A modest family feature that offers more than empty flash.

It's good fun.

Perfectly likable stuff of the sort that's harder to create than critics realise. But nothing all that memorable.
January 26, 2017
It feels passionless and market-tested; an unconvincing cover version of fun.

It's cheery, toe tapping fare that kids are bound to enjoy and that has enough nostalgia and in-jokes to keep the adults happy enough too.

Everyone has a lesson to learn or an obstacle to overcome, but Jennings keeps the tone high-spirited rather than snarky or preachy.

After conquering the box office with yellow minions and pets with secret lives, Illumination Entertainment returns with its sweetest and most charming project yet.
December 22, 2016
The concept of the movie is so baffling that it seems to have been cobbled together, madlibs-style, from pieces of other projects.
December 22, 2016
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.

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.

It jumps around from song to song, and from plot point to plot point, unable to trust in the attention spans of modern children, or even just modern human beings.
December 21, 2016
The songs are rudimentary, the animation doesn't sparkle, the story doesn't inspire.
December 21, 2016
The animation itself might not be the most inventive out there (this isn't Pixar), but where Sing soars is in its one-by-one attention to its ensemble of beasts and its obvious passion for music
December 21, 2016
A genuine crowd-pleaser, with sparkling characters, feel-good tunes and a big-hearted spirit.

If only real life could so easily be realigned, by a singing pig.

It's hard to beat a good singing contest. And anchoring it all is McConaughey's pleasing drawl. His koala is a nice balance, neither too sweet nor too nasty, neither too corny nor too cynical.
December 20, 2016
Entertainment whose pace and sound, while dizzyingly brisk at points, still accommodates characters and a setting that are terrifically rich ...
December 20, 2016
The rousing and touching moments line up in orderly fashion, like planes on the runway during the holiday rush.
