What did you think of this film?
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal—some might even say delusional—optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.

Five lead contestants emerge: Mike (MacFarlane), a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena (Kelly), a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Witherspoon), an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Egerton), a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash (Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.

Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.

Based on a true story, Masterminds follows the riotous misadventures of unlikely anti-hero David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) as he pulls off one of the largest robberies in U.S. history. The trouble begins when David, a trusted armored-truck driver for Loomis Fargo, falls for beautiful guard Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig). After she quits her job, Kelly, egged on by local petty thief Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson), persuades David to clean out the company’s vault in Charlotte, North Carolina.

After stuffing a van with more than $17 million of stolen cash, David delivers the money to Chambers’ gang and flees to Mexico to lie low while the FBI searches for the culprits. Steve and his wife Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) buy a mansion with their ill-gotten wealth and dispatch overzealous hit man Mike McKinney (Jason Sudeikis) to Mexico to kill David. Once David discovers the betrayal, he returns to North Carolina on a mission to rescue his true love and expose Steve as the heist’s real “mastermind.”
