Looking for a fun night out with the kids? The new musical comedy film Sing premiered at the cinema on January 27, and will have your kids dancing and singing all throughout the theater. But don’t be fooled, this movie is not just for your kids’ entertainment, but also for your own. Parents have not been ashamed to admit that they, too were tapping their toes and singing along to some of the famous hits (from Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”) sung in this show-stopping movie.
This light-hearted and soulful movie follows the life of a showman koala bear named Buster, played by Matthew McConaughey, who sets up a singing competition in order to save his fading theater. With the reward of a large cash prize, his competition attracts thousands of animal contestants. In the end, Buster narrows his competition down to five final contestants: Mike the mouse, played by Seth McFarlane; Meena the Elephant, played by singer Tori Kelly, who has the voice of an angel but suffers from terrible stage fright; Rosita the pig, played by Reese Witherspoon, a mother with her hands full with 25 kid piglets and a husband that works all day; Johnny the gorilla, played by Taron Egerton, who is the son of a gangster and wants to break out of the family business; and Ash the porcupine, played by Scarlet Johansson, a punk rocker with a soulful voice trying to stand out apart from her controlling boyfriend. Watch as these contestants experience the ups and downs of show business and fight for what they believe in.
This all-star cast will captivate your heart with their relatable struggles, beautiful voices, and many teachable moments for your children. Watch these heart-warming characters fight for what they truly want and reach for their dreams with all odds against them.
