The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

A teen girl kisses a teen boy on the cheek.

A young man speeds on a ramp on his motorized unicycle and lands in a man's bathroom; the man is showering and we see his bare shoulder and upper chest when he peeks around the curtain and yells.

Violence & Gore

Mild animated violence, but nothing terribly frightening or gross. Age 5+

Profanity

The word "Damn" is used by the antagonist in an elevator.

At the end of the air bottle commercial, the tv announcer quickly adds "please breathe responsibly", similar to commercials for an alcohol beverage.

The Once-Ler's bed is put in a river while he's sleeping in it - an intense scene follows depicting the Once-Ler in a very dangerous situation, culminating in him almost falling down a waterfall, which may be frightening to some viewers.

The Once-Ler almost dies after being thrown from a waterfall to a nearby bank. While the resulting scene with the Lorax giving him CPR is mainly handled comically, it may be confusing to some younger viewers who are not familiar with the first aid concept, and also may be unsettling to watch due to its slight tension and the urgency of the situation.

There's a musical scene where the Once-Ler is portrayed as a giant man destroying the forest and scaring the animals away. This scene is slightly bizarre, and may frighten small children, as the music is also loud and strange.

The Once-ler aggressively yells at the Lorax while driving him backwards down a staircase.
