When the Once-ler is walking to his office once he became rich, what appears to be a blow-up magazine cover is hanging on the wall. It is caption "Too big to fail", which is an colloquial term in economics to define an institution whose failure would bring catastrophic consequences to the economy. After the 2009 banking collapse, modern economists have said that institutions too big to fail are simply too big to exist. See more »
The second time Ted goes to see the Once-ler, he accelerates his scooter using the left handle; in the rest of the movie, the accelerator is in the (usual) right-hand handle. See more »

We brought our children (6 & 9) to the Real D & Imax 3D version of the Lorax and enjoyed the film. Those of you with conservative leanings will note the unfiltered message of corporate greed at the expense of all and the over 70 corporate-sponsored product placements are fun to spot, but my kids took away the lesson that promises are not to be lightly made or broken. The 20 minutes of upcoming previews of ADHD sequels ahead of the movie's start, combined with an oversold theatre, drove home the value of our Lorax-endorsed Sony Home DVD player. I certainly enjoy 3D films but if I had it to do all over again, the Lorax really didn't have special effects or scenes that warranted the unsightly glasses - just see the regular version, this isn't Star Wars. In summary, the Lorax is a fun film that you and your whole family can warmly enjoy. Any strikes I have against the experience arise more from issues with what we can expect from the cinema as opposed to this flick from Seuss Corps. Stars and thumbs up!
