THE GOAL FOR 2018: 200 MOVIES WATCHED BY MIDNIGHT NEW YEAR'S EVE!  (AFTER TOPPING OUT AT 194 in 2017)

CAN HE DO IT?

​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

#39 SING (2016)







#39 on the countdown is the animated Sing (2016). Buster Moon (Mathew McConaughey) is a koala bear trying to save his life's dream, the theater where he fell in love with putting on shows. So he decides to put on a singing contest where the grand prize is mistakenly listed as $100,000 instead of $1,000. Hijinks ensue. The contestants that come out to realize their big dreams include beleaguered mother pig of 25 Rosita (Reese Witherspoon); suave crooner mouse Mike (Seth Mc...Farlane); porcupine rocker Ash (Scarlet Johansson) and shy elephant Meena (Tori Kelly). There are a ton of pop songs in Sing, as well as some old standards, all well performed by the cast. The revelation is McConaughey, who is big and bright and cheery and - dare I say it - animated as Buster. From Illumination Entertainment, Sing is a tad familiar but so what - packed with familiar songs, a lot of fun and a few hearttugging moments, it's solid entertainment for the whole family.

SHOULD TLA SEE THIS? I cannot come up with a single reason why not
