* FandomBerserkButton: For purist Seuss fans, this whole movie is one, from the [[AdaptationalAttractiveness "hotter" and too-sympathetic Onceler]] mentioned on the main page, 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: O'Hare's refusal to change his mind during "Let it Grow" brings one: don't expect a CorruptCorporateExecutive to abandon a profit-making enterprise at the drop of a hat, whether it's due to popular opinion or some form of "greater good".

** But the worst offender has to be Mayor O'Hare who ordered the Truffula Seed to be destroyed, in front of the townsfolk supporting the return of trees, which leads to him not only losing his business, but also getting impeached and being sent flying away.

* {{Anvilicious}}: Just like the book was, particularly the musical numbers. In fact, many actually consider it to be even worse because it neglects the subtlety and StrawmanHasAPoint moments from the original book and special.

By painting a clear right and wrong picture, they overlook the negative impact that ordinary people have on the environment.

** "I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees... and the trees say _______." Sometimes "Lorax" and "trees" are replaced with other nouns.

Added DiffLines:

* HeartwarmingMoments: The elderly Once-ler chopping down the boards across his windows when he hears the singing of the people of Thneedville, and softly says "Thank you, Ted" with tears in his eyes. Possibly the only dramatic moment in the movie that doesn't feel [[{{Anvilicious}} pushy]] or [[TastesLikeDiabetes sappy.]]

* TheScrappy: O'Hare to some, both for being an unnecessary addition to the story and for being such a one-dimensional villain. Also, his design falls a bit into the Uncanny Valley. If this film was going to have a villain, couldn't it be one with charisma?
