    It was a pretty entertaining movie, but completely untrue to the book. There's nothing I hate more than when these adaptions make up lines from some non-existent Dr. Seuss book. They could've stayed true to the original story but chose to improvise and make everything a horrible mess, and for that I give this movie a big, fat 0.

  1. A delight, brimming with colorful, elastic characters and bountiful wit.

    The real stars of the movie are the animators, who imbue even the overgrowth in Horton's jungle with a certain floppy Seuss-ishness.

    Horton Hears a Who! has blessedly been conceived and executed in reverence to Seuss's story, padding out the original narrative with some meaningful new ideas and casting a mercifully muzzled Jim Carrey as the titular beast.
