Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper koala who 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.
Five lead contestants emerge: Mike (MacFarlane), a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena (Kelly), a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Witherspoon), an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Egerton), a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash (Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.
Earlier this month, Caiden and I had the perfect “Mommy & Me” movie date at a special screening of SING with The MOMS. The movie is now out in theaters and we both recommend watching it!
I’m one of the few that don’t like to watch singing competitions, so I was skeptical about this animated musical comedy. But to my relief… SING is not just about a competition between different animals signing our favorite tunes while watching them grow as singers. The movie had heart and each character had their own struggles to overcome…outside of the competition. It’s a feel-good movie that gave us lots of laughs and memorable quotes that I hope Caiden absorbed…
