I did not see “The Lorax,” the adaptation of Dr. Seuss’s famous book opening today. I did, however, discuss it with John Hanlon on our Red State Movie Mafia podcast.
John said the movie was good in its creation, funny and well-made, enjoyable. However, he cautioned that it carries a strong environmental message that becomes downright anti-business. It’s as if there’s no middle ground, he said, between liking trees and businesses wanting all trees to be destroyed. It sets up a false choice. Parents should be aware that the movie carries this message.
Ladies and gentlemen, The Lorax.
The Lorax is rated PG-13 for mild language.
