Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax

Genre: Children, Family, Animated
Released: 2012

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 

Note: Do you remember those Troll dolls from back in the day with the hair you could comb? That is what the tree’s reminded me of in the flick!

“The Lorax” is an entertaining but very average 3D kids flick with an overbearing message. Listen, I’m all for films sending messages about the environment but when you beat the audience over the head with it, the annoyance factor steps in and the entertainment factor steps out. Luckily, the characters are engaging, the 3D is pleasant, the animation is gorgeous and the music is fantastic. The movie is definitely going for that Dreamworks/Pixar formula of appealing to adults and kids. It gets the kid part right but goes way overboard with the messages for adults. Read The Full Review
