Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris

The Lorax

By urkissesss
I thought it was an extremely good movie and a good way to remind us as well as teach children to think of the result of our actions. As a whole, I feel we, as a generation, take things for granted...

The Lorax Falls a bit too Short

What a fun movie!!!

By golden46
