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 books that the cat holds during his musical number are titled "Cats", "Pictorial Atlas of the World", and "Teaching Manners". See more »
When Quinn enters the house for the first time and sets his briefcase on the table, he places his glasses on top of it. In the next scene, where he tells Conrad about military school, the glasses are missing, and in the following shot they reappear on the briefcase again. 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.
