What Dr. Suse fan hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t read his childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s book Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hortin Hears a Who?Ã¢â‚¬Â
Very much like the book the movie begins in the jungle of Nool in the heat of the day in the cool of the pool where Hortin the elephant hears a cry coming from a dust speck. He catches the speck before it falls in the water and discovers it is actually a tiny planet inhabited by microscopic people called Ã¢â‚¬Å“WhosÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Because heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an elephant and has such big ears he is able to hear the mayor of Whoville speak and he promises him to find a safe place to put their tiny home. But that turns into a harder task than expected when the kangaroo who can not hear the whos decided imagining people who are not there and talking to them is crazy and shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be permitted in her jungle. Thus she rally up the jungle to destroy the dust speck and all the whos with it.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a witty, well humored, and clean movie. One that kids can watch again and again without the adults going crazy. Actually they might enjoy it too the first 3-4 times.
Horton Hears a Who! is the newest movie from Blue Sky, the creators of Ice Age. It's based on the book by Dr. Suess. Long story short, Horton hears a voice on a speck and learns that a city of Whos is on it. Horton then takes the responsibility to find a safe place to place the speck, so the Whos can live in peace. But almost every animal in the jungle Nool is determined to destroy that speck, which perches on a clover flower to keep safe, because Sour Kangeroo convinces them Horton is teaching the children that there are small people.
I'll begin by saying this is a positively positive review. Let me continue and explain why. First off, this movie is hilarious. But what would you expect from the people that brought you Ice Age? It has a variety of different brands of humor. Like random (that would be the character Katie, like her line "in my world, everybody's a pony, and they all eat rainbows, and poop butterflies!"), and slapstick humor. Lots of it. It's flowing at you non-stop. And when they sing "Can't Fight this Feeling" at the end, I was almost in tears. It's oddly beautiful. Second reason, the imagery is absolutely beautiful. Everything is colorful, vivid and detailed. You can tell they put a lot of work into each character. Because this movie's animated, Dr. Suess's world comes to life. The zany crooked looking trees and houses. Everything is just like the books. Third reason this movie is so fun, the characters. Every single character has a unique personality, and you fall in love with them when you first hear them speak. I don't know how they do it.
So go see this movie if you have a good sense of humor. I'd actually say it's the funniest animated movie I've ever seen. It's very enjoyable.
