Horton Say Wha????

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that Horton Here's A Who is not going to be a very good movie going experience if you're over the age of 10. I could be wrong but I follow this simple equation and it has yet to fail me.

Jim Carrey/Mike Meyers + Anything related to Dr. Seuss = Suck

Whenever the names in the movie are bigger than Dr. Seuss, then we're all in a lot of trouble. Dr. Seuss does not need big stars and big names. He just needs a good visionary to bring his work to life. Instead of dropping money on movie tickets, why not rent The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. It does the Dr. Seuss name proud and is entertainment worthy of both children and adults.

As I child I saw this movie on TV. But I was too young to remember it so I just thought I had had a dream about the exact same story.
Then, one day, when I was 14, it was on TV and I realized, "NO! It WASN'T a dream! Oh, glory be, O Hosanna!"
It is one of the treasured memories of my youth, that rediscovery, and one of the greatest movies I have ever seen.

It does feel like a movie that might be part of a dream, or a really bad fever.
