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

There are gajillions of stories of mischief and fun, but to keep things simple, let's start with just one. About a mom and two kids and a house and a hat - that, oddly enough, was worn by a cat. But soon enough we will get to all that.

When the Cat and Things are walking down the street at the end of the movie, the credits scroll while the camera pans up to the evening sky, and when it turns into nighttime, the pink clouds, crescent moon, and stars are animated in the style of Seuss's artwork. Twenty seconds of the credits are like this, then the rest of the end credits scroll against a regular black background. See more »
On some prints, the DreamWorks logo is played before the Universal logo meaning that the Universal music (which is different in this film) plays during the DreamWorks logo and vise versa. Also the opening credits are different depending on which logo is played first (meaning that if the Universal logo is played first then it will say Universal Pictures, DreamWorks Pictures and Imagine Entertainment Present) and the word Dr. Seuss' is added above the title.

"Time to Die", "Dirty Ho". These are not things you'd expect to hear from the Cat himself. Groin jokes, trying to beat a child with a bat, repeatedly insulting the kids, trying to destroy the dog. This movie is everything the book isn't, and has none of the charm of the original character. It seemed like this cat was using the kids for his own enjoyment, not trying to show them how to have fun.
The jokes are shallow and the characters uninteresting. The colors were bright, the graphics were a lot like the book, and some of the characters from the book were in the movie, but that's not enough reason to watch this movie.
