"The Cat in the Hat" is based on the 1957 children's book by Dr. Struss and sadly, the very same people responsible for "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" has turned this book into a dreadfull movie that doesn't have one moment of good-hearted cheer. The first thing they did is to take out the heart and soul of this book, and added stuff that doesn't make much sense. This film should encouraged Kids to read, instead the film encouraged kids to buy! buy! buy! Just like "Grinch" the film has once again sold it's soul to televison, just to get a lot of commerical time for the movie. At least it's working. the film had made $40 million in its first weekend. I watched television every night, and a half hour would go by without a commerical for something while plugging the film. How about promoting the book instead of promoting stuff like hamburgers, cold ceral and candy. The town that was featured in the movie, looked like another world by itself. Mike Myers plays the title role and he never got into his character. It's just like seeing Michael Myers playing Michael Myers in a cat suit. The entire movie is filled with one diminisional characters. One of them the boss, played by Sean Hayes, who only appeared in only a few scenes. The house fell apart and I wasn't amused. Children who are planning to go to this film should instead should stay home and read the book. I loved the book as a kid, but I hated the film. How about another advice, go see "Brother Bear" and "Loony Tunes:Back in Action" instead. At least you'll get something good at the theatre.

We went with another family and enjoyed this movie. The kids laughed and the adults giggled through the whole thing. As with any movie of this type, there's adult humor that will keep mom and dad entertained. The length is just about right (under 90 minutes). But catch the matinee.

Remember - this is a kids movie. It's not an epic tale even if it was based on an excellent children's book.

This movie was pretty bad. The humor was not for kids. I thought that the editing was sloppy. I'm not a fan of Cat in the Hat, though. I think it is pretty bizarre, to be honest. Almost creepy, in an Oompa Loompa kind of way.
