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.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
