This film is a perfect one for family night! Not only do you have Dr. Seuss’ famous lines, but you have the wonderful book brought to life right in front of you. I think Isabella has watched this movie AT LEAST 100 times. She knows every part, every song and never tires of it. The best thing about it is I haven’t tired of it either! You know how it can get sometimes, but who doesn’t like Dr. Suess or The Lorax?! Danny Devito was spot on in his performance and I was also impressed with Taylor Swift. Zac Efron….. Well let’s just say that I could listen to him read cereal boxes, but that’s an entirely different post ;). This version is CHOCKED FULL of Special Features! Our favorites being the mini movies. Mini movies are great for just a little bit of fun. The kids also like to play Truffula Run.
