(2021) (voices of Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Animated Comedy/Musical: A group of musical animals tries to put on a big Broadway-caliber musical, but to pull it off they must convince a reclusive former rocker to join them.
Buster Moon (voice of MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY) is a showbiz koala who's hoping a talent scout -- who's looking for big acts for Redshore City casino owner Jimmy Crystal (voice of BOBBY CANNAVALE) -- will think that their Moon Theater show is the right fit.
She doesn't, but Buster gets his old crew together -- including his lizard assistant Ms. Crawley (voice of GARTH JENNINGS); pig singer Rosita (voice of REESE WITHERSPOON), shy elephant Meena (voice of TORI KELLY); flamboyant German pig Gunter (voice of NICK KROLL); singing gorilla Johnny (voice of TARON EGERTON), and punk rocker porcupine Ash (voice of SCARLETT JOHANSSON) -- and they head for the big city.
When their sneak audition for Mr. Crystal flops, they ad-lib and pitch Gunter's idea for a sci-fi musical. That includes lying that they not only have permission from reclusive rocker Clay Calloway (voice of BONO) to use his song but that he's also going to be in the production. Crystal loves the idea but only gives them three weeks to get it ready.
As Buster, Ms. Crawley, and Ash try to convince Clay -- who hasn't been seen in fifteen years following his wife's death -- the rest must contend with Crystal's airhead daughter, Porsha (voice of HALSEY), who wants the lead part; self-centered actor Darius (voice of ERIC ANDRE); and choreographer Klaus Kickenklober (voice of ADAM BUXTON) who's so demanding of and demeaning to Johnny that the gorilla reaches out to street performer feline Nooshy (voice of LETITIA WRIGHT) for help with his dancing and performance.
With the clock ticking down toward the first performance, Buster does what he can to make that happen, convince Clay to join them, and avoid Mr. Crystal's wrath.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they liked the first "Sing" movie (or any featuring talking animals) they probably will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For some rude material and mild peril/violence.
