I grew up reading the Lorax. To be honest, it's the only Seuss besides the Grinch that I really adore. So when the teaser posters and trailers started appearing for the movie, I was more than a little excited. And then reality set in. This current movie incarnation isn't the Lorax. It doesn't even resemble the Lorax save for a few similar characters. And when I say a few, I mean it...the book has three basic characters, the movie seems to have about 57.
So while I already have my tickets to see the Hunger Games, I'll be sitting the Lorax out. Read the book, I can guarantee it's much better, and the brown barbaloots will thank you for it.
