    Dr. Seuss' The Lorax
    Dr. Seuss' classic, environmentally themed children's book comes to the big screen in this tale of a young boy who encounters a cantankerous forest creature after venturing outside of his artificial city in search of a tree. Ted (voice of Zac Efron) lives in a town where nothing is quite as it appears; everything is plastic, including the plants. Hopelessly smitten by the beautiful Audrey (voice of Taylor Swift), who dreams of one day seeing a real tree, Ted boldly leaves the city determined to find the flora and grant her wish. Along the way, the young adventurer crosses paths with the Lorax (voice of Danny DeVIto), a diminutive, mustached defender of nature who doesn't take kindly to human intruders. The better Ted gets to know the Lorax, however, the more he learns that his newfound friend has good reason for being a bit surly. Also featuring the voices of Betty White, Ed Helms, and Rob Riggle. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      After numerous attempts at live-action films, have animators finally found their groove when depicting a tale by the late, legendary Dr. Seuss? Or are the majority of professional reviewers correct in their belief that the subject matter is not expansive enough for a full-length feature? Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) is a twelve year-old boy in the perfectly plastic metropolis of Thneedville. Everything in Thneedville is artificial and air itself is only available to those who pay for it. Ted (Efron), more than anything, wants to impress Audrey. Audrey (voiced by Taylor Swift) wants to see a real tree, but all the ones in Thneedville are electric and powered by batteries. Some even come equipped with a disco function utilizing music and mirrored balls. Ted asks his family where he might find a tree and his grandmother (voiced by Betty White) says that if he wants to know about trees he’ll have to venture outside of town and ask the Once-ler. The Once-ler (voiced by Ed Helms) is a hermit who never leaves his house and refuses to even speak to visitors until his very specific, very peculiar demands are met. Once they are, he begins to recount the epic tale of his arrival in the forest and eventual introduction to its protector and advocate The Lorax (voiced by Danny DeVito). In such politically-charged times, there’ll no doubt be critics who decry this film as preachy or anti-business. Perhaps if I held beliefs similar to said critics, I might agree. As I don’t hold such beliefs, what I saw was highly entertaining and even hilarious. I’m no fan of Zac Efron or Taylor Swift, but they were up to the task and while Danny DeVito might not have been the best choice, in my opinion, he managed. If you have young children, this film is a must-see that you might actually enjoy and if you don’t have children, who knows? You might just enjoy it anyway. I did.

      Poor Excuse for a "Deluxe Edition"


      I got this movie thinking that it was the other movie that was released on dvd the same year. Shame on Warner Brothers for releasing this movie on the same year as the feature movie. It is basically the same movie that was shown in 1972 on television. This video can be watched for free through an established streaming web site that is free to everyone. The movie itself has not aged well as the picture quality is just as washed out and outdated as ever. The plot is very basic and can be summed up in a few sentences. The movie itself is only approximately twenty five minutes. The special features are two trailers for their other outdated Dr. Seuss short films and a boring story on the trees. I saw this movie on television years ago as a child and it is as boring as it was. Further, this dvd is filled with commercials for their other products. This product is obviously an attempt to take advantage of the feature film that is being released on dvd at the same time but it is nowhere near the caliber of the feature film. There is a lesson to be learned from this short film but it can be had from other better made movies. Save your money and just watch it online for free. The biggest lesson here is to be careful when buying movies or you could be had by companies that are trying to scam you into buying something that is not worth your money. How ironic that The Lorax which is about big consumerism which is the problem with this product itself. The short film is already available for free and on other media so why waste paper and other resources to re-do a short film that turned out to be a waste of money and resources?

      Item returned: Not as described

      I really was looking forward to adding the Lorax to my animated film collection but returned it because the pack did NOT include the digital HD copy as described on the Best Buy website. (No digital copy is a deal breaker for me.) Frustrating experience because I returned it to the store after it was shipped to me. A guy in customer service kindly ordered another one for me with a different SKU number; he was quite sure that THIS one would include the digital copy. The second one soon arrived in my mailbox, but it too did not include the digital copy! Drove to the store a second time to make a return. :-( Please fix the listing for future customers!

      I bought this movie as part of a promotion; Buy two get one free. I picked this up at the store and the movie case did not say anything about a digital copy. I literally bought this movie for the digital code, Best Buy employee was very kind and offer me to open the movie to see if the digital code was inside, otherwise they will take it back. To my surprise, the code was inside. I was very happy, regardless the movie case is very misleading. Best Buy service was on point. Great Movie.

      Absolutely great for kids

      The Lorax is 1 of my favorite childhood cartoons I was skeptical as to the nature of this movie. Although I was very pleasantly surprised the characters are adorable the lessons are easy to learn music is catchy and even the bad guys you wanna love. Even though it skips over a few of the more concentrated areas of the original cartoon it does bring to life many realistic issues and teach you a lesson that if we don't take care of our world 1 day we may lose just everything that we value. and also take the time to make you feel that you can make a difference which is very true and is very much in your hands.

      Great Movie

      • My Best Buy Premier Silver MemberElite Plus Member

      This is a good movie about the need for trees. Reminds me of spaceballs needing clean air. It is part story within a story and part story of the need for clean air. Danny Devito plays the Lorax and is only in it for maybe half the movie. That is the real dissapointment. It shows how people just follow trends and government or Big business shuts down anyone who tries to break free. Even Others just go with the flow. The need for clean air and trees is evident but the need of some one to step up is the more powerful thought.

      My kid's favorite

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I am tired to turn it on every day, but it is what my kid asking me when asking for cartoon!!!! So, in my opinion they did a good job because of kids' choice to watch it over and over and in preference to other cartoons. Well, at least it is true to my kid. Also I like the idea of this cartoon. It actually shows for kids to take care of an environment. So, kids love cartoons and this one has a moral in it to think on circumstances of their actions.
