Admit it, Dr. Seuss made your childhood magical. But did you know that the beloved author also had a secret tree-hugger agenda? That's right, Seuss loved the environment (that bastard!) and he proved it by writing "The Lorax" which, first adapted into a 1972 TV special, and is now a major motion picture hellbent on turning your children into conscientious people.
The movie version of Seuss' tale follows a young kid named Ted (Zac Efron) who lives in Thneed-Ville, a totally artificial city with no sign of nature in sight. To impress older girl Audrey (Taylor Swift), he sets out to find a real, genuine tree and winds up befriending the tiny orange creature the Lorax (Danny DeVito), former guardian of the land.
1. Betty White reminds us of what we already knew: Never Trust Old People.
2. That's not the only seed young Ted wants to plant ...
3. Danny DeVito's living situation in this movie is very similar to the one he has with Charlie on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."
4. Frustrated, the Lorax will later take Ted for a rowdy weekend in Seuss Vegas.
5. The Lorax administers a teddy bear defibrillator. Don't ask us about a teddy bear adrenaline shot ...
6. This is the longest and weirdest speakeasy password we've ever seen.
