Quote of the Day

“Despite its soft environmentalist message 'The Lorax' is an example of what it pretends to oppose. Its relationship to Dr. Seuss’s book is precisely that of the synthetic trees that line the streets of Thneedville to the organic Truffulas they have displaced. The movie is a noisy, useless piece of junk, reverse-engineered into something resembling popular art in accordance with the reigning imperatives of marketing and brand extension.”

--A.O. Scott in his review “How the Grinch Stole the Lorax” in The New York Times

As soon as I found out the movie was being used to sell everything from Mazdas to pancakes, I knew it was going to be closer to Mike Myers' “The Cat In The Hat” disaster than either of the animated versions of “Horton Hears A Who.”
