The tolerance and loopy poetry of the beloved Dr. Seuss book have been nicely captured in this CGI adaptation by Blue Sky Studios, a subsidiary of Fox Animation. Jim Carrey supplies the voice of Horton the elephant, and Steve Carell is mayor of the microscopic Who-ville. Steve Martino and Pixar veteran Jimmy Hayward directed, and the gifted art director Thomas Cardone, a Disney alumnus, shows the influence of colleague Tim Burton with the Gothic-inflected architecture and the surly teen Jo-Jo, the smallest and most heroic Who of all (86 min.).
