Although Horton doesn't know it yet, that speck houses an entire city named Who-ville, inhabited by the microscopic Whos, led by the mayor. Despite being ridiculed and threatened by his neighbors, who think he has lost his mind, Horton is determined to save the particle...because "a person's a person, no matter how small."

  1. If I ran the circus, the gang that made the sturdy, witty, inventively animated Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! would get first dibs on any future movie productions of the Theodor Seuss Geisel canon.
  2. Finally! For the first time, Hollywood has made a whimsical, witty, feature-length version of Dr. Seuss that's neither overblown nor smutty nor emotionally hollow.
  3. A delight, brimming with colorful, elastic characters and bountiful wit.
  4. Listen closely: It's the sound of a million Who fans cheering.

    The real stars of the movie are the animators, who imbue even the overgrowth in Horton's jungle with a certain floppy Seuss-ishness.
  6. The tolerance and loopy poetry of the beloved book by Dr. Seuss have been nicely captured.
  7. 50
    There are aspects of “Horton,”... that are fresh and enjoyable, and bits that will gratify even a dogmatic and orthodox Seussian.

    The best in any Dr. Seuss installment. Second is "The Lorax", third is "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!", and dead last is... drum roll...The best in any Dr. Seuss installment. Second is "The Lorax", third is "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!", and dead last is... drum roll... "The Cat in the Hat." Something that's sweeter to imagine than the Lorax, actually has more feelings than How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and actually works unlike the Cat in the Hat. Expand
