I've not seen The Lorax yet, but am intending to take my grandson. I do have a couple of questions in mind, though. First, I was wondering about why a movie based on a Dr. Seuss book would garner a rating PG. I'm sure I read the book to my own children, but for the life of me, I've forgotten the story. Second, some people are upset with the producers, claiming that the movie didn't fulfill a "green" agenda, but pushed materialism with ads for IHOP, etc.
Yesterday, I was reading a bit about advertising and movies, and it seems as though the two have always been entwined. I'd like to read a bit more about the relationship before expanding my comments.
However, would anyone care to comment about the movie and also about advertising and movies?
