The Lorax: Who Invited the Furry Peanut?

Chillin’ with The Lorax at BlogHer ’12

By now, I’ve come to accept that my family is a little on the weird side. I consider it one of our finer points. But mine can’t be the only family that rates a movie’s worth by whether it gives us quotes that will be repeated ad infinitum, can we?  

It’s not a conscious thing. In fact, I didn’t realize it until I caught my daughter walking around asking “Who invited the furry peanut?”

It’s from The Lorax, which, by the way, comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray today. I’d gotten a copy from the studios because I’m a blogger, and she watched the movie with her babysitter last week while I got work done … and before I knew it, she had a flurry of new comments to utter at random moments before bursting into a fit of giggles.

I should have known it would start a spurt of quoting.
Thought it’s based on the Dr. Seuss classic, The Lorax was made by the same people who made Despicable Me, a family favorite that … wait for it … added the phrase “It’s so fuzzy I’m gonna die” to our family vernacular.

She’s also taken to informing me, “I’ll go right up your nose.”

Yes, I’d say it’s a hit.

How do you rate movies in your house? What’s your favorite movie quote?

  1. I think Legally Blonde gave us the most quotes such the one every time I hear people say, "Exercise gives you endorphines…" We also have several quotes from movies but add to that phrases that cause us to break out in song and you have our family 🙂
