Horton Hears A Who!, from its cast of creatures to the gorgeous Forest of Nool, is a great kids story. Bouncy, floppy, bursting at the seams with colour, this extremely cheerful and big hearted Dr. Seuss adaptation will be well loved.

Tries too hard to act cool around the other animated movies, which, for some reason, still swear by the sardonic, pop culture-laden, celebrity-voiced, sitcom-cadenced corporate-speak that keeps trying to pass as humor.

Hollywood seems to have finally learned its lesson: don't turn Dr Seuss books into live action movies. Horton takes the far more sensible route of computer animation, and perfectly captures the scrawny, scruffy, floppy elegance of Seuss' drawings.
