It's easy to see why Audrey suess forbade any more movies of her late husbands work after seeing this. The movie is the cinematic equivalent of that creepy uncle no one talks about. Meyers cat is creepy and not funny (even Freddy Krueger had more clever comebacks and less grotesque makeup), the supporting cast clearly dosen't bother (can you blame them?) (and very green and purple for some god forsaken reason) and the jokes even for a kids movie are just tasteless to the point of inappropriateness (esp the dirty hoe scene). The one positive I can say is that the sets and color motives have that suessian flare to them (although why everything is green and purple I don't know. Just watch the cartoon or read the book instead; they at least won't give you night terrors.

A very cheeky take on The Cat in the Hat. I'm sure all of Mike Myers Austin Powers characters pop up at some stage or another during the show. Lots of fun.

A few scant good moments & special effects, but on the whole the film is crass, rude, boring & badly designed--all the things Dr. Seuss's original book is not. Sean Hayes's dual performances are equally disappointing. With all that said, the film's depictions of unorthodox play and low-level humour appealed to our 3-year-old boy.

Sally: Um Cat, your tail!
Cat in the Hat: What about it? Oh, I see! I`ve chopped it off. Well that`s interesting because- SON OF A B- (BEEP)!
