I received a copy of SING on blu-ray to review. All opinions are mine.
From Illumination Entertainment, the studio that brought you THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS comes an animated comedy about finding the music that lives inside all of us.
SING stars Matthew McConaughey as Buster Moon, an eternally optimistic koala who puts on the world’s greatest singing competition to save his crumbling theater; winner Reese Witherspoon as Rosita, an overworked and underappreciated mother of 25 piglets desperate to unleash her inner diva; Scarlett Johansson as Ash, a punk rock porcupine with a beautiful voice behind her prickly exterior; and Taron Egerton as Johnny, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies.
SING is the musical comedy event of the year!
My family couldn't be more excited for the release of SING to blu-ray! SING has many fun characters who each have a challenge to overcome to achieve their dreams. My personal favorite was Rosita, the mom of 25 active piglets, who dreams of singing and dancing on stage effortlessly. Many moms will relate to juggling kids, housework, and the day-to-day ins-and-outs of balancing life goals with family.
SING was nominated for a Golden Globe, and it's easy to see why. From the plot line, dynamic characters, to the toe-tapping music, there wasn't a moment that didn't keep my kids' attention.
On a family-friendly scale, there is the usual bit of crude humor/jokes that are in there for the adults and thus the PG rating. (For example,Gunter wears a thong in one scene) Nothing was too over-the-top. My family was cracking up throughout the whole movie, especially at Gunter's silly antics.
There are some great life-lessons to draw from this film about hard work, determination, overcoming challenges and facing your fears.
Here are two great quotes to sum up the themes of the film:
“Don’t let fear stop you from doing the things you love.”
“You know the thing about hitting rock bottom? There is only one way to go, and that is up!”
There are many great bonus features including our personal favorites:
3 Mini Movies: Gunter Babysits, Love at First Sight, Eddie's Life Coach
Music Videos: "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing-Tori Kelly
"Faith" - Stevie Wonder & Ariana
"Set it All free" Scarlett Johansson
"Set it All free" Scarlett Johansson
Our favorite mini movie was Gunter Babysits. Gunter is hysterical as he takes on watching all 25 of Rosita's piglets for the evening! My girls danced, sang, and begged to replay the music videos, especially "Faith". The lyric videos are handy so you can sing along. We will definitely have to download the soundtrack on iTunes to play in the car. The music is upbeat and I love Stevie Wonder!
SING is funny, energizing, and heart-warming entertainment for the whole family!
