Synopsis


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.

    I ordered this mostly excited for the digital copy. The description is completely wrong. I was on hold for an hour and was told to "Stop talking. There is nothing we can do". That's HORRIBLE customer service and Best Buy has shown it doesn't care. Really disappointed being a Best Buy Elite Plus Member and thinking they would be helpful.

    I purchased this Blu Ray twice. Once as a pick up in my local store and once online and both times i did not receive what was in the description for this product. This is only a blu-ray + dvd with no Ultaviolet digital copy. The box is different then what is pictured above as well.

    My daughter loves watching the Lorax. I was thrilled when I saw this a Best Buy that include a digital copy. When I received it, there was no digital copy. They need to change the packaging to NOT include a digital copy.

    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.

    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.
