Storyline: Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Buster Moon, a dapper koala, 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.

Reviews
In a city of animals a singing talent show is sprung.
My wife and I saw this at home on DVD from our public library. It is animated, it is enjoyable and funny in spots, but in the end it is just an extended cartoon, cleverly done.

The key character is Buster Moon (voiced interestingly by Matthew McConaughey) who was struck by a live performance when he was but a young boy and decided that he would be a show business person. As we meet him as a young adult things aren't going well, financially, paychecks are bouncing and the bank is threatening foreclosure.

The movie doesn't mention the multitude of "singing competition" shows that have sprung up in our real world but surely the writers of "SING" were inspired by them. So Buster decides to hold one, to maybe get audiences so he can raise money. He has his hapless lizard of a secretary type up a notice but her wayward artificial eye hits the zero key twice on the word processor, she doesn't notice, and many yellow pliers went out stating a prize of $100,000 instead of the intended $1,000 prize to the winner.

That much cash, and a chance for fame, generated very much interest and a full day of auditions. Of course nothing goes as planned and the theater is destroyed. But in the end they are able to have an open air performance where the old theater stood, and a big audience came.

There are some good lessons here buried in the story and the antics but still it is an extended cartoon just for entertainment. Buster Moon

I'm not a big fan of most animated kids' films, these days, but this is one of the better ones.
'SING': Four Stars (Out of Five)

The new hit computer-animated comedy musical; about a bunch of anthropomorphic animals that enter a singing competition, hosted by a koala bear that's trying to save his theater. It was written and directed by Garth Jennings (who also helmed 2007's 'SON OF RAMBOW', and 2005's 'THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY'), and it was co- directed by Christophe Lourdelet (a veteran animator, and first time filmmaker). It stars the voice talents of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlet Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, John C. Reilly, Nick Kroll, Jennifer Saunders and Jennings himself. The movie received mostly positive reviews from critics, and it's a blockbuster at the Box Office. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The story is set in a world inhabited entirely by humanoid animals. Buster Moon (McConaughey) is a hard working koala; who owns a classic theater, which hasn't been doing well financially (in quite some time). Buster is extremely optimistic that he can save it though, if he puts on a singing contest. When the $1,000 prize money is accidentally advertised as $100,000, many animals are eager to audition. Buster is determined to press on, despite not having the reward money that's promised. Multiple talented misfits ambitiously pursue their dreams, by participating in the competition.

I'm not a big fan of most animated kids' films, these days, but this is one of the better ones. It's entertaining, beautiful to look at, and it's pretty emotional, at times, and inspiring as well. The music is all catchy, and fun to listen to, and the voice cast all does a good job. The film is funny, without being too overly silly too. I really enjoyed it, and I think most kids will as well.

Second-hand embarrassment
And so this ends the tiring amount of movies all about animals this year.

I went to the theater to see a movie for Christmas. I was torn between wanting to see Star Wars Rogue or Sing. But since I haven't seen much of the original Star Wars, I wasn't too sure about seeing it and decided against it to see Sing since I love songs.

As a music fan, I was very disappointed. It was bland, it was clichéd, and the dramatic parts were forced, or is it just me ignoring the movie by looking at my phone because I don't give a crap and it was quite boring?

Rosita's piglets and those radio animals don't contribute much to the story and were just there for almost pure annoyance. Taking the piglets out will not chance the story and maybe even the radio animals.

It's like the writers weren't even trying to make these characters sympathetic. Few of the characters were jerks The plot is contrived and lazy. The jokes were funny and annoying at the same time especially that fart scene, I have had enough of fart scenes! They are NOT THAT funny!

The character design was ugly and sick to watch.

Now for the plus, well, the animation was dazzling and sparkling. Most of the voice actors did really well singing and voicing their characters and they should be proud. There was a little obnoxious singing in there but not that much. I think kids might like to sing along to some of the great songs in here, other songs that were covered I didn't like so much. Though, I don't understand why for God's sake, they put Anaconda in a kids movie! Even if it's just a little bit, ugh!-_- And what is with people and twerking these days?

