IGN - What's up, funfans? It's Fowler here again with another adult/parent's perspective on a big-budget wide-release kid's movie. This time around it's Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, which is based on the beloved, yet politically controversial, book from 1971 about a curious kid who visits a hermit at the edge of town to find out why there are no longer any trees in the realm. I found myself feeling the same about The Lorax as I did Fox's animated Horton Hears a Who! - which is that the original message and sentiment of Seuss' text sweetly resonates while the rest of the overwrought window dressing that's required to take a short story with a focused message and expand it out into an exciting adventure film only serves to dilute and bore.
