Horton Hears a Who! (2008)

Horton Hears a Who is one of my favorite animated films, it's truly
hilarious and a lot of fun.

Steve Carell and Jim Carey lead in the film and both do fantastic. Jim
Carrey is probably at one of his bests, he gives a Horton a personality
that I don't think anyone else could come close to. All the supporting
cat does great as well, Carol Burnett, Seth Rogen, Amy Poehler, Isla
Fisher and so on. My personal favorite character is Vlad played by Will
Arnett, doesn't have the biggest role but its important and all of his
scenes are hilarious.

The animation is great, its very cartoonish but very detailed. I
haven't read the book so I'm not sure how it compares but I can't
imagine it letting fans of the book down. It does seem to have an
undertone of religion and other things like that but I don't think its
meant to be preachy like some might say, just watch it for what it is,
don't read into it.

My only complaint about the film is when they all start singing at the
end. It might be because I don't like the song but I think it was to
pressured, like they were trying to hard to end it fun and light
hearted so they had them sing. It in no way ruined the movie I just
wish they had done it a little different.

I suggest this film to anyone, both young and old. It didn't seem to be
that popular but I think it should have been and I think most people
who watch it will really enjoy it.

9/10

I forgot that The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T was his work, The Grinch was
really good fun, and The Cat in the Hat was terrible, so I was looking
forward to seeing this Dr. Seuss story brought to life. Basically in
the jungle of Nool lives Horton the elephant (Jim Carrey), and when a
speck of dust goes past him he is sure he can hear a voice coming from
it, so he catches it in a clover. Even though he can't see anyone, he
can definitely hear someone, and does everything he can to keep it
safe, and of course he tries contacting whoever the voice is. On the
speck is the microscopic city of Whoville where the Whos live, and the
voice Horton is hearing is that of the Mayor (Steve Carell), who has a
loving wife Sally O'Malley (Amy Poehler), ninety-six daughters, and one
quiet son JoJo. Horton does get in touch with the Mayor, and he proves
that the Whos are indeed living on a tiny speck, that is in danger of
being destroyed by many jungle threats, so Horton promises he will find
a safe place for it. Horton knows a mountain where no animals venture,
and a very stable flower grows that the speck can rest on, but the
journey to get there is full of perils. The journey is made more
difficult by the fact that the nasty Kangaroo (Carol Burnett) who
believes Horton is making his speck story up, and that his overactive
imagination is bad for the children of Nool. She is determined to do
everything to stop Horton, get rid of the clover and speck, and prove
that nothing exists unless you can see, hear or feel it. The Mayor
inside Whoville meanwhile is trying to prove to everyone that their
world is inside a tiny speck, there is a giant elephant looking over
them, and that they could be in danger. After a near loss of the clover
and the Mayor having no luck, Horton encourages Whoville to make as
much noise to prove they exist, while Kangaroo makes everyone tie him
down. In the end, Whoville it proved an existing world on the speck by
all the large animals hearing their voices, Kangaroo feels a fool but
Horton forgives her, and the speck is taken to it's rightful place.
Also starring Dan Fogler as Councilman / Yummo Wickersham, Seth Rogen
as Morton, My Name Is Earl's Jaime Pressly as Mrs. Quilligan, Will
Arnett as Vlad, Isla Fisher as Dr. Mary Lou Larue, Jonah Hill as Tommy,
Charles Osgood as Narrator, Jesse McCartney as Jojo, Selena Gomez as
Helga and Joe Pasquale as The Dentist. Carrey gives a both a nice
subtle and of course cheeky comedic approach to the lead character,
Carell does well as the nervous character, the animation effects are
colourful, and it is a simple story, a likable animated adventure. Very
good!
