I was excited to see “The Lorax” movie, and went today to check it out. It’s my favorite Seuss book, so naturally I came away with mixed feelings. I posted my review on Rotten Tomatoes, with three-and-a-half stars. Here’s the first paragraph:
"The Lorax" is a good enough movie, as long as you’re not hoping for a faithful adaptation of Dr. Seuss for the big screen. The music and comedy is very kid friendly. But for me, a thirty-something who grew up on the original book, the storyline hardly felt like a Seuss book. It seemed like the film makers were out mainly to make a decent children’s movie, and they succeeded at that.
