The elephant, the stars' names, the digital production, the critical buzz, and the product tie-ins -- with all this going on, the movie can't help but be huge.

Charming, funny, with great turns from a juicy cast and the added bonus of minimal finger-wagging. Just stay well clear if you're not in a good place for psychosis-inducing imagery.

Claims that the film truly captures Dr. Seuss' story and spirit are at the very least exaggerated.

Beautifully realised, entertainingly absurd and as true to the original as a feature-length expansion can be, this animated allegory gets the child in all of us to think big thoughts about small things.

Occasionally charming, frequently dull, and terrible just often enough to be dissatisfying more often than not.

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

Only scratches the surface of what makes the author's works resonate.

It's better than live action "Cat in the Hat," and "The Grinch," even if that's not saying much.

Delightfully frivolous, but grounded in reality, this inventive animation based on the Dr Seuss story, will amuse, enchant and inspire one and all - no matter how big or small.

None of the millions of dollars in cutting-edge animation and high-priced talent have managed to come up with anything quite approximating the charms and delights that Dr. Seuss was able to conjure up in just a handful of storybook pages.

The animation is beautiful and the story's nice message of tolerance booms across loud and clear.

Could do for intelligent design what An Inconvenient Truth did for global warming.

A bit too much on the frenetic side, the movie is nonetheless colorful and diverting.

Pure Seuss, with plenty of Flower Power to spare. Not to mention that when paying attention to all the possibilities of this planet and beyond, size indeed matters.
Diana Saenger

Although he's often over-the-top in some of his films, to his credit Carrey puts his ego aside in this movie and lets Horton be the star of the film just as he was written to be.

It amounts to making entertainment for adults by hijacking a story intended for kids...
