Sing (U)

Sing (U)

Animation, Comedy, Drama

In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario's attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists' find that their lives will never be the same.

The critical consensus

Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon lend their voices to an entertaining if unremarkable animation.

Although it’s like being assaulted by a jumping jukebox for two hours, Garth Jennings’ first animated movie has enough bounce and brio to carry the day. Immensely likeable.

****(*)Chris Hewitt, Empire Online, 23/01/2017

Nobody could take against Sing. 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.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 25/01/2017

It’s got all the personality of an X-Factor finale.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 26/01/2017

This tale of cute warbling creatures aimed at a family audience is impossible to dislike but hardly memorable.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 26/01/2017

Big-hearted fun for all ages.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 27/01/2017

Unabashed fun, but with a subtle, human message underneath all the wailing.

Manuela Lazic, Little White Lies, 27/01/2017

The musical contest gets an anthropomorphic makeover from Garth Jennings, with help from Matthew McConaughey as a koala impresario.
