** "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?

** 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]].

*** 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.
