Absolutely loved it! Scenery was brilliant, and the take on the Once-ler was interesting. Good dialogue, and 'quotable quotes'-style lines. I strongly recommend watching the original again before seeing the new one (either rent it, or it's on YouTube in two parts; it's only 25 minutes long); it helps you appreciate what they kept, what they updated, and what they left out. The only part I didn't care for was the musical number around the middle; I think it was called "How could this possibly be bad." Everything else was awesome, witty, and poignant. Some in the packed theater actually left sniffling.

Glad I did not waste money on the 3-D version on this movie!!! It's pure propaganda wrapped up in legalistic bull! Thankful my grandchildren are too young to understand that its anything but a "stupid" cartoon!

Creative, imaginative, and good music! This is a fun movie to see for children and their parents, and tree-huggers. For the children of the 60s, it's Peter Max brought to life. Go and enjoy it!

Very cute movie for children....very Dr. Seuss! Best part was the singing fish and little bears.
Had a very good point about the importantance of saving the living things that God created that are all around us like amazing trees! Take the kids!

The movie was structured like a Broadway musical. Lively, vibrant animation, catchy songs and dancing, villans, heroes, in the visual spirit of Dr. Suess, but filled in with a storyline that is more relatable and joyful for a broader audience. Our kids enjoyed it and it brought me back to the Lorax's simple message..."UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."