Though, this movie could've been better and I was disgusted at how many famous actors they put in this movie. Just because it's a movie about characters singing famous songs, you put famous actors in there? And Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorite actors and she should be spending her time voicing a better movie than this.

There was a bit too many famous songs in there for me.

I guess I'm not into these type of movies.

Singing to the Heart's Delight: Movie Review of Sing
The animated film Sing provoked audiences to SING along to catchy songs, tear up in times of trouble, and to rejoice when a character gains confidence. Sing was targeted toward young children, but the plot line, the songs, and the cast helped make this animated film a classic for all ages.

The plot line taught children about moral compass. The story encompasses Buster Moon, head of the theater, trying to increase viewership at the theater by making a singing contest. However, mistakes were made when Miss Crawly accidentally pushes two too many zeros to make the competition worth $100,000 instead of 1,000 dollars. Unlike other movies like The Avengers that show a definite hero and a definite villain, Sing shows the backstory of all of the characters, and brings them together into one cohesive story. Ash, a porcupine in a one-sided relationship, and Rosita, who looks for a way out of her life with her many, many children, both come together to compete against each other for the singing competition. Johnny's family is part of a crime syndicate, and Meena is too shy to perform in front of other people, and they both come together to compete in the singing competition with Ash and Rosita. The character's stories come together as one and create the plot line of Sing. The plot line is not a hero-villain story; the plot shows the individual growth within each character and how others interact within the changes of the character. There are no villains except themselves. In a few ways, the villains of Sing is the characters themselves. Morally, Sing teaches children to never try to compete with others because it is unhealthy for mental health. They should only compete with themselves. When the characters were all fighting against each other, they would be mean and terrible toward each other. However, when the characters work together, the competition show becomes a beautiful show where everything flows smoothly. The plot line shows other characters influencing and helping other characters into making big changes, and the audience gets to see each character transform: Ash gets rid of her boyfriend, Rosita and her husband finally re-spark their romance, Johnny's father realizes Johnny's potential, and Meena finally overcomes stage fright. Thus, the plot line teaches children that they should not compete against other people, but only with each other, meaning the movie will be targeted toward children instead of adults.

The songs were catchy: kids and parents alike will continue to sing the soundtrack weeks after watching the movie. From covers of Call me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen to Under Pressure by Queen, both children and parents can sing along since the songs covered are over a long time period, so everyone can at least recognize one. The soundtrack is quite diverse from modern songs like Shake it Off by Taylor Swift and Don't you Worry 'Bout a Thing by Tori Kelly, to originals like Set it All Free by Scarlett Johansson, these songs are sure to amaze. The placement of the songs really brought out emotions for the audience also. For example, when the band of animals finish the "competition," they begin to rebuild the theater, one brick by a time, which Nana Noodleman begins to sing a powerful ballad: a mashup between Golden Slumbers and Carry that Weight by the Beatles. The placement of the songs evoke emotion from the audience, making the audience enjoy the vivid emotions of the movie.

The actors and actresses voicing the characters are quite known to the public eye. Scarlett Johansson is known for her work with Marvel Studios playing as Black Widow, and also in the movie Lucy as Lucy. Reese Witherspoon is known for her roles in Legally Blonde, Hot Pursuit, and American Psycho. Tori Kelly is an actual well-known singer singing songs like Should've been Us. Matthew MacConaughey is also known for his work in Interstellar, and Seth MacFarlane is known for his work in Family Guy and Ted 2. Thus, this increases ethos in the movie because well known actors are cast into the movie.

Therefore, the movie Sing will be remembered by both parents and children alike. The moral of the story is for kids to remember to never compete against other people, but to only compete against themselves. The songs were so catchy from different time eras that anyone could sing along to it, every grandparents. The placement of song really evoked emotion from the audience, making the audience fall more in love with the songs and the overall movie. The actors and actresses were so well known from other movies that their voices were recognizable. Sing overall was a great children's movie with great animations for all to enjoy.

