Storyline

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Buster Moon, a dapper koala, presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal-some, might even say delusional-optimist, who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life's ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition.

Trivia

When Ash's guitar is unplugged and she starts stomping the beat on the stage - Porcupines actually do stomp their feet as a warning when they are scared. See more »

Goofs

Ash's guitar has fret inlays on the 4th, 6th, 8th and 13th frets. Normal positions for inlays are on the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 12th frets. The inlays don't affect the playability of the guitar, but they serve as visual guides for key positions on the fret board and can confuse a player who relies on them. See more »

Excellent movie. Clean entertainment for kids.
19 December 2016 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

We saw Sing at a free preview organized by the makers and AMC. I really enjoyed watching the movie with my kids. I appreciate the fact that the makers did not resort to toilet humor to generate laughs. The entertainment was clean. There were no unnecessary sexual references.

I like kids movies that inspire and Sing managed to do that. It encouraged kids to get over their fears and try against all odds.

All the characters were lovable and unique in their personalities. Movie also had some very good music. Length of the movie was just fine for kids. My kids sat through the whole movie and did not get bored or restless till the end. Everybody in the theater seemed to have a good time. Nice feel good movie to watch with the kids. Go for it.
