Better a film for kids on the environment than one that is violent. Fun to watch.

In this animated movie which I felt was simple in some ways they got the good message across that "We are the keepers of our Earth and everything we do can have consequences" and sometimes those consequences are not always good, even if we intend them to be(good ones).

Cute, little teddy bears aside, Dr. Seuss's original story wasn't a romance, at all. And, yet, out of what I think is disrespect, Hollywood has clearly disregarded this story's intended innocence and re-imagined The Lorax through the silly, starry-eyed motivations of pure selfishness as a naive, 12 year-old boy goes well out of his way to impress a very ordinary girl whom he doesn't even know._____ This is a very heavy-handed, message-oriented movie that completely demonizes corporate culture as being the blackest of the black - While at the same time it shamelessly white-washes the environmental movement as being the whitest of the white._____ Unfortunately, this sort of outcome is what one would expect to happen whenever you take a short, children's story, and, without any real insight, try to realize it into a feature-length film._____ This risk of losing the genuine charm of the original tale inevitably gets completely lost in the transition. And this is what I believe happened with The Lorax._____ I doubt that Dr. Seuss would be very impressed with this unsatisfactory adaptation of his story.
