Another Dr. Seuss classic hit the big screen last weekend, as the popular book "The Lorax" debuted in theaters worldwide. It is the first Dr. Seuss book to be made into a 3-D production.

The feature has a heavy-hitting cast, including teen heartthrob Zac Efron as the main character Ted, who fights for the affection of Audrey, whose voice belongs to America's sweetheart, singer Taylor Swift.

For those who are unfamiliar with the story, the plot involves the two main characters in a love story. Ted searches far and wide for the one thing that he desires, and Audrey wants to see a real live tree. Ted doesn't hesitate to do whatever it takes to make his lady happy. And, like all Dr. Seuss epics, there is a moral to this story.

The movie attempts to appeal to both the teen generation and the younger generation with its playful humor. This movie is definitely a movie that high school students should see, especially those who are freaking out about college, work and other things. For the 90 minutes I spent watching this movie, I felt young and free from all the stresses in my life.

Universal Pictures did an outstanding job on this Dr. Seuss classic.
