Sing is sort of the pinnacle of cliched movies. In this case, the movie is based off a real-life event that occurs in many Brooklyn-area high schools called Sing, where the seniors and underclassmen square off in a musical production. This movie centers around that event at one Brooklyn-area high school. The new teacher Miss Lombardo (Bracco) is in charge of the event, and she brings in the senior class bad boy and good girl to work together, even though they do not like each other. You can guess what happens. For fun, the school board makes it known that the school will be shut down at the end of the semester, and it is not allowed to have the Sing event. No reason is given for this, except so the students can rebel and have the event anyways. Completely predictable film, but a very strong performance by Bracco (with a very thick Brooklyn accent)helps a lot to make the movie flow better. Also, look for Cuba Gooding Jr. in a very small role near the end of the film.
