It only took four films, but I am now completely convinced that feature films just are not the place for Dr. Seuss. I have never been a huge fan of Ron Howard’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas, but at least it had a few pleasant moments sprinkled throughout thanks to the casting of Jim Carrey. While I will never find this film in my own personal collection, I know many people who consider it to be another holiday “classic.” Leave this name to the right classic 1966 version. In the live action realm, the less said about Mike Myers’ The Cat in the Hat, the better.
When it was announced that Horton Hears a Who! would be computer animated, I had high hopes, aside from the fact that it was under the guidance of the team in the rear the law of diminishing returns’ Ice Age films, Blue Sky Studios. While certainly a step up from the likes of The Grinch and especially The Cat, the film still managed to be extremely underwhelming. Considering the filmmakers were already stretching a 72-page book of charming whimsy into an 86 minute film, things got above all dull in the Jungle of Nool. Now Universal Pictures has taken Dr. Seuss’ even shorter 45-page book about ecology and twisted it into 96 dreadful minutes of soapbox preaching. Unfortunately, subtlety is the last thing you’re going to find in the world of Thneedville.
The creative minds of the far greater Disgraceful Me now bring you the misadventures of 12-year-ancient Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) and his search for the truth in the rear what happened to all the gone trees of Thneedville. The world full of plastic is run by the greedy Mr. O’Hare (voiced by Rob Riggle), who is scoring huge money off of his O’Hare Air. But Ted has the hots for classmate Audrey (voiced by Taylor Swift), and one day flies an R/C airplane into her backyard. Audrey ushers him out back where she shows off the giant, seemingly extinct, Truffula trees she has painted onto her house and tells him that she would marry anyone on the spot who can show her a real, live tree.
Back at home, Ted’s Grammy Norma (voiced by Betty White) tells him he needs to find the mysterious “Once-ler” (voiced by Ed Helms). Only he knows the key to where the Truffula Trees be. Alas, Ted seeks out the “Once-ler” where he is then told the tale of what happened to the town’s environment, for it was he who chopped down all the trees, much to the dismay of the small orange speaker of the trees, the titular Lorax (voiced by Danny DeVito). Now Ted has to find out that the power to save the earth, at least of Thneedville that is, if he can find the strength to stand up against huge business and all its dastardly ways.
