A woman returns to her high school as a teacher and convinces the school punk to become involved in the schools annual production "sing". When the board of education decides to close the school and refuses to allow the annual event to be held, the neighborhood and students come together to put the event on one last time. A cross between "Fame" and "Footloose". Written by

High notes hit a sour tune in this mediocre SINGing act.
This late-80s musical should pay tribute to the FAME Hall Of Shame. Very cultural in its dancing talents, the decade inspired and represented a generation. Alas, it's time to rediscover this ancient experience once again, and think of SING as a worthless relic that best compares to the days of Elvis (or even FAME). The songs sound like the upbeat adult contemporary format that is worth listening to, but given SING as the title, it has a problem with casting singers with terrible vocals. Patti LaBelle would be the exception due to her mainstream focus in this film. Give this one credit for hard labor on the kids' part in putting on a screen show, saving SING from further decay. One similar rock musical leads to another...and another...and another. Oh, the wasted memories....
