The Lorax is a must see family film that will definitely bring laughter all around.

The film begins in a town which is absolutely artificial, having everything made out of plastic. A twelve year old boy, Ted (voiced by Zac Efron), has a crush on the girl next door, Audrey (voiced by Taylor Swift). Audrey wishes that there were trees and Ted knows if he finds a tree, he would win her heart, but the only problem is - where are the trees?

The film has a somewhat subtle moral about saving the trees and how much people need them. It teaches kids an environmental message that usually isn't told - if we don't look after the environment and take care of it, it will be gone forever.

I watched this film with a group of adults and one five year old, and it was entertaining for both age groups. It had also brought me back to memory lane, about the many days I had spent, reading Dr Seuss books and the crazy worlds he had created. Seeing the film in 3D had brought all those memories in real life, and the image I had when I was a kid of reading Dr Seuss was pin pointed down, and was displayed right in front of me.

Though I absolutely love Dr Seuss, I must admit the storyline for me was a bit boring, and I did fall asleep for a brief period. However the others who watched the film with me, fell in love with the colourful and exotic world of Dr Seuss, including my little brother, who cannot stop singing the songs that were in the film.

Overall The Lorax was a film that entertained adults and children, as well as educating society that without the protection and survival of the environment, we are heading towards a dark hole.
