Writer/Director Garth Jennings’ Sing is a delightful animated musical comedy in which a koala bear (voiced by Matthew McConaughey) tries to restore the glory of his father’s theater through a singing contest the prize for which was supposed to be $1,000, but which his bobble-eyed assistant (voiced by Jennings) has mistakenly advertised as $100,000.
The auditions are won by a rag-tag group including creatures voiced by Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton and Tori Kelly.
The animation is superb and the story and singing build in energy to a rousing finale.
Sweet and cute are the operative words for this production. I give Sing a 4.3 out of 5.
