Third Time's a Charm

Finally, an adaptation of Dr. Seuss that sticks to the story the way it was written. The extra time was made up in detail instead of new scenes. Jim Carey plays the role of Horton with just enough of his standard crazyness to believable and enjoyable. Carol Burnett as the Sour Kangaroo adds just enough fright to keep the story moving.
