Review March 2012

Dr. Seuss is best known for his popular children's books that incorporate colorful characters, rhyme, and oftentimes, sociopolitical views. Topics such as anti-consumerism, racial equality, and environmentalism. The latter of which is captured in his latest book to hit the big screen, The Lorax. In the film, a young boy ventures outside the polluted environs of his home town in search of the legendary Truffula tree in an attempt to win the affection of the girl next door. Along the way, he bumps into a recluse who shares the story of The Lorax, a small orange creature who serves as guardian of the forest. Brought to screen by the same group responsible for Despicable Me, The Lorax is cotton candy on the eyes. With recognizable voiceovers, musical numbers, sight gags, and a bevy of chase scenes, both young and old audiences will find plenty of superficial delights. And one very somber message from The Lorax.
