An imaginative elephant named Horton (Jim Carrey) hears a faint cry for help coming from a tiny speck of dust floating through the air. Although Horton doesn't know it yet, that speck houses an entire city named Who-ville, inhabited by the microscopic Whos, led by the Mayor (Steve Carell).

Despite being ridiculed and threatened by his neighbors who think he has lost his mind, Horton is determined to save the particle... because "a person's a person no matter how small."

  • 5 stars "Horton Hears a Who is the joyous and kindhearted laughter with Horton the generous elephant on his mission of mercy for the small people of the city! Horton the Elephant and Mayor Ned McDodd establish the loving connection based on trust and the spiritual practice of listening while they cannot see each other and are in completely different and strange worlds! You would want to take the side of many small beings and make sure that they achieve their share of happiness, light, and love after playing through this movie with Horton!"
