Starring Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, Horton Hears a Who! is the latest Dr. Suess tale to hit the big screen. Check out Kidzworld's review.

The Doctor is In

Following the previous big screen releases of Dr. Suess classics The Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas comes the fully CGI animated version of Horton Hears a Who! With an all-star comic cast, Horton Hears a Who! is guaranteed to be one of the biggest hits of the year that viewers of any age will enjoy.

I See Little People

One day Horton (Jim Carrey) the Elephant hears a cry for help coming from a tiny speck of dust. It turns out that the voice is the Mayor of Whoville (Steve Carrell) and the speck of dust is actually home to a whole civilization, the Whos, and the city they live in, Whoville. Being a kind and faithful elephant, Horton catches the speck of dust in a clover and then carries it around in his trunk to protect the Whos from danger.

Who's Bad?

The rest of the animals in the Jungle of Nool are skeptical of Horton's story, especially Sour Kangaroo. She joins forces with bad guys like Vlad Vladikoff, a wanna-be evil eagle, and Yummo and his gang of monkeys to get the clover away from Horton by any means possible. Can Horton, with a little help from his friends and the Whos, prove that it's okay to believe in and stand up for something super small?

The Bottom Line

From 20th Century Fox and the same people who made Ice Age, Horton Hears a Who! takes advantage of some amazing comic actors to bring one of Dr. Suess' most beloved tales to life. The animation is incredible, the action is fast-paced, and the jungle of Nool and Whoville really steal the show. The flick even has some adult humor and a few inside jokes to entertain parents while their kids are laughing like crazy. The Doc would be proud.
