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.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
August 30, 2018
Energetically warm-hearted musical that is cinematic proof that Illumination has more stories to tell outside "Despicable Me."
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

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?
February 21, 2018
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.

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.

SING is a wasted opportunity to really dig down deep to explore a world we'd dream of living in. Worse, it fails to put a song in our hearts.
October 17, 2017
It's over-long and flags when we need it to build to a climax but it's also colourful, funny and tuneful, and sometimes that's good enough.

Puts six massively trite subplots into a blender...and mashes them into a uniform paste that can be spackled across 108 unreasonably long minutes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 21, 2017
The plot is fairly straightforward and there is nothing out of the ordinary. The animation is well-executed and there are plenty of jokes. This will be a crowd-pleaser for the holiday period.

Sing is a lively, crowd pleaser suitable for children and the adults who will want to accompany them.
