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake to voice the lead characters Poppy and Branch in what would become a riotous musical comedy, cleverly titled Trolls. Kendrick admits that she was intrigued when she first heard about it. "I had trolls growing up," she says. "I had the pencil toppers, which made it seem like homework was fun, even when homework wasn't fun. They are that kind of ugly-cute. So my first question to them after they finished pitching me the movie was, 'Does Poppy have a diamond belly button?' Because the jewelled belly button trolls are the best trolls. They said, 'No, but she has glitter freckles!' So I was like, okay, that's fine."

In voicing the character, Kendrick says she kept the image of Poppy in her mind the whole time. "I just love that she is tiny and she has pink hair and she loves parties," she says. "But she's also on this adventure to save her friends. Nobody else in the troll world is brave enough to go, and she's the one who goes after her friends. She even has a song to psych herself up and be brave and be courageous while being tiny and pink."

Almost pathologically buoyant, this brightly colourful animated comedy is so cheeky that it's impossible to dislike. The plot may be thin, and the wackiness a bit too full-on, but every moment is packed with smart verbal and visual jokes. This rapid-fire energy keeps us laughing all the way through, while the lively song score has us humming along and wishing we could get up there and dance.
It's set in a garish fantasy world in which sweetly happy trolls are locked in a mortal battle with gloomy bergen who think the only way they can achieve happiness is to eat a troll. It's been 20 years since the trolls escaped to form a secret forest community, so they throw a party to celebrate. Led by Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the festivities feature so much music, glitter and hugging that the bergen's Chef (Christine Baranski) spots their location. The paranoid troll Branch (Justin Timberlake) had warned that this might happen, and sure enough Chef sweeps in and grabs a handful of trolls to take back to bergen King Gristle (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Feeling responsible, Poppy sets out on a quest to rescue them, and Branch grudgingly accompanies her. They also get help from the lovelorn bergen scullery maid Bridget (Zooey Deschanel).
There isn't a moment in this story that carries even a hint of actual suspense, but the action scenes are still exhilaratingly madcap, and the darker moments along the way generate proper emotion. Thankfully, the lesson is so painfully obvious (you don't need to eat a troll to be happy!) that the filmmakers don't bother hammering it in. Instead, they fill every scene with deranged wit, ridiculous gags and lively character detail.

Watching this gross-out comedy, it's clear that the gifted cast and crew had a great time making it. Scenes are packed with wildly ridiculous improvisation, as the script throws characters into some genuinely outrageous situations. And yet it's never actually funny. The longer the film goes on, the more the audience will wonder why they don't feel in on the joke.
It's loosely based on the true story of chucklehead brothers Mike and Dave (Adam Devine and Zac Efron), whose parents (Stephen Root and Stephanie Faracy) tell them they can't go stag to the wedding of their sister (Sugar Lyn Beard) in Hawaii. They have to find dates to calm down the antics that have ruined family events for years. So Mike and Dave put an ad on Craigslist, and it goes viral, drawing the attention of slacker flatmates Tatiana and Alice (Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick). Pretending to be nice girls, they win over Mike and Dave and head to Hawaii for the big event. But the girls are even more anarchic than the boys. So it's no surprise that a wave of disruptive mayhem follows.
Basically this is a simple coming-of-age story, structured like a standard romantic-comedy that plays out in a series of messy set-pieces. Every beat of the plot is predictable, and the big surprise is that the filmmakers seem terrified of genuine sexuality. Despite using sex and nudity as the (ahem!) butt of most jokes, the film is childish and even prudish. And it doesn't help that virtually all of the gags are obvious and cheap.

The ‘Pitch Perfect’ actress says she doesn't do being perfect very well.
Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick has said she would never be able to be a ‘perfect’ celebrity like Taylor Swift. Kendrick, who is known for having one of the funniest and most relatable celeb twitter accounts, says she is just too snarky and cynical even when it comes to her fans, but luckily that’s what they expect.
Anna Kendrick knows she’s no Taylor Swift.
"I could play Madame Bovary and I'd still end up being dry and cynical," Kendrick told Net-A-Porter's The Edit. "There are times where someone will be like, 'Do that thing! You know, do your thing!' I get mildly annoyed by that. But on a greater scale, I'm lucky that's [my] reputation; when I'm snarky with people, they know that's just how I communicate.”

When their sister announces that she's marrying her partner in Hawaii, Mike & Dave's mum and dad are instantly horrified by the possible antics their sons could get up to.
In a bid to calm their potential actions, it's suggested to the boys that they both bring a respectable date to the wedding. Someone they can present to their families and show a completely different - and more mature - side to their personality.
Alice and Tatiana are two girls who could actually rival the brothers and any of their past behaviour, who see Mike & Dave on TV talking about their search for a partner and decide that they're just the girls to accompany the boys to the island wedding.
