Another good story from Dr. Seuss. Good movie for kids, but still makes adult person to realize something.

"The Lorax", colorfully animated and wonderfully exuberant, does a great job conveying a Dr. Seuss-esque world, but like always, Hollywood always needs to dumb down the main core of what made the source material such a classic: the message. Instead, Hollywood has managed to fluff...

Talk about bad storytelling, the plot was split down the middle with little to no encompassing relationships. The Lorax played little to no role, the protagonist and his quest for "love" is about as real as the trees littered in the city of whateverthefuck. The theme is delivered...

"Meh. That was my first thoughts as the ending credits started rolling. I was under the assumption it was going to be much funnier than it was. I guess that's what happens when they put all the funny moments in the trailers. Oh well. I did think it was cute though. I think Taylor...

Dr. Seuss movies don't really translate to movies as well as they probably could. "Grinch" was ok, and "Cat in the Hat" was down right terrible. Here the "Lorax" is in the middle. The animation is fantastic, and the characters voices are done good. But the story is a bit mudd...

Dear God this was yet another appalling kids film that talks down to "our future". This is such a huge pile of disgusting drivel I don't even know where to begin. The Lorax sees a town that lives in a huge bubble where everything is made of plastic. One boy goes out to find a rea...

Much, much better then I was expecting. Great for kids, fun for adults. Fun for all ages. A must see family movie.
Making a movie for this short story was definitely a major risk-taker, but the producers, in my mind, achieved every aspect of the story we grew know and love. The ...

A cute and enjoyable animation that stays true to the ecological message of Dr. Seuss's book. With an optimistic and hopeful story that speaks to all children, it proves to be much more efficient (and funnier) than the likes of Ice Age 4 and Madagascar 3, also released this year.

Based extremely loosely on the Dr Seuss story of the same name and as usual with Hollywood they have fudged it all up.
The story is an environmental one, an eco plot if you will about the effects of cutting down trees. Put simply (just like the original book did) there is a smal...

Vibrant and colorful, but oh-so-unfunny! I can't honestly recall a single moment where The Lorax made me laugh. Not even a hearty chuckle or a related thought of amusement. And clearly I'm not alone in being underwhelmed by this film.
I've never read any of the children'...
