WoW. They probably got ol Teddy up to 300rpm with that one.
Let's consider the simple truth. Modern film makers just do not get Dr. Seuss. They just want to borrow the sames and iconography to an extent but they have no understanding of the actual subject matter.

How the Grinch Stole Christmass is one of the better ones (hard to believe huh)
Cat in the Ha, spurred investment in the development of a real life neuralizer.
Lorax miss the the point on a scale that could only be called trans-galactic.
Horton Hears a WHo was... passable but also forgetable.

How the grinch stole christmas was technically the most on tpic and only ruined by the fact that they chose to pad out the story to a feature length run time. It got bogged down with needless backstory, exposition and sub-plots. The same with the cat in the hat, but just with worse acting, make up, effects, jokes. Lorax, suffered the same and the irony being that it dumbed down the message of the original short. Horton Hears a Who, again....passable, forgettable.

This...I don't even know what they were thinking. They probably weren't, beyond, will it sell toys?
