** In the Japanese dub, Taylor is voiced by Creator/MamoruMiyano. So Miyano got to voice Zac Efron's role after Zac [[Film/DeathNote2017 failed to get]] [[Manga/DeathNote one of Miyano's biggest roles?]][[note]] Allegedly, though, Zac turned down the part saying something along the lines of "cast Asian actors for Asian characters," not wanting to partake in a RaceLift which ultimately happened regardless.[[/note]]

* FandomBerserkButton: For purist Seuss fans, this whole movie is one, from the above-mentioned [[AdaptationalAttractiveness "hotter" and too-sympathetic Onceler]], as well as his FreudianExcuse, to the copious amounts of padding (the actual story from the book only lasts about fifteen minutes!) and gags, especially the ones involving the [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter animals]], the kicker being the HateSink character Mr. O'Hare, which disobeys Dr. Seuss's [[HeelFaceTurn standards about comeuppance]].

** That 'Let It Grow' song...[[Disney/{{Frozen}} does it remind you of anything?]]

** The Songs "Let it Grow", in a similar vein to [[Series/LazyTown "We Are Number One"]], had become a meme on YouTube.
** To a lesser extent, "How Bad Can I Be?" and "Thneedville".

*** At the start of the song, it's phrased like a legitimate question, but by the end, it almost seems like a ''challenge''.

* WTHCastingAgency: Many find Zac Efron's role as Ted to be this, as he is an adult man voicing a teenaged boy. Taylor Swift's role also sometimes gets this, but to a lesser degree.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The Once-ler does make a valid point when he says that closing his factory will mean laying off 100,000 workers and be detrimental to the economy. Even the Lorax concedes that this would be an extreme solution.

* StrawCharacter: All versions of ''Literature/TheLorax'' have this to some extent, but the 2012 one in particular gives no explanation as to why people run corporations that could hurt the environment other than "they're greedy scumbags". The Once-Ler in the book was at least trying trying to make a fortune and do some good; in the film all he wants to do is to please his (strawman) family, and O'Hare in particular has more than once been compared to a ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanet'' villain.
