Let me start by saying my kids really liked this movie and, as a kids movie, it was entertaining. From an adult's perspective, however... thank goodness it is only 95 minutes long. It's a LONG time to get a lecture. The movie was incredibly preachy (an entire song on "I'm not that bad" anyone?). I consider myself on the liberal side and by the end of the movie I had a headache from rolling my eyes. "Wall-E" accomplished this message a few years ago and was much more entertaining while doing it. It also didn't use much of the book as a screenplay and instead made up its own plot. Pass on paying upwards of $10 to see this in the theater, it's not worth it. Wait for the DVD. And when you do... expect a lecture.

Lorax was a beautifully told story about saving our planet. It was child friendly and exciting. My grands and I loved the movie. Thanks for the message.

This move has a great message, is kid-friendly and my three year-old remained attentive throughout the entire screening. The movie had a couple of plot holes and inexplicable story points but, all-in-all, it was true to the book and I thought it had a good level of detail for tweens and under. I'm planning on purchasing this to have in my library. :-)

This movie was an awesome movie, my 3 year old has never sat straight through a movie and she sat through the whole movie. She loved it as did my 8,10 and 13 year old.
The moral of the movie was also very touching.
I would definitly go see this movie again.

Kids & I (6 & 7 yr boys) really enjoyed this movie. Has a great overall 'lesson' of preserving nature. A really well-done adaptation of the Lorax story. Would not have paid the cost for 3D, but definitely worth regular-movie price......nice to see on the big screen too.
