Is that movie any good?
Just in time for Dr. Seuss' birthday, one of his beloved stories makes it's way to the big screen.
As long as there have been girls, there have been boys trying to impress them. And young Ted from the town of Thneedville, is no different.
Thneedville is an all plastic town, where folks have to buy fresh air and where there are no actual living trees...they're all plastic.
So when the girl Ted likes tells him she would marry the boy who could bring her a real life tree, he naturally sets out on a mission to find one. He is told the story of what happened to all the trees and the mythical creature who tried to stop it, The Lorax.
The Lorax being essentially the union spokesman for the trees, and voiced by Danny Devito. Part giant furry jelly bean, part big amazing mustache, The Lorax is just one of the many ridiculously cute creatures that inhabit the forest of hairy lollipop looking trees.
If anything, the film gets an A for adorable. The movie does a good job of taking a bizarre story, filling in some blanks and putting it on the big screen. And with several musical numbers and filled with bright and vibrant colors, it should do a good job at holding children's' attention.
This imaginative tale with a blatant environmental and anti-logging and anti-pollution message, is filled with much silliness and several laugh out loud moments that made this 31 year old enjoy it very much. I thought"Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" was pretty good.
