From the creator of Minions and Secret Life of Pets, Illumination Entertainment is lighting up our year-end holiday season with Sing. You get to enjoy a cast of famous movie stars such as Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon just to name a few. They will be singing their hearts out not just to entertain us, but also to let us know that dreams do come true, albeit a little bit slower. Besides being heart warming, Sing proves to be equally entertaining as well. I brought my 2 kids to watch this movie and they totally love it. :)
Set in a world of anthropomorphic animals, the movie main star is the the ever-positive Koala Buster Moon whose music theater is in a bit of a turmoil-a financial pit to be precise. Instead of closing down his theater, Buster intends to save it with a singing competition. So it is like an American Idols for animals. Despite facing numerous hurdles and up against all odds, Buster does all he can to make sure his show will be a success.
What makes this musical comedy tick is that it revolves around real life issues. This movie will make you think twice about quitting when all doors seem to have been shut. To quote what Buster said, "You know the thing about hitting rock bottom? There is only one way to go, and that's UP!" This line alone is already very inspiration. This movie also shows us that when there is a will, there will always be a way to do something. You can ask Rosita about how she "handles" her 25 rambunctious piglets. LOL

Last but not least Sing is not only a movie for the kids. It is one great film for adults alike. There are so many messages in the movie that are bound to inspire all of us to be the best that we could as long as we grit our teeth and hold on to what we believe is true. Apart from that Sing also teaches us the value of teamwork and that sometimes...sticking together is the way to go. It is a very education movie for children and serve as a great reminder for us adults too. My verdict: Entertaining & Inspiring.
