DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Fantasy - This is a 3D animated musical comedy based on the beloved children's book by Dr. Seuss. Young children and families are the definite target though parents may find some of the departures from the book odd. While the title character, the Lorax is not seen as much as other characters, and Zac Efron and Taylor Swift's fans may be disappointed that neither sing.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good On the whole, however, fans of the book will more than likely be pleased with this extended interpretation. Children should enjoy the experience while the adults accompanying them won't wish they were elsewhere.

USA Today Full Review
Good All ages are likely to find the cautionary tale entertaining as well as illuminating. Some might even find it galvanizing.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Below Average Like 'An Inconvenient Truth' for the 12-and-under crowd, 'Dr. Seuss' The Lorax' is a cautionary environmental tale with a thin veneer of entertainment on top.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The pastoral landscape of Truffula Valley is filled with a variety of animals—from soaring Swomee-Swans to harmonic Humming-Fish. Cutest of all are bearlike creatures known as Bar-ba-loots, who tumble among the Truffula Trees.

The Lorax's job as guardian of the forest is put to the test when the ambitious young Once-ler chops down a Truffula Tree and threatens to chop down more to further his lofty business plan. Incensed by this uncaring act against nature, the Lorax angrily criticizes the Onceler's actions. From their first interaction, the Lorax and the Once-ler are at odds. Each is determined to get rid of the other, but over time they develop a mutual fondness for each other. Ultimately, the Lorax is no match for the greed and ambition that begins to consume the Once-ler, who stops at nothing to build his enterprise—even if it means chopping down every last tree and destroying the valley.

Years later, in a world devoid of trees, Ted ventures beyond the borders of his perfectly industrialized town of Thneedville on a journey to find the Once-ler and learn how he can bring home a tree for the girl of his dreams, Audrey. Although hesitant at first, the Once-ler sees something in Ted that inspires him to tell the story of his encounter with the Lorax, which in turn inspires Ted's mission to restore balance to Thneedville by bringing back Truffula Trees for the whole town.
