An all time favorite like "Dirty Dancing!"
22 July 2002 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

I have loved this movie since I was younger. The only version I have is taped off of tv and it's so old and worn that the quality is pretty bad. This movie is an all time favorite of mine, to me it's a classic like Dirty Dancing. Yeah it is a little cliched, but I always cry at the ending. I just graduated high school the end of May and this movie gives me inspiration, and I loved the senior class's performance of Atlantis, it not only signifies the end of their school, but also of their time together, but they celebrate and rejoice, and yeah I still cried, but it also makes me excited for the time I had and the times yet to come. I think it's a wonderful inspirational message and theme, and nobody second rates themself to impress some stupid boy aka "Grease"-yes a classic favorite of mine, but she gives up all her values and morals for some grease head, plus some of the songs are pretty dirty, that old classic loved so much has a hint a bad moral and theme. ANYWAYS I love Sing in fact right now I'm trying to find a real copy, that's not half black and white with faltering sound, because I love the songs! I have a TAPE of the soundtrack, so I'm not sure how to get a recent copy. AWESOME MOVIE, BACK TO THE BASICS, which I think is important to have in society today.
