SING (2016 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Sing—terrific, computer animated musical—relies substantially on musical hits spanning several decades, a wide range of artists, and diverse musical styles to create a heart-appealing, family friendly entertainment piece that is neither slow nor boring. It gently reminds us that Hollywood (and the musical family that supports it) has consistently worked to completely entertain and delight us across generations of time.

Storyline

Buster Moon (voice of Matthew McConaughey) decides to hold a musical competition in hopes of resolving his financial crises that involves keeping the family theater viable. Through one disaster after another the intrepid Buster Moon maintains a positive attitude in hopes that his dreams will be realized as he helps others realize their dreams.
