Sing it Again
13 May 2003 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

I recorded this movie on a video when it came on TV for the second time. The characters endeared themselves to me(especially "Tommy" and "G Smooth") and after wearing out the video I went and purchased the DVD. And, so as not to wear out the DVD (just trying to listen to the great sound track) I bought the CD as well. As a Christian, this movie really appealed to me. It has drama, romance, comedy, and spirituality without all the foul language, blood and guts, nudity, and sexual references from beginning to end that overshadow a lot of secular films with good plots. Unfortunately, these negative aspects are the things many viewers have become conditioned to and even a standard by which they tend to judge other movies. Perhaps "Sing" doesn't have the best dialogue, direction, or editing but I had no problem overlooking these things because basically it was a good story that an entire family could watch. I'd definitely recommend this movie to the newly saved and no doubt to those so-called "tough" young men who find themselves being touched by the love of God in ways they never expected. This movie had a lot of heart...something the Bible says God looks at. I give "Something To Sing About" five stars. I think He would, too!
