Typical "happly ever after" movie. My son and daughter-in-law took two of my great-grandkids to the show, and I joined them. All of us throughly enjoyed it and the little ones didn't make a peep during the show.

The family and I went and saw this movie and really enjoyed the story. There are lots of funny scenes, that my 6 year old laughed at. My husband and I both got a chuckle too. All in all, it was a great family outing!!

Even if you are not a fan of Dr. Seuss, I think you will love the Lorax. The characters are adorable and the additions to the story help it flow on screen. The only disappointment was it doesn't use the names for the species the Once-ler meets: the brown Bar-ba-loots, the Swome-swans, and humming fish. Despite that, each group was beautifully depicted and the color rich scenes make you feel like you are in the book. We loved this movie and plan to see it again as well as buy it once it is available on DVD. Kids or not, go see this movie!

I was very excited to bring my 3 year old granddaughter to see this movie, and, to see it myself. We were both disappointed. The movie had a very dark undertone to it and, despite the happy ending, did not leave you with a happy feeling. I was expecting a movie similar to Horton Hears a Who - it was NOT that. My granddaughter was frightened and sad through most of the movie and asked to go home. This is out of characte for her. She eventually sat on my lap but did not really enjoy watching this movie. I would not recommend this for children under the age of 10 or so.

This is a great movie for the whole family. It continues the story of the original Dr. Seuss cartoon and book -- but does not annoy you with 100+ minutes of poetry.
I especially like the theme of conservation and taking care our world. Too ofthen, that message gets junked up with politics. Anything that can help my 3 and 4 year old understand that they need to clean up and take care of their world is alright by me. The Irony, after watching the once-ler throw down his trash -- my kids noticed all the popcorn and wrappers on the ground where we sat, and helped clean it up.
At the end, all the little kids in the theater clapped, including my 3-year old daughter. This is a movie I would recommend to any parent.
