      The atheist joke was funny but I don’t get it.

    • UnorthodoxRomance says:

      Channel Awesome I really liked this movie. The Kill Bill anime reference and the Kissinger imitation made my dad burst out in laughter when he saw it on a flight. To me, if a movie does THAT – no matter how critics perceive it – it’s at least worth watching.

      Horton Hears a Who on Blu-Ray (Amazon.com): $11.79

      Watching your dad laugh so hard he couldn’t breathe at “that scene”: Priceless

      Also I know women who have had lots of children (like my former neighbor), and they look just fine. Okay, maybe they don’t have 97 kids, but still, they’re happily married and love all of their 6 or 7 kids.

    • AlainShadowz says:

      Out of the modern Dr. Seuss films. I enjoyed The Grinch. However, I’d gladly watch the original animated How the Grinch Stole Christmas over any of the the newer films.

  2. Rachel Johnson says:

    “As an atheist I am offended by that.” That’s made me laugh way too hard.

  3. Sonicfalcon16 says:

    As someone who watches anime you know where I don’t want to see anime? In dr.Suess movie adaptations

    • DemonicRemption says:


      As a fellow anime viewer I don’t blame you. Though that was a cheap cash grab at anime’s popularity that occurred when this was made…

  4. jmantime says:

    *Question* – when the flower dies do the who’s die too ?
    ..or do we just ignore that reality ?……

  5. McTayDr says:

    I gotta say while I adore both Tamara and Malcolm in the newer reviews, these one-off solo reviews really bring me back to the old days. You could even go as far to say they make me nostalgic!

  6. Randomly Ryan says:

    Horton hears a who is a diamond in the rough, whos also stuck between a rock and a hard place.

  7. purplekitty says:

    Bill! It’s always great to see Bill! Such good times are had!

  8. Jose peña says:

    So you’re telling me that this movie has a character name Jojo and also an anime reference, and yet there not correlated? how bizarre.

  9. God Himself says:

    In order for Jojo to save his CRAZY NOISY BIZARRE TOWN from becoming a BLOODY STREAM, he had to STAND PROUD and make the other animals hear him. After his efforts, the town only had GREAT DAYS.

  10. Paladan says:

    I would say I’m glad Bill was in this episode but really, he’s been in all of them giving out incredible words of advice and comfort to us and the critic. I don’t know why people don’t see him that much. All you gotta do is watch from beginning to end

  11. elizabethashley42 says:

    This movie hit me in the right place at the right time and I unironically adore it, dated references, story flaws, and all.

    About the scene with the kangaroo and Vlad, though – she very much was not acting out of character because she very much was not actually considering giving up her child. *Obviously.* The kangaroo character was very good at manipulation and was pretending to consider Vlad’s demand for the vulture’s benefit, while in reality she was contemplating the best method to get Vlad to do what SHE wanted for nothing. I’m not really sure how you could have missed that.

    Final note: John Powell’s original score for this movie is quite possibly my favorite soundtrack of all time.

    • MommaMole says:

      To be honest I was shocked he mentioned that scene but neglected her telling people to stop her child so she could still get the flower in the molten uhh… whatever the stuff in the pot was I’ve forgotten now.

    • ja52ng74 says:

      Beezelnut oil

    • Miquel Escribano Ivars says:

      Also I think it’s pretty well established that Vlad ruthlessness is at least partially a bravado. He lost his cool during the negotiation almost inmediatelly after Kangaroo mentioned hiring the Wickersham Brothers and although he did dispose of the flower with the speck by dropping it from a great height that was ultimatelly a lot less effective than straight up eating it as he claimed he would do.

    • Cameron Metrejean says:

      elizabethashley42 I totally agree. I saw it at a time when I was getting back into animation and it remained one of the funniest movies to me for a while.

    • Ghoste Writer says:

      Yeah I thought it was odd he didn’t pick up on that. Her face and tone should’ve been a clue.

      As for the vulture wanting the kid though; thinking it over, yeah, I’m not sure why he asked that either. I guess just to seem EEEVIL and menacing, and probably wouldn’t have accepted him anyway. I guess. I dunno; I still love this film though. It’s cute fun, even though the anime scene was a bit much, even being an anime fan.

  12. Logan Nicholas says:

    Oddly enough, even though I saw this movie, I don’t remember the anime references.

  13. Boogerbry Bry says:

    Mr. Critic,

    In this message I hope to transfer the knowledge that Woody Woodpecker has received a live action adaptation. All I know is that it came out in 2017 and it’s on netflix. I humbly ask you for a first viewing and depending on its Quality a full on review.

  14. Robyn says:

    Dude, this movie is so meh, it didn’t even get a skit.

  15. ArpholomuleNutt says:

    A new movie just came out, I saw it at my local Wal-Mart, Woody Woodpecker.
    Because of course.

    It looks like Yogi Bear…. but shittier.
    I know.

    • ADP1998 says:

      E.O.W. I thought studios finally got the hint that nobody likes these live action/CGI adaptations but I guess I was wrong. “Peter Rabbit” looks like it will be a piece of shit.

      EDIT: There is going to be one for Woody too? It’s probably going to suck.

    • Aaron Kordish says:

      ADP1998 The Woody Woodpecker one is already out. It went straight to DVD without anybody knowing… Or caring. I just learned about that RIGHT NOW.

    • ArpholomuleNutt says:

      ADP1998 I was talking about how it exists.
      If I wanted, I could buy it at Wal-Mart right now. I don’t want to though… because it looks like trash. I wish Canadian Netflix had it so I could see it for free.

    • SonofaChaosGod says:

      ArpholomuleNutt It was actually made in Brazil. That DVD is probably an English dub. I saw the trailer last year. It looks batshit insane, just like Woody Woodpecker. The fact that it was made in Brazil is probably why you never heard of it.

    • Donkarasu-96 says:

      SonofaChaosGod Not surprising. Woody Woodpecker is very popular in Brazil, that they made that movie and ran a theatrical release just for them.

  17. BlackGreninja1 says:

    The last time nostalgia critic had a review video that was less than 15 mins, Bob was still building an army

  18. Ryan Hartwell says:

    The anime references are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO painful!

    • DemonicRemption says:

      +Ryan Hartwell

      That’s because that’s not a reference, but a cheap cash-grab at anime’s popularity that occurred when this came out… If it were a genuine reference it would be cool and not painful, because it hurt me too…

    • TheRed2TailsFox says:

      Anime is painful

  19. Alejandro Silva says:

    Horton Hears a Who is my least favorite JoJo part
