This delightful animated feature from the studio behind the Minions movies takes a tired-sounding idea—a comedy set around a talent contest—and turns it into something winning and witty. Sing is fast and frenetic, dashing from character to character, song to song … The animation itself might not be the most inventive out there (this isn’t Pixar), but where Sing soars is in its one-by-one attention to its ensemble of beasts and its obvious passion for music: It’s nearly impossible to watch this film and not be humming the Beatles’ “Golden Slumbers” for days afterward.
