My Thoughts On Dreamworks "Sing"



Tonight the family and I were able to enjoy a pre-screening of the movie "Sing". I have actually been waiting on this movie for a while, so given the chance to go see it, I jumped on it! This movie did not disappoint!

Despite my utter excitement and readiness for this movie today, Miss Quirky (8) woke up not feeling well this morning. I was so bummed to think that we wouldn't be able to make the movie but, of course, I'd stay home if my kid(s) were sick. However, as the day progressed, she seemed to be doing a lot better and decided that she wanted to go to the movie. So off we went!

The movie was to begin at 7pm at our local AMC theater. We arrived at about 6:20pm, knowing that the theater would probably be pretty packed. I was right. We ended up sitting just a couple rows back from the screen (notice the photo above). Despite the neck-breaking seating, we were quite comfy and ready to enjoy "Sing".

Musically, this movie was phenomenal. We sang along to popular tunes that we knew and laughed at the sillyness of certain characters performances (just as we do to real singing competitions). The comedic aspect of the movie was fantastic. Everyone in the theater was cracking up at this movie. I think the actors chosen for these roles were perfection, to say the least. And I really loved the story line and the emotional backing of it all.

I may have teared up.....a few times..

If you have the opportunity to go check this movie out, I definitely urge you to. You will smile, laugh (loudly), and just enjoy this family-friendly film. "Sing" will be in theaters December 21, 2016--go check it out! And when you do, come tell me what you think?

 Synopsis:

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Buster Moon a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal-some might even say delusional-optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life's ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition.
