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.

Rolling Stone
Top Critic

The plot may be shopworn, with not much aimed at adults, but the film's message that collaboration can reap greater rewards than competition is appropriate for all ages.

Audience Reviews for Sing

Sing is a sweetly charming, funny and inspiring animated musical, which was surprisingly enjoyable to watch even for adults. The story telling is simple, which easily resonates with adults as much as it does for the children - about not giving up on hopes and dreams, and picking ourselves up when the chips are down. Not only is Sing visually attractive, the power behind this entertaining film is really in its voice casting. Taron Egerton was totally delightful as the teenage ape with the soulful voice.

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.

Though not a standing ovation of a film, its uplifting tone and star-studded cast hit the right notes and give an enjoyable performance to leave a smile on your face. Sing's kid-friendly humor and upbeat sequences, especially its monumental third act, is a notable stride in Illumination Entertainment's continuous momentum of animated storytelling. 3.5/5
