Two Thumbs WAY Up!

I had a date tonight. Yup, my 5 year old daughter and I went out for a "movie date". My mother in law tagged along with us. We braved the opening night for Dr Seuss' Horton Hears A Who. I must say that Jim Carrey blew me away in this one, folks even though I have never been a huge fan of Mr Carrey. He is the voice of the main character in this movie, a rather large and loving elephant named Horton. He does a great job at portraying such a loving character whose motto is, "I meant what I said and I said what I meant, an elephant's faithful, one hundred percent". I'm sure that most of you are familiar with Dr Seuss' book and know that Horton hears a voice from a dust speck floating through the jungle. Horton has to save the entire village of Whoville after being convinced by the mayor (voiced by Steve Carell) of it's impending doom without his help. It really is a great movie with a wonderful underlying motto, "A person's a person, no matter how small". We all enjoyed it and I would say it's worth a trip to a crowded theater. We also learned that next year there will be a new Ice Age Movie in Digital 3-D called Dawn of The Dinosaurs. I can't wait for this one! So, how did you spend your Friday night?
