Here are the best Sing movie quotes. Sing tells the story of a theater-owning koala who hosts a singing competition. The musical comedy was written and directed by Garth Jennings. Showing in 3D, Sing opened in theaters in the United States on December 21, 2016.

In Sing, Buster Moon (voiced by Matthew McConaughey) is a koala who owns a music theater in his town. The theater is failing so Buster, much to the disapproval of sheep friend Eddie Noodleman (voiced by John C. Reilly), announces his plan to host a singing competition. This, however, gets off to a rough start when his iguana assistant, Karen Crawley (voiced by Garth Jennings), prints $100,000 as the prize rather than $1,000.

The chance of fame and fortune of winning the competition excites those in Buster's town, including street musician mouse Mike (voiced by Seth MacFarlane), pig wife and mother Rosita (voiced by Reese Witherspoon), punk rock porcupine Ash (voiced by Scarlett Johansson) and mountain gorilla Johnny (voiced by Taron Egerton), among others. All vie for the top prize, while trying to keep up with their own personal obligations at the same time.

These Sing quotes are some of the best lines from a fun movie that brought some music to theaters which were already showing other great December 2016 films such as Solace, A Kind of Murder, Collateral Beauty, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

    Hitting Rock Bottom

    Buster Moon: You know what's great about hitting rock bottom? There's only one way left to go, and that's up!

    In perhaps a reflection on his company's current status, Buster reminds everyone that when you get down, the only way to go is up. This Sing movie quote might not be as inspiring as it's meant to be, but it's the thought that counts.

      Do Not Let Fear Stop You

      Buster Moon: Don't let fear stop you from doing the thing you love.

      In an attempt to inspire the singers, Buster encourages them to pursue their dreams, the things they love, regardless of any fears they may have. His optimism and positivity is contagious.

        A Singing Competition!

        Video: YouTube

        Buster Moon: My theater's been going through some pretty rough times lately. So, what do I do?
        Eddie Noodleman: Quit?
        Buster Moon: No, my next show is going to be, drumroll please, a singing competition! Just think, your neighbor, the-the-the grocery store manager, that-that-that-that chicken, right there. Real talent from real life! Everyone in the city gets a shot at being a star live on my stage!

        Buster knows that his city and his business are falling on hard times so he comes up with a big idea to turn things around. He seems pretty excited by it but, as evidenced in these Sing movie quotes, Eddie is not as optimistic.

          Buster Moon: How we doing with those flyers, Miss Crawly?

          When Buster's assistant Miss Crawly fails at carrying an excessively tall stack of flyers, they fly out the window and litter the city. But the good news is that numerous residents learn about the competition and are quite excited by it.
