Writer and Director Garth Jennings is an admirer of jazz vocalist Shooby Taylor and chose to have his song "Stout-Hearted Men" included in the film. The song was sung by a hippo during the audition scene. Taylor suffered a stroke in 1994 and died in 2003. Jennings revealed that Taylor's son was in his seventies and "just above the poverty line" and hoped the check for rights to the song from Universal Pictures would be beneficial to him. See more »
The last time that Buster Moon rides his moon down to the stage he starts at the top facing the audience. The camera view changes to the audience laughing, then moves to behind the moon to show Buster facing the wrong way, and looking up as if in surprise. He then turns to face the audience and continue his introduction. However, it is possible he just changed positions off screen to jest with and captivate the audience. See more »

Took my 12 year old to see it and we were both BLOWN AWAY! A++
So no joke, I bought the soundtrack while the credits were rolling for the car... for me the Mom! I was so utterly impressed, never got bored and thought it was a kiddie movie, never not wanting to hear the next song. Who ever chose the songs they perform is genius. I still cannot get over the vocals of all of the actors, they were incredible. Jennifer Hudson's rendition of Golden Slumbers is soul lifting. We just saw t after the Christmas rush in 3D, and that was the best way to really appreciate it. If your tween wants to see it, this is one you as a parent will love.❤ I can't get over "Eddie the Eagle" as "Mike", his vocals are beyond incredible.
