Horton Hears a Who   April 25th, 2010

Originally Written 12/16/08

I rented Horton Hears a Who with a friend. That was a film I would have likely passed on, given the lame adaptations of Dr. Seuss stories in the recent past. However, a couple of friends recommended it to me, and I’m glad I checked it out.

It’s produced by Blue Sky, which I believe is the company which put out the Ice Age films, so the CGI, while not Pixar, is quite good and pretty too look at. There was some padding of the story with random antics of Horton and the Mayor of Whoville, but overall the film was quite good.

It kept to not only the look and feel of Dr. Seuess’ work, but also the spirit of the story, which previous films have lacked. This film was also missing the crude humor as well; there were a couple of quick, non-offensive sight gags and that was it. It’s definitely a fun watch and worth a rental.
