He is the Lorax, the protector of trees, and he’s in theaters right now, in an animated adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic (also, happy Dr. Seuss day).

A 12-year-old boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.

The movie stars Danny DeVito as The Lorax, Ed Helms as The Once-ler, Zac Efron as Ted, Taylor Swift as Audrey, and a host of other recognizable names.

Did you see the movie? Did it stand up to the spirit of Theodor Geisel, or was this simply another pillaging of a property to make a fast buck?

  1. I’ve been angry about the feature length Seuss movies since Jim Carrey’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. There is no way they could have gotten approval on this crap when Geisel was alive. He had to be convinced just to approve the Chuck Jones cartoons and those were as faithful as adaptations can be. And now 19 years after his death, we have a CGI Lorax shilling for an car company. It makes me sad.
