Furthering my status as movie nerd, I also have a favorite movie critic. I will do anything A.O. Scott tells me to. He would probably be weirded out by how much I bring his opinions up at the dinner table.
So this morning, reading the New York Times in my office, I glanced at the one sentence teaser of his review for Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who:
"What distinguishes “Horton Hears a Who!” from the other recent Dr. Seuss film adaptations is that it is not one of the worst movies ever made."
This guy gets it.
You can read the rest of the review here.
