Buster is initially aided by his slacker friend Eddie John C. The film was released on December 21, A teaser can be found here. A sequel has been announced, pending release on December 25, Not to be confused with Singa live-action short film also released in This movie features the following tropes: Acquired Error at the Printer: The flooding and collapse of the theatre becomes this when you remember that Meena, Rosita, and Johnny all had family members seen on screen and they came very close to drowning or being crushed in the crumbling building.
Rosita gets one after the above example. She returns home after the flood to find her Rube Goldberg Device has malfunctioned and left her entire family hanging by clothesline pins very high above the ground.
All There in the Script: The lady mouse Mike tries to woo is named Nancy in the screenplay. Alone Among the Couples: Miss Crawley in the short Love at First Sight. Gunter, the pig who Buster pairs up with Rosita, hogs the spotlight and is the largest ham ever.
Johnny himself averts this, being a Gentle Giant. Of course, Mike the rodent is going to be singing Rat Pack songs. And he manages in several places to terrify Meena, despite her being exponentially bigger.
Rosita goes to great lengths to keep her house clean and orderly, which is in line with how pigs act in real life. On the other hand, her workaholic husband Norman and her 25 kids can be real slobs like stereotypical pigs. Justified in the latter case since they are pretty young kids.
A hovering helicopter would create a downdraft, not an updraft. During the climax, as Rosita is swarmed by her piglets after her performance, Norman bolts onstage to give her a Big Damn Kiss.
Johnny and his father prove this is the case. Bears Are Bad News: Mike pisses off a trio of Russian gangster bears in a club after they catch him cheating in a game of cards. They end up serving as an Arc Villain for his subplot and cause a lot of trouble for Moon. The red pandas are actually speaking Japanese.
Buster later tries to talk to them in their language, but gets slapped for his efforts.
After Johnny misses a heist due to having to practice for the show and inadvertently causes Marcus to be arrested, Marcus dismisses Johnny as a failure and a disappointment. He has a change of heart though, when he sees Johnny performing on the broadcast of the talent show, and realizes that Johnny has a natural talent and passion for music.
Regretting the cruel words he said to Johnny earlier, Marcus breaks out of prison and shows up at the theater to reconcile with his son, apologizing and telling Johnny how proud he is of his son. The Roc supermarket Rosita shops at is a play on the Giant Eagle supermarket chain.
Some of the auditionees, such as the bunnies, Ray the snail, and Richard the buffalo, return to watch, cheer and sing along during the show at the end.
Also, Pete the camel is in the group photo along with the other contestants at the Grand Re-Opening of the theater. After Ash catches Lance with another singer and kicks them out, the other girl tries to go back in to get her sunglasses, but is stopped by Ash slamming the door.
Later on, when she performs her song "Set It All Free", she puts on those very sunglasses. She also makes some killer alterations to the pop princess dress Buster keeps trying to push on her.
In their introductory scene, Ash and Lance are turned down for a gig because their punk-rock music is inappropriate for the venue a tiki bar. Later on, after their breakup, Ash sees Lance and Becky performing at the very same venue.For the first time in school history, the Batavia Blue Devils are seeking a Class B Championship in varsity football.
