Horton Hears a Who
On Saturday I took Rosy to the movie Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who. It was an adorable movie, rated G. Rosy was all dressed up: skirt, white blouse, black boots, and a beautiful red coat with a black velvet collar (Yes, we're still wearing coats and mittens here.) We got pop corn and orange soda pop at the theater; I had a couple of bags of M & M's in my purse since I didn't want to pay $4 for them at the theater. What a rip-off the concessions are! Anyway, back to the movie. Horton is played by the voice of Jim Carrey, Carol Burnett's voice is used for the kangaroo (sorry, I can't recall her name in the movie). She plays the part of the negative, crabby animal in the jungle. She has a little kangaroo in her pouch that she says she is "home schooling." At one point, she tell the little kangaroo to "go to your room!" I thought it was hilarious. The voice of the mayor of "Who'sville" is done by Steve Carell.
There's light-heartedness, drama, suspense, and a very happy ending. I would love to take Josiah to see it in a few weeks if it's playing in Germany. I think he would really like it.
