In the eternal quest to create a decent movie out of a picture book (a fun debate in and of itself) the good people of 20th Century Fox have taken it upon themselves to recreate Horton Hears a Who with (wait for it) Jim Carrey and Steve Carrell. Carrey is Horton, Carrell a Who. Being of sound mind and body, I do not think this such a bad idea. Unlike the worst children's book adaptation hitherto known to man, we'll know if the CGIsters do well if they avoid the requisite scatalogical joke in the trailer. If there is just one elephant fart joke in the preview I'm lopping of the movie's head and declaring it a flop point blank. I do, however, like the fact that they already bought the rights to its "sequel" Horton Hatches the Egg. Anyone want to place bets on who does the voice of that lazy bird Mayzie. I'm thinking Angelina Jolie.
