The Lorax 2012 ★½

10 minutes of message shoehorned into 80 minutes of nonsensical, unfunny gags and unnecessary pop songs. It's possible to make an entertaining and appealing children's film without talking down (see: Pixar, How to Train Your Dragon), but apparently Illumination Entertainment thinks cute schtick and jokes upon jokes are the only way to keep kids' attention.
