Did any of you take your kids to see Horton Hears a Who? My husband took our four-year-old Sunday and they loved it. We bought the Dr. Seuss book a few weeks ago and have been reading it just about everyday. My son absolutely loves going to the movies. He has been looking forward to his day out with daddy for weeks.
CNN said we're not the only family who went to see the movie this weekend. The title of their story is "Horton hears cha-ching at the box office." It made $45.1 million dollars, the best opening so far this year.
My husband said, " It was funny. There were three comic legends: Carol Burnett, Jim Carrey, and Steve Carell. Carol Burnett was the bad person, the kangaroo. (Our son) said the kangaroo was mean, of course. It wasn't over the top. I thought it was pretty true to the story. For reading the story 100 million times, I was still amused by the movie. "
He said a one and half year old was leaving the theater very slowly and everyone was waiting for him. A little kid said, "It's alright. A persons a person, no matter how small." (How cute is that?)
My husband said, "I would give it three and half out of four stars. It wasn't as good as say, Hoosiers." (Hah!)
Did any of you see it? What did you think?
