Sing and Bride Wars

Illumination proves it’s more than Minions with Sing, a musical starring humanoid animals. Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) is in financial trouble and in danger of losing his theater. He plans a singing competition with a $1,000 cash prize, but thanks to his assistant a couple of extra zeros were added and were blown around the city before it could be fixed. Animals show up in droves to audition, but only a few are left standing including Johnny (Taron Edgerton), Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), Gunter (Nick Kroll), Mike (Seth Macfarlane), Ash (Scarlett Johansson), and Meena (Tori Kelly)
After the theater is destroyed, the animals work together to build an outdoor theater so that the show can go on.
People either love or hate this movie. There doesn’t seem to be any in-between. I love it. It feels long and slow at times, but the characters are all interesting and each one has good story that brings them all together. The musical numbers are fun. I didn’t know Scarlett Johansson or Reese Witherspoon could sing. It’s a fun movie worth checking out. I’m looking forward to the sequel!
Buster Moon: When you’ve reached rock bottom, there’s only one way to go, and that’s up!

Due to a mixup, Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway) have their weddings scheduled at their dream location at the same date and time. Neither is willing to change the date and both go to great and hysterical lengths to ruin each other’s wedding.

This one of my favorite movies I’ve seen this year. I never knew I needed to see Chris Pratt and Anne Hathaway play an engaged couple until I watched this movie earlier this year. They should do more movies together. And Steve Howey (Van from Reba) can play a character with a brain. Who knew?
I would’ve rated it higher, but that strip club scene ran a little too long for my liking. Other than that, Bride Wars is funny and really enjoyable.
