Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!

Rated G 88 minutes 2008

The tolerance and loopy poetry of the beloved book by Dr. Seuss have been nicely captured in this CGI adaptation by Blue Sky Studios, a subsidiary of Fox Animation. Jim Carrey supplies the voice of Horton the elephant, and Steve Carell is mayor of the microscopic Whoville. Steve Martino and Pixar veteran Jimmy Hayward directed, and the gifted art director Thomas Cardone, a Disney alumnus who worked on Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, shows the influence of his colleague with the Gothic-inflected architecture and surly teen JoJo, the smallest and most heroic Who of all. G, 86 min.
