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.

The real stars of the movie are the animators, who imbue even the overgrowth in Horton's jungle with a certain floppy Seuss-ishness.

Delightfully frivolous, but grounded in reality, this inventive animation based on the Dr Seuss story, will amuse, enchant and inspire one and all - no matter how big or small.

Much of the clever use of language in the Dr Seuss books is lost on the big screen, but there are still enough warm fuzzies to share.

Gorgeous and lovable holiday entertainment for the younger kids. This is just adorable.

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.

Charming, funny and great turns from a cast with no finger-wagging. But if you don’t like psychosis-inducing imagery, steer clear.

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.
