Critic Consensus: Sing delivers colorfully animated, cheerfully undemanding entertainment with a solid voice cast and a warm-hearted -- albeit familiar -- storyline that lives up to its title.

Critic Reviews for Sing
After conquering the box office with yellow minions and pets with secret lives, Illumination Entertainment returns with its sweetest and most charming project yet.
The concept of the movie is so baffling that it seems to have been cobbled together, madlibs-style, from pieces of other projects.
The movie doesn't come close to the humor and heart of [Illumination's] summer hit, The Secret Life of Pets.
Kids will like the animals and the mayhem and won't mind the predictable plot. Adults should appreciate the entertaining musical pairings.
Sing doesn't have the grit or the grace notes of Zootopia.. No potent metaphors here about predators and victims - the film slides by simply by shaking its sillies out. You could do worse.
Audience Reviews for Sing
Not my kind of movie but the kids seemed to enjoy it even if it does drag and is so predictable, The lack of laughs really hurt this movie from being better, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D, The voice cast was great especially Seth Macfarlane who was as he always is great and the ending was pretty fun but it's soon very forgetful and it's more of a film for young girls than anyone else.
"Sing, sing a song / Sing out loud / Sing out strong..." sang Karen Carpenter in a 1973 hit song penned by Joe Raposo. Oddly enough, that similarly titled ditty is NOT included in Sing. This jukebox musical contains over 85 tunes ranging from 1940s standards by Frank Sinatra to current pop singles. These are heard throughout both in the background of scenes or sung in competition by the contestants. The compositions work and many actually feel as though they were written for the drama. Katy Perry's "Firework" as sung by Rosita (Witherspoon), and Elton John's "I'm Still Standing" sung by Johnny (Egerton) as his climatic number at the end, are galvanizing pop hits that pluck your heartstrings. Johnny's incarcerated father discovers his son's vocal talent from the TV in his jail cell. I can't explain why I got choked up, but I did gosh-darn it! There's a lot here that feels familiar. I mean did we really need yet another version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"? Please retire that ballad immediately. Nevertheless, I freely admit that it's beautifully sung here by Tori Kelly. 2016 has been a stellar year for animated films. The bar has been raised incredibly high. Sing doesn't reach the heights of the year's very best (Zootopia), but I still left the cinema with a smile. fastfilmreviews.com
Inoffensive little charmer that fails to fully engage sympathy but is not terrible either. I was impressed with how the usual racial undertones given these animation ventures were entirely avoided, providing an even staging.
