Film Review Short Shorts: The Lorax


THE LORAX (2012) Chris Renaud & Kyle Balda: 7/10

24 Words or Less:I liked the fantasy scenery; marshmallows, trees, enjoyable looking characters. Songs were catchy and funny. Eco-message was a bit heavy handed.

Best Bit: ‘In Thneedville, we don’t want to know / Where the smog and trash and chemicals go. / I just went swimming, and now I glow!’


P.S. My bugbear with popular animation these days is that voices are chosen for their star appeal rather than suitability to the character. Zac Efron’s casting is a classic example of this.
