A fourth reference to Back to the Future (1985) is when Ash (Scarlett Johansson) and Lance (Beck Bennett) have their audition abruptly stopped; not dissimilar from Marty's experience in the beginning of Back to the Future (1985). See more »
When Rosita's automated recording plays on the tape recorder, there's a dice sitting on the table. Number "1" is on top, and number "6" is facing the camera. All six sided dice are manufactured with the 1 on the opposite side of the 6, so this representation is inaccurate. See more »

Great Story, Tons of Songs, Awesome 3D Animated Movie
Well this movie was a bit different than I anticipated. When I watched the trailer, all I can think of was a movie only adapting the singing competition in the television like American Idol or The Voice with various characters competing to win. But it turned out to be something completely different. I personally was satisfied with the story and characters development. I think we can probably relate to or symphatize on the characters.
The songs in this movie were a lot. If you think that the movie Trolls has got a lot of songs, then this is even more! You can definitely like some of the songs sung by these characters and probably knew most of them as well. Meanwhile the performances of these characters in the finale were real awesome. You would feel all sort of emotions watching them. Despite the movie categorized as suitable for general audience (including children), I believe the story of the movie was a bit heavy. Children could be entertained in some parts of the movie, or even the singing part. But I feel the movie is more suitable for teens and above to be able to capture the essence/moral message of the movie which was to always pursuit your dreams. There was also a very spirit lifting phrase that Buster said in the movie, which you can see for yourself.
This movie was produced by Illumination Entertainment, the production company that brought to you Despicable Me and those cute Minions. Unlike the previous animated movie The Secret Life of Pets where there was a short very funny movie of Minions before the start of the movie, this one did not have it. There was no scenes after the end credit either. So if you wish to go to the rest room after holding it during the movie, you can go right ahead. Unless of course if you want to see the end credits and wanted to see what songs were there in the movie.
The animations as usual were amazing. I am quite sure there are glimpses of good effects if you watch in 3D. The songs were good, so if you want to enjoy a better music effect, then you definitely can enjoy them better when watching at cinemas with good special sound effects. Oh 1 thing that I was not happy was the trailer of this movie that had been playing in theaters earlier. I think it revealed too much information and important scenes. But anyway, if you are looking for fun entertaining animated musical movie with lots & lots of songs, then this movie is definitely for you.