I don't like it
It's an utterly predicable manipulative piece of garbage, the songs are so unoriginal since all of them was taken from other artists, there aren't much reasons why these characters are animals, and the title itself, "Sing" is so self-explanatory and uncreative, I already knew how bad this movies is going to be without even watching it. Also why? They overuse the same design of characters and locations over and over and it's so lazy and dull. The budget is significantly low compared to other big-budget animation studios like Disney and Dreamworks. There is nothing special about this film whatsoever, they're so lazy they just took other artist's song and put it into the movie None of them were really from themselves!

Autistic Reviewers Opinion Of This Movie.
"In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario's attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists' find that their lives will never be the same." This was a movie that Jay and Nick (The Autistic Reviewers) had never really planned on seeing. But, at the last second it started receiving a lot of positive feedback and loads of good comments, and it had an amazing voice cast, so why not? Despite the fact that this movie is a kids movie, and us being 26 years old we have moved way past those kiddie movies. The good news is the movie had a very adult message behind it and it was so realistic on so many levels. While the annoying fart and burping jokes are meant to be for kids, we were both able to look beyond that and see the realistic struggle in Theater Showbiz. The pain, the sweat, the lies, the time and the money to do this sort of thing would be just so unbearable to go through. So the movie did an excellent job at achieving this message.

The voice cast are also incredible. The best singers were Reese Withspoon, Seth Macfarlane (surprisingly) and Taron Egerton. The only complaint we would have about the songs is that they were cut all the time. Every single time you are hearing the actors sing it cuts it short just as you are getting into it! Apart from all this, despite never going to the movies to see little kids movies this one was an exception. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. Take your (annoying) kids and go and see this movie. It's not perfect, but it's definitely not disappointing!

A whole new kind of Hybrid flick
Forget the book version reviews, they like their own voice.

I was very surprised at this movie. The depth of the character development for animated people/animal things. The number of characters was complex but complimentary. The thorough plot and plot twists. And then the music, singing. Super heavyweight Jen Hudson, pros like Reese Witherspoon, Tori, Jennifer Saunders, John Reilly. The singing built up throughout. And shocker to me Scarlett Johansonn was awesome. Its got fart jokes, jiggly pig bellies, sad family tales and a really super ending.

Pay your dues, have no expectations, sit and enjoy. Sing my arse, they Jennifer Hudson'ed this flick. Awesome !!

Daughter's (14 months old) - favorite movie, protagonist is a sociopath
so for kids that get more than the music not a good message.

love the music and the supporting characters, but Buster Moon the Koala is more than just an optimist, he's a jerk.

-He doesn't pay his contractors -He doesn't pay his bank - He goes into a fancy restaurant and brings his own food - He routinely takes advantage of his best friend - He steals electricity - He steals water - He insults the "talent", and tries to tell them what to do (and why only 5 acts? - because it is a movie - I know) - He causes the destruction of a building that could have killed dozens - He insulted his most talented performer and it took her to sing to convince him to let the show go on, and his performers did all of the work.

He did nothing the entire movie other being a total sociopathic idiot.

good CGI animation musical!
So as 2016 ends, I decided to give this a watch on Putlocker because well, it's been advertised a lot and of course, it has a lot of well known stars!

I was even stoked to have realized Seth McFarlane was on this and omg, his voice just melts you, it is just so sexy! The frank Sinatra look on his mouse character, really suits his part! You don't get to see enough of McFarlane singing in animation especially when he's on Family Guy!

I don't have a particular favourite singing animal on this but all were very good. I definitely would recommend all ages should take a look at this!

Classic Illumination, but not quite classic animation
As is to be expected given Illumination's recent reputation, "Sing" was a happy, feel-good movie for all ages, and certainly lived up to the hype. While it wasn't quite in the leagues of the "Despicable Me" movies that gave Illumination its name, "Sing" was funny, entertaining and beautifully written. While its plot was a tad cliché, it was a movie that could generally be enjoyed simply for its humour and its star-studded cast, not to mention the fantastic musical numbers. There were quite a few stars who showed their singing talents for the first time - Seth MacFarlane affirmed his soulful voice, Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johansson were spectacular, and Taron Egerton blew me away with his incredible (and unexpected) voice. Generally, while it was a little clichéd and the plot was familiar, "Sing" was well-written and relatable to a theatre and film enthusiast, and was a feel-good comedic film with a valuable lesson in it.
