My grandson was disappointed.
Charles Humphries
Whatever you think the meaning of the film is, at the end of the day, it is a great children's morality lesson about respecting beliefs and forgiveness.'

I don't care to waste space on my Kindle with how a movie was made.

The animation was nice, "Suessy", and the story was fun and engaging. I personally wouldn't watch it again unless a few years had gone by, but there are very very few movies I would do that with...that's what my five stars are for.

Stories are better appreciated in their context, although I personally don't like to know much about the plot development before I watch a film (I'm the kind of guy that doesn't watch previews because I want to experience the movie in the way it was meant to be told). The book was written in 1954, and according to one analysis, 'it is...an allegory on the occupation of Japan by allied forces post WWII and how Japan needed a voice...this parallels the current situation in Iraq; however, the film doesn't allude to this specifically. Whatever you think the meaning of the film is, at the end of the day, it is a great children's morality lesson about respecting beliefs and forgiveness.' (Conor Flynn)

Some technical facts if it helps you make a decision:
Voice cast includes: Jim Carrey, Steve Carell, Carol Burnett, Will Arnett, Seth Rogen...

Amazon instant video support team requested me to watch this so we could test the network settings for streaming video. With Adobe Flash Player it played well, even with the connection being shared by the chat window. Microsoft Silverlight Player, on the other hand 'forgets' it's installed on the same machine every month when Windows updates patches the operating system. Dear Microsoft, please read the monthly code you're publishing to make sure it's updating Silverlight. Failure to do this undermines consumer confidence in the corporate commitment to DRM maintenance.

Any 'Who', the video details the creative process of a scene from the movie. It's comparable with a few other special feature videos on some of my DVDs. It's not an interview with a celebrity to discover their opinions about something irrelevant. Similarly impressive videos, describing the creative process would include:

The animation process and voice overs of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty"
The martial arts choreography of "The Matrix"
Tim Burton's deployment of CG (computer generated) characters in "Alice in Wonderland"
Peter Jackson's creation of the model fortress of "Helms Deep" from "The Two Towers."

And while I'm making wishes, how about a Peter Jackson and Tim Burton collaboration for a mini-series of Neil Gaiman's "American Gods", for adults.

Segment (1) "Birth of Shadow" could introduce the historical elements underpinning his Native American Heritage, the American holy places, and the arrival of Mr. Wednesday and some other immigrant "in-our-own-image" demi-gods. This could dangle the harsh betrayal of Shadow and his introduction to Loki in it's conclusion. Also it should establish the grifter nature of our American Woden.

Not even worth downloading. Much too short. Children do not even get it. My granddaughter thought it was a commercial.

I love this mini movie. Doctor Seuss is a favorite of mine. Well, we do recommend it to you. This is a free one. Catch the movie on your TV because it is not in the cinema any more...
