"Horton Hears a Who!" stays true to feeling, moral of story

-A A +A
By Quninn McCulloch

My Score: 3.5/5 kernelsHorton, voiced by Jim Carrey, is a somewhat happy-go-lucky elephant living in a lush jungle called Nool. Typically, life for Horton and the other animals of Nool is fairly ordinary, that is until a little speck goes flying by the ears of the elephant. Because of Horton’s incredible hearing he is able to hear faint voices from creatures that live on a microscopic world, called Who-Ville, within the speck.Upon the little, impeccable world of the speck lives a whole civilization of creatures that call themselves Whos. This civilization is complete with a Mayor Ned O’Melley, voiced by Steve Carell, who has 96 children, and an entire society that builds houses, rides bikes and hosts annual festivals. Unfortunately, after making contact with Horton, the mayor realizes that the chipper world upon which all the Whos live is actually vulnerable to the outside world, teeter-tottering on the brink of destruction at any time. The other animals in Nool are unable to hear the voices from the speck that Horton keeps talking about, and despite the constant harassment from everyone in the jungle, Horton makes it his mission to protect the inhabitants of the little world and deliver them to a safe haven, where they can live happily ever after.Since its release, this movie has received some criticism that the film version isn’t true to the original Dr.
