Better than the live action Dr. Suess movies but thats not saying much. I'm sure Illumination meant well when they made this film, but its sad we haven't seen a Dr. Suess feature film that was really faithful to the lessons taught by his beloved books.

The Lorax, ooohhhh boy what can say about this movie? how about the nice animation, looks great but what about the other parts of this film that makes it painful to sit through like ,the dull story, lazy writing ,an environmental message that could've been subtle but its just extremely obnoxious ,one dimensional characters and annoyingly atrocious songs. name a movie that shamefully mess the source material from top to bottom ,this movie is the best example.

The Lorax took a simple children's story and turned it into a brightly-colored, heavy-handed snorefest. It's obvious, based on the casting, that they were trying to lure in younger viewers, but they forgot to make the filler plot or the musical numbers interesting. The book is definitely better.

It is certainly not as bad as the Grinch or Cat in the Hat movies, but The Lorax is another movie that misses the point of its beloved source material. Instead of taking risks and challenging its audience, it plays everything safe and crushes the message with annoying pop-culture references and materialism that borders on insulting.

I wouldn't exactly say it's funny, but there is a clear message delivered really well about evil corporations ruining our planet. There are great characters and cast, good animation and catchy music.

Political correctness run amok with a non-transparent liberal agenda attempt to brainwash children. Skip this piece of fecal matter.

Though it has some catchy musical numbers and colorful animation, the Lorax is uninspired, and goes against it's own message, as it has a ton of product tie ins. It is entertaining at times though, with just a tad of humor.

A colourful and inventive movie to show to people how humans are treating the most valueble thing we have: our planet.
With good visuals and fun characters is a perfectly nice animated movie!
It's and 7,4 out of 10.

The Lorax provides a plethora of thought-provoking themes and its colorful world will appeal to younger viewers, but it does stray very far from the book itself, and the musical numbers don't fix it either.

Save the trees. Got it.

only 5 years later, and it's awful and dated movie tropes make it nearly unwatchable.

A blatantly anti-corporate butchering of a great literary work that makes James Cameron's Avatar look subtle by comparison. However, that's the least of this piece of trash's worries. With a script that's made it its mission to make the good Doctor roll in his grave, horribly dated and one-dimensional characters, and the strange need to compress the original (flawless) story into a 5-minute musical number while cramming the rest of the movie with pointless fluff, this is permanently on my hate list.

I loathe this movie. It takes the message of the original story and oversimplifies it to the point where it's insultingly one dimensional because Hollywood thinks we're too stupid to understand a little thematic complexity. I'm not gonna act like the original story was a masterpiece of literature, but it respected the intelligence of its readers, both the kids and the adults. This film throws all of that out the window. Seriously. Fuck...this...movie!

Very Funny A tree falls the way it leans

Not a very good adaptation. It's too cluttered and tries too hard to be appealing. And the characters aren't designed very well.

i watch this movie whenever im depressed and it makes me feel things

The Lorax stuffs an overbearing environmentalist message into what should be a fun film. Instead, it merely expects you to laugh and applaud without putting the effort in to earn either reward.
