The animation's ok. I didn't like Jim Carrey. I thought he was a distraction.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! is based on Dr. Seuss' beloved children's book. The book's wide fan base, coupled with the popularity of voice actors Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, should make most kids, especially those under 12, interested in seeing the film. Its message, like many of Seuss' tales, is one of inclusion and protecting those who can't protect themselves. There's some mild potty humor and name-calling ("boob," "idiot," and "stupid"). Vlad, the slightly scary bird, is funnier than he is disturbing.
