Every Dr Seuss adaptation faces the same question, ie, how can a book which takes nine minutes to read be expanded into a film which takes 90 minutes to watch?

This joyless, soulless cartoon answers that question by shovelling in industrial quantities of filler, and then adding a whole new plot which has nothing to do with Dr Seuss's. The film-makers couldn't have padded out the book more blatantly if they'd used foam rubber.
