Conrad and Sally Walden (Spencer Breslin and Dakota Fanning) are home alone with their pet fish. It is raining outside, and there is nothing to do. Until The Cat in the Hat ('Mike Myers') walks in the front door. He introduces them to their imagination, and at first it's all fun and games, until things get out of hand, and The Cat must go, go, go, before their parents get back. Written by
When they come out of the kiosk in town the Cat says "I'm walking here", Dustin Hoffman's famously ad libbed line from Midnight Cowboy. See more »
The Cat's certificate claims he has been both neutered and spayed. This is not possible, as spaying is for female animals, and the Cat is male. See more »
I'm not going to military school.
Oh, I think you're gonna love it! It's just like summer camp, except with brutal forced marches and soul-crushing discipline.

During the animated opening logos, the Cat is fishing in the moon of the DreamWorks logo, the Universal globe morphs into the star ball, while the Fish can be seen darting into the water during the Imagine logo. See more »
For any forty-something pseudo-Boomer like myself, who grew up and learned how to read with the Seuss books, well, this film is an insult. There is NO way I'd let my kids watch this crude, stupid garbage. My jaw dropped scene, after scene, after scene. What Hollywood "suit" OK'd this thing? It is mean-spirited, raunchy and ugly. My little nephew started CRYING about thirty minutes into the film. Characters burp, curse, urinate, pick their nose, expose their posterior, etc.
I realize that young viewers don't understand the significance of Dr. Seuss, and the change his many children's books brought to the world of publishing.
This film is the antithesis of what he had in mind, and I am furious with his family for allowing this Hollywood monster to be unleashed.
PARENTS - don't let your kids think that this is what the Seuss universe is all about.....buy them the books, and skip these LAME films. Or, show them the "Horton Hears a Who" animated classic from the 70s.
Universal & Dreamworks, you have a really ANGRY viewer. Stop allowing inexperienced PRODUCTION DESIGNERS to direct your big-budget films. You could have had a classic on your hands, but instead you have the honor of having spent millions on one of IMDb's "Bottom 100 Films."
One of the worst films I have ever seen.
