If you're looking for a very "watchable" family movie "The Lorax" is a good choice. My 13 year old
daughter and my 10 year old son were both entertained. My wife and I found it funny but very predictable... and this was one of the very few Dr. Seuss books we didn't read. It was a little heavy on the "let's bash big business" theme. If you find left wing, environmental messages annoying (especially when you're paying $80 for 80 minutes of family entertainment), then you may want to avoid this movie. I'm all for protecting the environment, but I don't think we should assume that all businesses are essentially counter to that effort. Back to the movie... the CGI is great. The forest is dream-like and the city is comically plastic and contrived. Effron, Devito, and Swift do a very nice job on the voicing. All of the movie's action scenes are shot in a way where you feel like you're in a video game. I'm sure you can plunk down another $60 and play The Lorax game on your PSP/XBox.
