Consensus: Sing delivers colorfully animated, cheerfully undemanding entertainment with a solid voice cast and a warm-hearted -- albeit familiar -- storyline that lives up to its title.

After conquering the box office with yellow minions and pets with secret lives, Illumination Entertainment returns with its sweetest and most charming project yet.

Kids will like the animals and the mayhem and won't mind the predictable plot. Adults should appreciate the entertaining musical pairings.

[Further in] scope than the film's various promotional material suggests.

The concept of the movie is so baffling that it seems to have been cobbled together, madlibs-style, from pieces of other projects.

Sing doesn't have the grit or the grace notes of Zootopia.. No potent metaphors here about predators and victims - the film slides by simply by shaking its sillies out. You could do worse.

The plot may be shopworn, with not much aimed at adults, but the film's message that collaboration can reap greater rewards than competition is appropriate for all ages.

An energetic and optimistic film with good music, good design, and a simple and nice story all the way to the end. [Full review in Spanish]

Sing relies too much on singing than going what's behind the purpose of the film. If there's like literally anything I have learned from this movie,… More
