Seldom does that much money get spent for such a weak product as this. This movie gave me the feeling the makers thought this was a sure thing. Just goes to show that nothing is certain. Terrible writing. Lame humor. Borrowed jokes. Borrowed characters. Insultingly stupid premises even for a cartoon. Lame family representations. No dads evident in the movie - just matriarchs. The bad guys are rednecks which seemed part hillbilly and part mafia. The other bad guys were über-evil businesses that want to pollute so they can sell air. Really? You call that writing? Don't you have to show some intelligence to write in Hollywood? Obviously not.
The original Lorax didn't need a childish resolution or silly, lame, cliché humor. It was sad and a little poignant and made you want to protect nature. This movie made me want to chop down a tree - or a tall dandelion with a red tuft on it.
