Review Haiku Riddles!

A couple of days ago over at the Arts & Faith message board, for reasons I won’t recount, someone started a thread called “Review Haiku,” dedicated to three-line, 17-syllable movie reviews. Merriment ensued.

Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who! REVIEW

Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who! (2008)

One book can’t contain Horton’s dogged heroics! / His stoical pluck shows up all other stoics! / And it gets even better! I’m pleased to relate / That Horton’s the very best Blue Sky to date.

The Cat in the Hat REVIEW

The Cat in the Hat (2003)

Yes, the Cat now has mojo — yeah, baby, groovy! / Except he goes “OH yeah!” instead in this movie. / What’s next? Will the Sneetches get wild and crazy? / Will the Lorax get jiggy with Daisy-Head Mayzie?

How the Grinch Stole Christmas REVIEW

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

By the time that you read this short essay of ours / The Grinch will have made ten squintillion more dollars! / The people have spoken! The Grinch is a hit! / So who cares if some critic writes critical crit?


Scooby-Doo (2002)

Scooby Dooby Doo
And Shaggy too
You both look and sound great.
But Daphne, you’re too Buff
