A mess! Not the worst animated film I've watched, but it's a bit harsh in the delivery of its message; it's also annoying at times. I probably liked the opening musical number way more than I should have though.

Kind of misses the mark on what is great about the original story. The 'modern' inclusions for kids just come off as dumbed down plot devices. Still, it has it's enjoyable moments. And I think DeVito is excellent as the Lorax.

I agree with some other reviewers who say this is geared more towards kids than adults. Considering the source material, it turned out pretty good. The animation was crisp, the story and characters were okay (Danny DeVito was particularly well cast) and it was a fun, if a bit underwhelming, animated feature.

When Are We Going To Get A Good Suess Film?

Another Dr. Suess adaption. I say this without enthusiasm or disappointment. Dr. Suess films are usually just mediocre, nothing to get excited over. However, they make a lot of money. Thus, we get the movie adaption of "The Lorax."

I won't lie, I've never read The Lorax, nor do I know anything about it, aside from it's environmental message. But I can tell this film really stretched the source material. Even with the extensive (and uninteresting) chase scene, even with the half-dozen of musical numbers (only one of which I really enjoyed), and even with the additional characters added, the film has a relatively modest running time.

The Lorax isn't that good, unfortunately. It has strengths, but it also has a lot of weaknesses.

For one, it seems The Lorax has no imagination for...

The Lorax Review

There are two things guaranteed to lure me into seeing a movie; the first is humor, preferably of the snarky and sarcastic variety---and secondly, animation. I feel quite certain that movies like “Despicable Me” and “Megamind” were, in fact, written more for people like myself than any child that might see them. So I was completely in my element this weekend when I checked out a showing of “The Lorax”---which is coincidentally directed by the same clever people who came up with “Despicable Me”, one of my all time favorites.

THE GOOD: I know this will probably take a lot of you by surprise, especially since I am the mother of three and am practically as old as Dr. Suess himself---but I have never read the story of the Lorax before. I had no idea the man was such an environmentalist-...
