Dr Seuss' The Lorax

Critics Consensus

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax is cute and funny enough but the moral simplicity of the book gets lost with the zany Hollywood production values.

Critic Reviews for Dr Seuss' The Lorax

All Critics (154) | Top Critics (34)

  • It stinks.

    Jul 27, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • It looks bright and clean and sharp. But there is no charm or life.

    Jul 26, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Amidst all the padding and razzle-dazzle 3D CGI, the Lorax himself and his grumpy admonitions are pushed to the margins - but the Once-ler's musical number 'How Bad Can I Be?' operates as an anthem for the self-serving, cynical casuistry of our own times.

    Jul 26, 2012
  • About as factory-produced a film as it's possible to make about the evils of commercialism, while the bulbous, Haribo-hued animation style reflects none of Seuss's visual wit.

  • May be a diversion for younger children, but it betrays the elegant simplicity of Geisel's vision.

    Mar 19, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Directors Chris Renaud and Kyle Balda have filled every scene with funny-looking (or sounding) characters, sight gags, and one-liners to provide constant distraction.
