A 12-year-old boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.
In the walled city of Thneed-Ville, where everything is artificial and even the air is a commodity, a boy named Ted hopes to win the heart of his dream girl, Audrey. When he learns of her wish to see a real tree, Ted seeks out the Once-ler, a ruined old businessman outside of town in a stark wasteland. Upon hearing of how the hermit gave into his greed for profits and devastated the land over the protests of the Lorax, Ted is inspired to undo the disaster. However, the greedy Mayor of Thneed-Ville, Aloysius O'Hare, has made his fortune exploiting the environmental collapse and is determined to stop the boy from undermining his business.Written by

This is Illumination's first musical film. See more »
During the "Let it Grow" song, once Ted's family and Audrey start singing, you can see O'Hare's employees' mouths moving but you can't hear them singing. They might just be lip-syncing. See more »
[Referring to her mural]
Those are trees. Real ones. They used to grow all around here. And people said that the touch of their tufts was softer than anything, even silk. And they smelled like butterfly milk.

You adults ragging on this movie because it doesn't agree with your social views should be ashamed of yourselves. This is a CHILDREN'S movie! For the love of God! One voter said "for a children's movie to be successful it needs to cater to both children AND adults?" No it doesn't you idiot! If that mattered, these cartoons wouldn't make $100 million every time. Another voter said "if my kid wasn't enjoying it so much, I would have walked out"! Hilarious! Are you the same guy that would have walked out of Chuck E Cheese if your child wasn't having a great time? Ignorant Clown! And then there are those adults that went to see this without children and complain about the silly music scenes. Get a life! Those scenes weren't created for you. I haven't seen this movie yet...I'm going with my 7 year old in a few minutes. Will I enjoy this movie? Probably Not! As a conservative Republican I will hate it. However, should I not take my son because this cartoon doesn't agree with my philosophies?....UPDATE...I enjoyed it! Thank you to all the nitwits writing misguided bad reviews. I went in with terrible expectations and came out all smiles...but who cares about me. My son loved it and is still wearing my scarf 7 hours later...his new Thneed!
