A theatre owning koala bear named Buster (Matthew McConaughey) is down to his last few dimes when he’s struck by a flash of genius, to re-spark interest in the theatre he’ll hold the world’s greatest singing competition. With the hopes of a big dollar prize on the line the hoards appear to perform in Buster’s theatre. But naturally, sometimes showbiz is more promise than payoff, will this ragtag cast and crew be able to hold it together or will the bank repo the theatre and shut things down for good? Written by Garth Jennings and directed by Christophe Lourdelet and Garth Jennings, this light family comedy big on song and earnestly filled with talent brings plenty of smiles from it’s star studded cast; with character voices provided by A listers such as Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, and Jennifer Hudson the musical and comedic potential is evident. And, while the story line doesn’t provide the audience with any new angles, and the comedy isn’t the most rapid fire in the bunch, there’s still heart and rhythm in this animated gem. Quite simply, it’s a simple story with a crowd pleasing review of solid hits, parents, for just a few minutes shy of two hours you’ve got your ticket to something the whole family can enjoy and not feel guilty about. Sing is rated PG.
