Sing

Kids & Family • PG • Directed by: Garth Jennings • 108 minutes

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Illumination Entertainment's Sing stars Buster Moon (Academy Award® winner Matthew McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal—some might even say delusional—optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life's ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. From writer/director Garth Jennings, Sing is produced by Illumination Entertainment founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy. Sing is released by Universal Pictures.

I was expecting to hear many songs of 2016 in this song but in the end (spoiler) the play songs way back from the 70s that I never even heard of — halotheorange

My wife and I took our kids to see this on the last weekend we spent in a city that had been our home for eight years. It had been a stressful four weeks of air mattresses, living in other people's homes, moving and getting rid of possessions, and preparing to move out of the country. When we were almost done we took a break and went to see this. About 2/3 of the way through the movie, there's a scene where a shy elephant belts out the last verse of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah while standing in the wreckage of a recently destroyed treasured building. And I just started bawling. Four seats down, so did my wife. We did not stop crying until the end. This was obviously in part because of our state of mind, but there is something powerful about music as an expression of a person's heart, and this movie captures that brilliantly. The first 2/3 of the movie leading up to that are fun, though not perfect. But that last third...man. Still gives me chills. — hopchic in Sheffield

Over all, a disappointment
★★★★★
The idea for this movie was very interesting and from the commercial, I gotta say it looked pretty good. But this movie wasn't as uplifting and funny as it appeared. 1st off the idea of the gorilla and his family being criminals was not the type of concept you would put in a kids movie. And it was a very bad influence on young children for having the gorilla (the good guy) trying to steel the prize chest which was basically telling kids its okay to steel things that aren't yours. And how the dad broke out of jail at the end just so he could see his son perform was not touching but wrong. — Dream2cute

Definitely Recommend It🤗
★★★★★
I don't know where to start with this AMAZING movie! The cast is great, the animation is great, the characters are great, and the film is great! The only thing missing is a second film! I watched this movie with my bestie and we left the theater in tears of joy! As soon as Sing came out on Netflix, I was overwhelmed! My favorite characters are Gunter, Ash, & Jonny. If you are looking for a movie that's for kids, has great comedy, and a great theme, then I highly recommend that you watch this movie from beginning to end. P.S. Stevie Wonder ROCKED THAT SINGING!! Yea!!! — justcallme_eevee

This is a beautiful happy movie that just brings a smile to your face. My biggest question is: the mother pig basically engineered a complete, automated home management system overnight. Why not apply to NASA? — TonyMovieGuy

Amazing film!!!
★★★★★
To be honest, this remains one of my favorite animated movies of 2016 ahead of Zootopia. You can really connect to the characters, wanting them to be successful at doing what they love... you really feel like you're part of the world, for me at least. And oh boy the songs they chose. They couldn't have chosen any better songs than the ones on the movie. Loved it! — El capo26

It's OK
★★★★★
When I watch his movie it wasn't too good in the trailer it showed all the good parts Disney usually shows friendship and this movie did not barely — Leland4848

Really bad movie...
★★★★
This was such a waste of time and money. Not a show for children or adults. — Flyboy.Don

good movie but not much humor
★★★★
i was expecting a lot of humor and fun from animated characters (like you get from Minions) but did not get it. Still a good movie with good music and worth watching, but it tells more of a life story of the underdog, than it tries to make you laugh. — papa doon

Forgetable
★★★★★
Cute movie for kids who have never seen the tired plot of a failed person getting "one more shot". Great characters and good voice acting, but the plot holds it down. Nothing new or interesting, but worth renting. — Frank C 66554321.

boring
★★★★
i wasn't able to finish it because it was pretty boring. Kid didnt like it either — Takceya

Amazing movie
★★★★★
What an amazing movie, it was so entertaining, especially for a "kids" movie, we had a great time. Great music, uplifting story and just perfect for the whole family. I absolutely lost it when the gorilla did his song at the end, I don't want to give it away but it was incredible. Buy it, you'll love it! — Pheenix11

Cliché, all the way
★★★★★
I'm glad so many people think this movie is great, it probably is from a particular perspective. If you want to see animated characters singing your favorite musician's song, and don't care about an interesting story or plot, this is your movie. For me though, I would way rather see the musician's perform via their music videos. If there was a good story behind it, I might have felt better about spending the time and money watching it. This is just a money grab that was completely predictable. — MountainBob
