Another Dr. Suess story gets adapted into a film (kind of)
When It comes to adapting Dr.Seuss' books into an hour and a half film is difficult even if its done right or not, but with The Lorax its isn't actually done right, but it still tries to get a cross the stuff for the book is being used as a subplot, it kind of told right and I kind of enjoy it, but the main plot is the main problem of this film, where they show the stuff that isn't from the book, it just stupid, witch will get to later.
The film is also a musical, and that was a pretty stupid choice, because he songs really do suck. The subplot the stuff from the book was good, at times it gets a laugh, Danny Deveto as The Lorax is a really good choice, and its enjoyable. Now the main plot just shows a some kid played by Zac Efforn who lives in some anti-nature town, trying to hit on some older girl played by Taylor Swift, and decides to impress her with growing a tree and goes to the Onc-ler and asks him about the trees (and yeah the visiting the onc-ler part was in the book).
I mean why can they focus with the stuff from the book and leave some of the main plot out, I know its really hard but, Horton Hears a Who worked, it didn't made a good minority of the focus on Zac Effron trying hit on Taylor Swift or throwing in crappy songs, it work because it kept some of the elements not from the book between a minute to six minutes, and still kept it focused on the plot and moral from the book and It was also well paced to have the plot it was adapted from reach the 90 minute mark.
So some of you might think I hate this film, but I don't, when they tell the parts are from the book, it work and when they tell they stuff has nothing to with the book doesn't, so its kind of mixed.
