Looks like fun : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Seuss'_The_Lorax

2 points struck me when reading this article, however :

Mazda used the likeness of The Lorax's setting and characters in an advertisement for their CX-5 SUV.[15] This was seen by some as the complete opposite of the work's original meaning.[16]
Some conservatives have criticized the film for having a strong environmentalist message. Lou Dobbs, the host of Lou Dobbs Tonight on the Fox Business Network, has criticized the film as being "insidious nonsense from Hollywood," and accused "Hollywood of trying to indoctrinate children."[23]
So, being anti-environmentalist is actually a good thing ?

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
