Even without the story, the performances, and the music, this film would be a treat because it is so amazingly visual: the costumes, the make-up, the hair, and the sets. Clever, clever folks! Based on the Dr. Seuss story, the 2000 film is narrated by Anthony Hopkins and directed by Ron Howard.
No favorite scene but I’ve noticed more and more Seuss-flavored decorations creeping into my house every Christmas.
