Trivia

Rural folklore has it that porcupines possess the defensive capability of shooting their quills as projectiles, as Ash did in her performance. No biologist has documented the behavior or any natural mechanism that would make it possible. See more »

Goofs

The last time that Buster Moon rides his moon down to the stage he starts at the top facing the audience. The camera view changes to the audience laughing, then moves to behind the moon to show Buster facing the wrong way, and looking up as if in surprise. He then turns to face the audience and continue his introduction. See more »

Brilliant
4 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have just seen Sing with Hubby and two 7 year old's we all thought it was absolutely brilliant. It is rare for us all agree we all enjoyed a film. In fact this is the only one this year.

The music was first class lots of heads rocking to the beat, it had a good variety of music and I am even considering getting the soundtrack.

Rosita Pig was my favourite character and I thought Reece Witherspoon had an amazing voice though really all of them were good singers.

If you are looking to start the New Year off (as due for release in January 2017) I cannot recommend going to see this film enough as "fun for all the family".
