Trivia

What Buster Moon said in Japanese to the five Japanese red pandas roughly translate to- "Your routine is horrible, your footwork stinks like feet". It's possible he may have wanted to say that "You are in my show, sleep well and start fresh tomorrow". See more »

Goofs

The last time that Buster Moon rides his moon down to the stage he starts at the top facing the audience. The camera view changes to the audience laughing, then moves to behind the moon to show Buster facing the wrong way, and looking up as if in surprise. He then turns to face the audience and continue his introduction. However, it is possible he just changed positions off screen to joke with the audience. See more »

Sing is the most enjoyable of the musical computer-animated movies we've seen this year!
21 December 2016 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

This is the third computer-animated movie in a row that features actual singing by the characters after Trolls and Moana. The title basically means just about every character is singing something because it's about a singing contest being produced because the producer wants something that brings the people to his theatre, not like those previous shows that didn't do much for his career. Seems like all genres of music from various decades is represented here. My movie theatre-working friend was especially enamored with the gorilla singing a song associated with his favorite singer, Elton John. This movie does show the struggles of putting on a show and possible disasters that happen when risks are taken. I really don't want to reveal any more so I'll just say that me and my friend highly recommend Sing.
