As an avid lover of cartoons and children's movies, I was very excited to see the Lorax on opening weekend! Unfortunately it was torturous from the opening scene, where the entire town started singing about how everything is made of plastic and they destroy the environment and LIKE it that way. Everything was just downhill from there...
Zac Efron's character sounded as if the writers let him ad lib his entire script, making this little boy who just wants to find a tree, sound like a total self-absorbed, arrogant TOOL.
Also, do we all remember the commercials? The Lorax spoke in verse, did he not? Oh, but not in the movie! Nothing rhymed, there was no magic to the words of he who speaks for the trees, nay, he was also lacking wit and charm in his speech. The fact that Dr. Seuss's name was even attached to this movie was preposterous!
THIS MOVIE MADE ME FEEL GUILTY TO BE HUMAN.
It is entirely environmental propaganda, directed towards and shoved down the throats of our children.

The movie was GREAT! It had a lot of great comedy and fun songs. Both my 7 year old and 2 year old loved it. It was exactly the perfect length, and it kept our attention. I think we will probably see it in theaters again, and we will definitley buy it on DVD / Blue Ray.

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."
