“Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax” Movie Review

(Colorful message, Unless)

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”  Dr. Seuss

Under the deeper meanings of corporate greed, love, caring, and the message that one person can make a difference, “Dr. Suess’ The Lorax” is a beautiful visual movie that both entertains and educates.

In a world where trees have been eliminated and someone makes billions of dollars selling air Zac Efron (as Ted) falls in love with his neighbor, Audrey (voiced by Taylor Swift).

Audrey dreams of seeing a real tree, and Ted decides to find one.

Grammy Norma (Betty White) remembers trees and tells Ted he needs to leave town (not an easy task) to ask the Once-ler (Ed Helms) where he might find one.

At the Once-ler’s house, Ted learns the story of how trees disappeared: A deeply disturbing commentary of many of the worlds ills, but, made for kids to enjoy and, hopefully, learn.

“Dr. Suess’ The Lorax” is a stunningly beautiful movie.  The graphics are astounding and the story is simultaneously colorful & bleak and joyful & depressing.  Ok for kids (in fact most of the audience were knee high) and ok for adults and teens (as long as you learn the lesson being taught!).  No f-words, no cursing at all.

Oh…Danny DeVito is wonderful as The Lorax.   I wonder if Taylor Swift will now write a song about Ted?  🙂

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this movie at the Tracy, CA  CineMark where our poster is STILL UP (look up as you leave!).

Drive Safe!  Never Forget.
