The Lorax

Dr. Seuss must be spinning in his grave. Shameful abuse of a really important message. The animation of some of the forest creatures was very good, however the Once-ler and most of the town folk were never part of Dr. Seuss' creation. I believe he would be offended at the distorted rendition of his story. The message "save our forests" took a back seat to the poltical propaganda cartoon that replaced Dr. Seuss' story first published in 1971, some 41 years ago. Save your money and read the book at your local library. Don't waste your time.

Went to see Lorax with two kids - 8 & 12. Was expecting a 2nd level to the movie, but did not find it. Script is good, but no surprises. Very lenghty parts. Interpretation is flat.

Cute movie with a good message

This Dr. Suess story has always been a favorite of mine, and the producer did a great job capturing the essence of its message in this movie. The animation was eye popping and the songs incorporated in the movie were cute. My two year old sat through the entire movie and was mezmerized! haha One piece of advice- the movie theater out here was PACKED and sold out 20 minutes before the showing, so buy the tickets on here (fee free with their promotion!) and come 30 minutes early so you don't have to sit in the 2nd row! :)

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.

NOT what I was expecting!! Complete "green" propaganda!!!

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.
