It's a very misleading movie. Actually, I laughed out loud at some parts (like the "Things" running amok in the whole house.) But, I am hearing impaired, so I never heard any of the "bad" words that many viewers reported hearing.
And really, there's no need at all for The Cat to turn, bend over, and moon us with fake buttocks, fondle himself as Carmen Miranda, or get hit in the privates by a boy's baseball bat. This stuff is best left to lowbrow teen movies while this movie is SUPPOSED to be based on a CHILDREN'S BOOK! So that old Mike Meyers should've been boycotted from attending an award ceremony on Nickelodeon channel (which IS a children's network after all!) for messing up a cherished childhood memory like that! Not on Dr. Seuss's 100th birthday to boot!
I loved Cat In The Hat when I was a little girl and I still do now. So it's kinda sad to see such a visually beautiful and well-designed holiday movie go to a waste like that at the grimy hands of that thoughtless clown!
