Amazing Movie
29 January 2006 | by XOXcaitXOXSee all my reviews

This is by far the best movie anyone will ever see. When i first saw it about 8 years ago I watched it so much that every member of my family knew every word, and every song, even though they had never seen it themselves. Dr. Seuss is a genius, the best writer there will ever be. No movie even compares to how much fun this movie is. With a great ending..

The Lorax is such a powerful sad story, makes you want to keep your environment safe

Grinch teaches to be nice to everyone, don't judge looks, never leave anyone out

The Sneeches teaches not to be competitive and be happy with what you have, and if someone's got more than you it doesn't matter

How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon.. December's here before it's June.. How did it get so late so soon?

The Best, Amazing, Superb, um..Fantastic! movie..

You're missing out if you haven't seen it..:)
