Twentieth Century Fox Animation’s take on “Horton Hears a Who!” is easily the best feature-length film made from a Dr. Seuss story. But with predecessors like “The Cat in the Hat” (2003) and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (2000), a statement like that doesn’t qualify as praise.
The forerunners of “Horton” were so bad that being better doesn’t mean much. So, it’s good news that “Horton” is more than better, it’s halfway decent. Faint praise, yes, but at least this film seems to appreciate Seuss’ wonderful literary legacy.
