Comes right out of the gate swinging the sledgehammer of environmentalism and then never bothers to tell a decent story. The world is bright, colorful, and Seussical but the songs are lame, the humor mostly non-existent, and every character is aggressively one-dimensional.
"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.” - Dr. Seuss. The environmental issue in the film is very much of importance for today's modern age, as much as it was in 1971 when Dr. Seuss wrote the book! Overall, a good film--not great--the message of the film is definitely worth the watch! I'm sure the book is far better. Dr. Seuss' legacy lives on in his books!
