The kids loved this one. A lot of the humor is geared toward a young audience, but I LOLed at several points during this version of "Horton". Like most of the recent Seuss adaptations, this movie follows the same themes intended by the author of the book. So be prepared to think about faith, belief, and the value of people. I was totally comfortable with my 2-year-old watching this. There are a couple of parts that may be a little scary, but for the most part this is squeaky clean.January 22nd, 2013 · Details
So whether viewers simply sit back and enjoy the story or look for deeper meanings in the message, Horton Hears a Who! is a creative and clever reminder that people's perspective can be easily limited if they only believe what they see, hear and feel. Still, the most admirable aspect of this playful pachyderm is the kind and gentle way in which he forgives the faults of others. Not always an easy thing to do when you have a memory like an elephant.Click here to read full reviewFebruary 29th, 2016 · Details
