(Icon applies to the movie critics...)  
I don't know why Prince Caspian is only getting 65% at Rotten Tomatoes, I thought it was brilliant and exciting and a great movie all the way 'round.

Spoilers may be in comments...

I liked it, although not as much as the first.

I was curious though... why did the trees fight in this battle, and not the one against the White Witch?

Also, was the moral of the story "ask and you shall receive"?

I have no idea the moral, although I should. I enjoyed the first one more, too, although it was still very close. This one was just a tad off on the pacing.

Maybe the trees weren't asked before?

Probably more that the trees were more thematically relevant in this one, heh.

I thought the movie was good, but not great... about the same as the first one. I especially thought the Susan/Caspian romance was forced.

Lucy and the mouse were awesome.

The mouse was Eddie Izzard!

I saw the 'romance' as more of a wistful admiration on his part and sort of an 'okay, he thinks he likes me and I'll never have to see him again' on hers...

Another tree thought
I'm no Lorax, but I could guess that the trees were sleeping.
In the winter, they could not do much with all the sap frozen inside them. Same for the water-folk.

Following the Tree-Ent Logic offered in the Rings Movies, the fight was over before they could contemplate if they wanted to fight or not. They are not hasty creatures like us.
