Just saw "The Lorax" --very very well done (SPOILER ALERT)

A quick 90 minutes.

Dany Devito as The Lorax, Ed Helms as the Once-ler, and Betty White as grandma were great.

The bears and the fish are flat out hilarious. I have never seen my daughter laugh in the theater as much as she did at this movie. In fact I heard adults roaring laughing as several parts - no double entendres just wholesome type references to boys and girls liking each other.

There are several musical numbers to stretch it out to 90 minutes but they are good.

Any anti-capitalism (anti- destruction capitalism) is basically handle in one song just as everything ends for the Once-ler. Rob Riggle plays a new character- Mr. O'Hare- who keeps the people of Thneedville inside walls and sells them air.

It has a happy ending.

PG rated - I would have to guess because of some slapping around between the Once-ler and his REDNECK family.

Highly recommend.
