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 »
You've got a beautiful town here, Ted! I can't think of any reason you'd want to leave town... ever again.

I enjoyed this movie. Yes, the fact that Taylor Swift's voice was featured maybe did add and extra bonus for me (I'm a huge fan) but it also made me think. It made me think about how kids are the future, we are the world and if we don't do anything, nothing will change. It will only grow worse. And this is why I think the movie sends the huge message. Not only was it funny, it made you think. And that's the whole point. Kids will make the future.. So know what you want to do and do it. Just like Ted. Be the person you want to be. Dr. Seuss may not be here now, but it doesn't mean we can't listen to what he's written. We can change the world.
