Randomly I decided to take the girls to the movies. I didn’t even know what was playing but had heard a movie that started with Horton was out. That’s how much I knew about it. No clue it was Jim Carrey or Steve Carell, probably my two favorite comedic actors. Within about an hour, we had picked up Heather and were off.
I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the story of the movie, the themes woven in, the comedy and even the “bad guy” is a clumsy bird that is funny. It’s a clean, family-friendly movie that I think is appealing to all ages. The only little thing I didn’t like is the kid who stood up to his mom at the end. I get that she was in the wrong but it was almost the glory-moment and it was all about defying a parent. A little border-line there. Other than that, there really wasn’t anything to complain about.
One funny thing that happened is at the end when all the people were chanting, the little girl behind us in the theater said, “Everybody chant! We are here! We are here!” It was pretty cute. She was serious.
Lexi clapped at the end and Emma was stuck like glue to the screen the whole time. I think they both really enjoyed it. And I did too.
