Sing is a good-natured, well-intentioned bit of jukebox fluff that is at its most frustrating when you can see how it could have possibly gone in a more interesting direction.

One thing we've learned about Illumination this year is that they can make really great animated films that doesn't have one minion in it.

There aren't enough praises to sing about Sing... Sing is pure wow and will have you floating on air and grinning from ear to ear. And a koala voiced by Matthew McConaughey? Perfection.

The key of 'Sing' is, therefore, its chorus of animals, often developed with a great sense of humor, promoting laughter in themselves and not necessarily through funny situations. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sing might be passable in a lesser year of animation but the fundamental flaws in the film kneecap it from the beginning.

There is absolutely no reason the characters in Sing are animals...the plot would function if they didn't have tails and scales, and the film doesn't even bother to whip up much in the way of animal-based comedy.

I walked out humming some tunes and having an over all good time.

Understands the unironic way the premise of talent contest reality shows sincerely connects with people, and why this particular arrangement of tunes and character stock-types works even though (indeed because) they've become "cheezy" and overly familiar.

There are pleasures to be found in Sing. The question is how willing people are to sit through some tired sitcom plotting to get to it.

It's just amazing that [the cast] can act vocally and sing.
August 30, 2018
Energetically warm-hearted musical that is cinematic proof that Illumination has more stories to tell outside "Despicable Me."

Sure, they can all sing. But that's not really the point.

"Sing" is two-dimensional and this gets in the way of it being any more than a blip on the radar of memorability.

In a year chock full of animated films with talking animals, 'Sing' possibly has the most heart.

[Zootopia's] comparisons to Sing would not be so harmful if this animal music contest had more to offer... [Full review in Spanish]

Why can't monkey's and penguins in this world have higher aspirations?

It spends way too much time on the antics of Buster and his slacker sidekick in a plotline that kids won't get and parents won't enjoy.

If this were live-action, I think it would be a yawner. Even Glee had more plotting. But the animation sells it and makes it entertaining for all ages, despite the tired premise.
December 5, 2017
It never leans on the concept of singing animals too much, allowing for some character-driven scenes that make us actually care about these animals, why they are in the contest, and most importantly, their aspirations and dreams

Most animated movies try to deliver a message and end up sounding preachy. Sing too, has one -- once you hit rock bottom, there's nowhere else to go but up. The sheer heart with which its characters live and convey the sentiment, is incredible.
