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
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
When Sing finished, I noticed something I don't notice often at the movies anymore. The full audience began to applaud and stand for the film even before the credits began. It was a lovely moment and shows how much the film connected in its lighthearted approach to musical performance and friendships. Illumination has always been a studio that values their commercial priorities over the creation of well-rounded films, however, outside of the original Despicable Me, Sing is a film that truly has it all. It has humor in spades, especially during a thrillingly hilarious audition segment, and heart that is highlighted by the film's final joyous thirty minute stretch of performances. The film even gets rather intense and dark in moments bringing its characters to low places of misfortune. It almost hits Pixar levels of sad, but of course not for very long. It was staggering how the film balanced its many storylines with an ensemble cast of characters whom all get a reasonable amount of backstory and character-defining moments. There is real character development here, which wasn't evident from the highly obnoxious ads released for the film. Overall, sure Sing isn't about much, but its creative musical numbers, fun characters, and celebration of musical theatre make it a lovely way to end 2016's slate of stellar animated films. Illumination has impressed me which is something I couldn't say about their last couple of films. Job well done. Rating: 84
Sing relies too much on singing than going what's behind the purpose of the film. If there's like literally anything I have learned from this movie, it's that songs can easily get annoying throughout majority of this movie's screen time.
