Seeking to offer his son the satisfying summer camp experience that eluded him as a child, the operator of a neighborhood daycare center opens his own camp, only to face financial hardship and stiff competition from a rival camp.
Cuba Gooding Jr.,
A 12-year-old boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.
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
The pink-housed village was built near Moorpark, California, on a hillside just south of the 118 freeway. When it was first constructed, many local residents complained to their elected officials that such an eyesore had been allowed. They were told that it was a movie set, which would be torn down when filming was complete. It was torn down in December 2002. 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 »
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.

The Universal Pictures, DreamWorks and Imagine Entertainment logos are animated in Dr. Seuss's artwork. Furthermore, the Universal world morphs into the star ball, the Cat is fishing in the moon of the DreamWorks logo, and the Fish can be seen darting into the water in the Imagine logo. 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.

The Cat in the Hat is close to the dirtiest movie ever intended for kids, and it's also why there aren't any more live-action Dr. Seuss movies. But I'm afraid to say this... I actually liked it ever since I first watched it as a child and I still like it to this day. The core reason why is the dialogue, which is at times rude and stupid but still hilarious. My favorite part was The Mother of All Messes. The kids who played Conrad and Sally were great actors; I loved when they said "That's Mom's dress!" and Mike Myers did a great job as the Cat, too. Though I don't think the movie's something Seuss would be proud of and that it should be PG-13, I thought it was really funny, so I recommend it.
