I Will Make Monkeys Of These Monkeys!

My movie review on: 

Horton Hears a Who is a fantastic, heart-warming and funny animated film about an imaginative elephant named Horton who suddenly hears a cry for help from a speck. At this point, he believes, despite ridicule from the others, that there is life on this speck and puts it safely on a clover. Being the only person able to hear the speck, it turns out there is a whole other little world unrecognized and the Mayor of Whoville needs Horton's help. Destruction is near if Horton cannot surpass all the obstacles that come his way to find a safe place for all of the Whos. 

I was very impressed with the animation and story from the book by Dr. Seuss. Excellent cast with Jim Carrey, Steve Carell, Will Arnett, Seth Rogan and more. I enjoyed all the characters, especially the maniacal monkeys launching bananas, Vlad the overly dramatic buzzard as well as the random strangeness of Katie, the baby yak! 

One of the best parts had to be the collaboration of all the people in WhoVille and all the animals in the The Jungle of Nool, singing REO Speedwagon's hit: Can't Fight This Feeling.

Horton Hears a Who definitely deserves a woo-hoo!!
