Horton Hears a Who

We ended the day by going to the movies! It's been a long time since the whole family has gone together and it was fun. Although Reed did not last much past the previews in the seat, he watched and even laughed for quite a while. Summer movies will be an adventure this year!
The movie was cute - I loved the animation. It was done very well. I did think the middle dragged on a bit too long, but the beginning and end were great. My favorite parts were when it stayed very close to the book and they were actually reading Dr. Seuss' writings.
I have a hard time with many of these "children's" movies that contain some adult humor, such as Shrek (getting hit in the crotch, alluding to being gay, etc.). I thought that should have been left out and I don't believe Dr. Seuss would appreciate it in his story.
All in all it was a cute movie and enjoyable. The kids loved it and we will most likely purchase it when it comes out on DVD.

I am glad you had a good day! I wish we could have joined you for the movie. Reed looks so cute sitting next to his daddy enjoying the show. Happy Birthday!

I don't know if you knew the Leavitt's from the old Glendale 6th Ward but Tommy Leavitt work as an animator on that movie. It does look good. I can't believe you took Reed. You are braver than I.

Good family fun!

I think we're going on Saturday.
