lol, I dunno, I think they were as cute a villains before Oncie, but cuter maybe
actually, I thought the Onceler was more of an antihero than a villain. he started out like you knew he was going to be the bad guy, grew to understand that maybe knocking down the trees was wrong and even befriending the Lorax a little bit, but when the temptation of success and money came in he became full on bad guy... for about ten minutes of the movie, then he repented and became good at the end. nice evolution, really
oh thank you for noticing my signature by the way!
the fourth wall joke was at the beginning of the movie, when the Onceler first discovered the trees and shared some marshmallows with the forest creatures. at that point three fourth wall jokes happened at once - Ted asks along the lines of "So, it's fun to hear about your singing and dancing and sharing marshmallows with the forest creatures, but can you get to the point?" thus breaking the fourth wall that the characters know this is a musical (fourth wall joke 1) - before they cut out of the flashback, the past Onceler looks at the audience in annoyance, not only referencing that he knows he's in a movie (fourth wall joke 2) but showing the same annoyance that old present Onceler had of being interrupted (fourth wall joke 3)
Wow, I didn't notice till now but it's so funny! And also, the one I was referring to, was when the fat guy was talking to O'Hare and he was like, "Our research shows if you put something in a plastic bottle, people will buy it!" I was like, BOOM plastic bottle companies just got powned (excuse my spelling). And also, in the song "How Bad Can I Be", there were a ton of lyrics that were really making fun of companies, which, trust me, I'm not complaining about. Like how, near the end, some of the lyrics were "And the PR people are lying. And the lawyers are denying. Who cares if a few trees are dying?" Which really does describe in some way what a lot of people are doing now.
yeah.. NOOOOO! ...I'd die then! Plus all the fangirls would attack the studios...Just saying xD but I still got some on my Buying list, so I don't think I'll buy it when it comes out xD since I got 3 more DVDs I need to buy O-O
