MOVIE REVIEW: DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX (Chris Renaud, Kyle Balda, 2012)

065B2690-FB94-4077-95AE-CA77DAFEAB17

Expect Dr. Seuss to embed environmental issues in his stories written for kids (or were they?). With its bright color palette and prancing animals, the movie sidestepped the theme and focused on the cuteness factor. I’m not sure if kids will enjoy it as much as Despicable Me but it should be good enough to keep them quiet for a few minutes.

Rating: ★★★☆☆
