So we went to the cinema, with nothing on that we wanted to watch. Dr Seuss' The Lorax looked like an alright film, although the trailers and the title didn't appeal to us. Nevertheless, we went to watch it anyway.

At first, I thought it was going to have an extremely poor storyline that would drag on just to use up the 90-minute norm length for films these days. However, it was quite interesting. A boy, trying to impress a girl who wants to have a real tree (sorry, I forgot to explain that they are living in a highly polluted town where they have machines that produce clean air and where all the trees are either inflatable or mechanical). To get a real tree, the boy needs to go and find the only man who knows what happened to them (yes, I know, doesn't sound the best).

As the story develops, we learn more about just what happened to everything. It all builds up and the pieces of the puzzle slot together until you know the truth. It is entirely true that this story could be told in under 10 or 15 minutes, but the full 90 minutes include the tiny details. The town is very much alive and living, with song and dance throughout, but the people living there do not understand the importance of trees (as they follow the manufacturer of bottled air who is totally against the things that 'stick out of the ground, with no purpose and leave messy leaves all over the place').

The film also contains an aspect of humour - not too cheesy, just enough to keep you interested in the film whilst thinking about the true seriousness of it. Entertaining and well-thought, this film is great for the whole family, so see it now! Forget about the title that puts you off and the poor trailers. 9/10 and a big moral. Remember - UNLESS.

Better than it looks this one. It may not go down as a classic,but with a good message about things we really should care more about,this film does it's job well.
It's basicly about a boy trying to find a tree for a place that has none,the reasons given as the story goes on. It's well thought out with good voice overs and some really good songs,including a very catchy one near the end. I'm a grown man and i really got into the characters and liked what they were teaching,all this done with nice images and beautiful colours,good job.

In the age of Hollywood's seeming endless films aimed against greed, consumerism, and environmental destruction, "The Lorax" is not to be outdone. Unlike the other films with hidden messages, this one is very direct. The voice of Danny Devito and Betty White made the film very special as you can see them in those roles. The film incorporates some of the original Dr. Seuss poetry to convey the message, but doesn't bog down the film with it as to lose the target audience who may not enjoy it as much as we did when we read the original first edition hard covers in the third grade.

The story is about the Once-ler (what's in a name? Ed Helms) who cuts down all the trees and at times looking like Elton John playing the Pinball Wizard. He did this to make the Thneed (a versatile Huggie) that no one wanted until a pretty girl wore one. Ted Wiggins (Zac Efron) wants to obtain a tree because the pretty redhead Audry (Taylor Swift) wants one. Sort of like Brad Pitt suddenly caring about hungry third world kids. There are musical numbers and numerous messages about consumer marketing, greed, bottled water, and the environment. SNL's Nasim Pedrad did the voice of the Once-ler's mom, reminding me of the grandmother in the old Carol Burnett series.

Perhaps the best message of the film is that individuals can make a difference. As an adult I enjoyed the film.

THIS IS A VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING MOVIE ALTHOUGH IT IS AIMED AT CHILDREN IT EXPLAINS IN A WAY A CHILD CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT BIG CORRUPT BUSINESSES DO TO THIS PLANET. BELOW IS MY SON'S REVIEW OF THIS MOVIE.

i think that this movie is the best movie ever i was very happy at the end when the people saw that real trees are good. and i loved when the lorax came back me and my mum cried happy tears.

I was so happy with this movie, I knew I had to see it but I was hesitant. As most reviewers have said this is one of Dr. Suess's best books and how can that possibly translate properly to a movie.

Well as hesitant as I was to watch The Lorax I was curious. I watched this with my 2 1/2 year- old daughter and I loved it and what's more my daughter loved it which is more important than what I think of it anyway. Everyday since we got this on DVD my daughter pulls it off the shelf and says "mommy let's watch the Lorax." But as most parents know already your kids have their favorites and my daughter won't sit through movies that she doesn't like, this seems to become one of those favorites.

To also make it clear my daughter is familiar with the book as well she has me read it almost every night. Both book and movie drive the same message across in slightly different but effective ways.

I loved this and thought it was an excellent artistic interpretation of the wonderfully written Lorax by Dr. Suess. I only hope that after all the books turned to movies recently people can start to understand that the book and movie are separate, but this never seems to be understood.There will always be discrepancies between book and movie. The main thing is that this movie is wonderful despite the differences.
