Horton Hears a Who is an absolutely genius book, and the movie really does it justice – it is extremely funny and well made. Amazon have marked the DVD down from the usual retail price of £19.99 to a superb £2.99 including free delivery – bargain!
The movie is based on the 1954 children’s book by Dr. Seuss (I love his books, I do) and stars Jim Carrey as the sharp-eared Horton. Carrey does a fantastic job of bringing Horton to life and you are guaranteed to be smiling by the end of the show.
Whoville rests inside a speck and Horton discovers this speck in the jungle of Nool. He takes care of it and looks for a place to put it so that it will be safe from the rest of the world. Steve Carell plays the bewildered mayor of Whoville, Seth Rogan plays his mate, Morton, and Carol Burnett is the deranged and uptight kangaroo.
It’s funny, poignant and brilliant, and now it’s also dead cheap.
