Star Rating: ***
“Horton Hears a Who” is a good family movie with lots of comedy. If you have read Dr. Seuss’s original book, then you will be amazed about the expansion of a kid’s book to a two hour CGI movie. It features the original characters of Horton, the Mayor and the kangaroo, along with new characters such as Morton, the 96 daughters and the notorious Katie. You will also see the return of the Wickersham Brothers and Jojo, but this time Jojo has a slightly different role. The concept of the plot is the same, with Horton finding a flower and the other animals thinking he’s bonkers.
The movie is a heartwarming one about Horton’s feelings and the journey for the flower’s safety. You will see a connection between the Mayor’s and Horton’s characteristics. Also, there is a good amount of comedy that is sure to make you crack up. Overall, this movie is good in feelings and comedy. I’m give it a rating of 3 out of 5 stars.
