Monkey and I have been enjoying watching Sing on DVD over the last few days. Sing is available on Digital Download, Blu-ray™ and DVD from today, 22nd May 2017, courtesy of Universal Pictures (UK) and would certainly keep the kids entertained over the half term holidays.
Featuring a star-studded line up of voice over actors from Reece Witherspoon to Matthew McConaughey, Sing has really kept us entertained. It tells the story of Buster Moon, the koala theatre owner who’s falling on hard times. The bills need paying and he needs to do something drastic to pull the crowds back in. He decided to produce the world’s great singing competition with a prize of $1000 on offer. But due to his secretary’s clerical error the fliers go out with the prize showing as $100.000. Needless to say, with that kind of money on offer, the auditions are packed.
Buster is convinced that the competition will save his theatre, even with the higher prize money to find.
We meet Rosita, a housewife pig who gave up her singing ambitions to raise her family. She really can sing. With 25 piglets to look after she certainly has her hands full, and goes to some ingenious lengths to ensure the piglets and her husband are taken care of so she can join in with the rehearsals.But can she continue to balance motherhood and her work on stage? She’s teamed up with Gunther the pig to liven up her routine.
There’s Meena the Elephant, who again has a wonderful voice, but suffers terribly from stage fright. She totally fluffs her audition and runs away in shame. But as rehearsals start she decides to take Buster a cake and try again. But things don’t go quite to plan, but she does get taken on as a stage hand after helping solve the electricity shortage problem. Buster hasn’t been paying his bills. Will Meena’s true talent ever come to light?
There are some other great characters like Johnny the Gorillla, son of a mobster and another great talent. Then there’s Mike the Mouse with a voice like Sinatra. He thinks he is totally the bees knees and that he has the competition sown up, he starts to splash the cash before the curtains have even come up on stage.
Everything goes wrong when Mike’s debts catch up with him, the theatre ends up in rubble and Buster is reduced to running a car wash. Could the contestants come to his aid, and help him recreate the theatre and bring the show to life?
