Dr Seuss' The Lorax Reviews

Wesley Lovell
Cinema Sight

It's heart is in the right place, but the execution isn't quite what it needs to be to excel.

Daily Star

The flat, non-rhyming dialogue and mainly dull new characters don't feel particularly Seussian. But thankfully, the animation does.

We Got This Covered

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax is an entertaining and cautionary tale that stays true to the spirit of the good doctor.

Three minutes of substance, 91 minutes of shrill filler.

A delightful animated feature with special appeal for tree lovers.

Fan The Fire

Illumination Entertainment has dispensed with almost all of Dr Seuss' endearing dialogue, which is a shame, because the film could do with more of a personality of its own.

IGN DVD

A mostly harmless, cute and cuddly pop-infused babysitter for the ADD generation, but a wretched adaptation of Seuss' classic work.

[Hollywood] simply doesn't see girls' and women's lives and needs as worthy of telling stories about... not even when one particular girl's desires are the obvious driver for the story being told.

Observer [UK]

It's a didactic piece with too much prose, too many chases and not enough wit. Small children will probably like it, but they deserve better.

The catchy songs, personable characters and heartfelt message mean this is still a sweet and enjoyable concoction.

It stinks.

SFX Magazine

Musical numbers, gorgeous design and a brilliant motorbike chase through the deliciously surreal Thneedville lift this from being a preachy, eco-friendly plod to a witty and comical adventure.

Movie Talk

Hollywood has found it tricky translating the whimsical magic of Dr Seuss' tales from page to screen and the makers of The Lorax don't fully pull off the feat here.

Liverpool Echo

Underlying messages of unity and self-sacrifice for a greater good are admirable, drizzled with mawkish sentimentality to sweeten the pill.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

A film that's fatally lacking in humanity, and looks as flashy, plastic and commercialised as the world Dr Seuss condemned.

Guardian [UK]

It looks bright and clean and sharp. But there is no charm or life.

It is like delirium tremens, only less fun.

Younger children should be satisfied.

Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph

When a film misses the point as cretinously as The Lorax does, it really gets the blood up, although perhaps the lesson to learn here is simply that Seuss's aesthetic resists a cinematic treatment.

Film4

Lacks personality and charm, and ends up feeling, somewhat ironically, like a cynical exercise in commercialisation.
