Seuss would be disgusted at what his wonderful creations have become
If someone walked up to you in the street with a rock that had THE MORAL written on it in capital letters, and them proceeded to beat you about the head with it, it would be more subtle than this movie.
It was trite, preachy, and more full of flagrant cliché than any movie I have ever seen.
The thing I loved most about Seuss was his ability to nestle a moral gently and concisely under layers of symbolism. Yes, his stories were sometimes over the top and hyperbolic, in an endearing way, but they made their point and moved on.
As I am now.
If you love Seuss, and do not want to risk ruining everything that his genius taught you, do not watch this movie.
