Okay, I know it's not YA, but I just watched this movie and it was so much fun!
I was a bit worried, seeing how the more recent Seuss remakes (Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas) weren't much fun, but I was happily surprised. Casting was perfect, especially Caroll Burnett. Although, little Katie was a bit creepy. And while it follows the book, this version is not afraid to elaborate a bit.
My favorite things about this movie were the allusions to other Seuss works throughout, the little emo son, and the anime/kung fu episode. I completely cracked up during the eighties music singalong!
If you need a laugh and love Seuss books, GO and see this movie. I am so showing it at the branch when it comes out on DVD.
