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.

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! :)

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!

A cute rendition of the ever- popular Dr. Seuss book, The Lorax. This movie adaptation takes you behind the reason the young boy travels to the Once-ler (something Dr. Seuss wanted us to make up for our own individual interpretation). The movie also adds in a new character that sells air to everyone, showing a blatant connection to today's world if you missed the inferences you were supposed to make. The movie was cute, fun, and left a good message for kids, teens, and adults to digest. Danny DeVito made the Lorax come alive with excitement and determination. Bright colors, Seuss inspired drawings, and an action packed plot kept tis movie fast paced and exciting for the little ones (and older ones) in the theatre. What a great movie for all to see to not only learn about a deeper meaningful purpose, but to be entertained as well.
