Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! 
Review - Horton Hears a Who! (2008)
3.5/4 stars

In 1954, Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, published a short book about an elephant who could hear voices from a speck of dust, but nobody else would believe him. The elephant stood firm and stated that “an elephant's faithful, one hundred percent.” He stood by what he thought was right and triumphed over impossible odds. Luckily, Jim Carrey did the same with the movie adaptation of said book.

“Horton Hears a Who!” was not expected to be as good as it turned out to be. Jim Carrey was back after having played The Grinch eight years earlier, and neither that movie nor “The Cat in the Hat” are exactly masterpieces. So another adaptation was bound to fail with critics. Of course, this didn't happen, and it won't happen here either.

I will admit that I was skeptical when I first heard that Jim Carrey was playing Horton, but it turned out to be a great casting move, as well as casting Steve Carell as the Mayor of Whoville. They both do great jobs bringing their characters to life. The CGI and the music also both work well in telling the story, which is much higher quality than is to be expected from 20th Century Fox after “Ice Age.” The only real problem I have with the film is that once again Steve Carell needed his movie to end with a completely useless musical number. Why he keeps doing this, I don't think I'll ever know, but I'm really sick of it.

“Horton” is great for all ages, and is bound to entertain to some extent. It's got a great story, excellent scenery, and quirky characters. Especially Katie. She scares the heck outta me.

Acting: 8/10
Writing: 8/10
Video/Editing: 10/10
Audio/Music: 9/10
Entertainment: 9/10

Final Score: 8.8/10
