An awesome movie is an awesome movie, no matter how G-rated

I've just come back from Horton Hears a Who.

What a BRILLIANT film. I absolutely loved it. And spent half of it laughing out loud, which I rarely do even with films that amuse me. The anime parody alone was worth the ticket, and that's not even halfway into the film.

Also, to my gratified surprise, movie critic Gina Carbone was right about the resemblance to the Intelligent Design debate. From now on I shall always think of Richard Dawkins as a purple kangaroo, and my life will be considerably enriched.

* Yes, I am fully aware that this was not Theodor Geisel a.k.a. Dr. Seuss's intent when writing the book, any more than it was his intent to support the pro-life movement. Nevertheless, the parallels are irresistibly there.
