SING is an animated feature about a group of animals taking part in a singing contest.

Language

There are uses of 'butt', 'jerk' and 'jeez'.

Threat

Characters are sometimes placed in danger. For example, a lighting rig is accidentally dislodged and falls to the theatre stage, although no-one is hurt. In another scene, a large, elaborate aquarium stage set shatters and water rushes through the theatre, sweeping the audience into the street. Although characters panic, it is quickly established that everyone is safe.

A running storyline concerns a mouse character who is pursued by a gang of bears he has cheated in a card game. Although often seeming to be on the point of being eaten by the bears, the character always finds a way to save himself.

There is also rude humour with a bison character passing wind repeatedly because he is nervous about performing on stage.
