Format:DVD
The idea that Mike Meyers was going to play the title character in "The Cat in the Hat" certainly sounded like a good idea and the makeup job is pretty good, but as soon as he shows up in this 2003 film and starts channeling either Bert Lahr or Linda Richman (I am not sure which) for some reason you get a bad feeling. When you add an inane subplot involving Alec Baldwin as a neighbor with plans for the mom (Kelly Preston) of precocious kids Conrad (Spencer Breslin) and Sally (Dakota Fanning), that bad feeling only grows and then comes the point where you realize that this film is just not funny and that is game, set, match for one of the most disappointing children's films ever made.
There are some good points to the film. Redoing the Dreamworks bit at the start of the movie in the illustration style of Dr. Seuss was a nice touch and the production design by Alex McDowell(currently working on "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory") is in keeping with the spirit of the beloved author and his cherished book. But then people start showing up and talking, at which point your mind is consumed with visions of frantic grave spinning. Adults love the book too and our fond memories of reading it for the first gazillion couple of times is what draws us here, not the promise of adult humor directed narrowly above the heads of the small fry.
I am not really all that concerned with how much of the blame has to do with Meyers and his presence, both in terms of ad libs and writing to his peculiar style of humor, and how much is because screenwriters Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer were trying to expand the story to fill up a great big movie like this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars It aspired to be what it should never become. May 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Firstly, i am a dedicated Mike Meyer's fan. Second, i have an absolute love and affection for the Dr. Seuss books. I read one of the huge collection nearly every night to my 5 year old son. One thing i understand about the cat in the hat character is this : The children needed an 'adult-like' figure in their lives that had time to play with them. Most children crave (at a young age) that their parents could play with them ALL the time. Of course, the reality has always been different. Parents must work and deal with tons of other things. That leaves little to no time to play with their children. That's where the childrens imagination comes in. They bring to life a creature who is bigger than life. This character (in the Seuss books) is a wise, non-demanding character that makes more peace out of havoc than havoc out of peace. The kids did not know how to have fun anymore. He showed them that a small box and a little imagination were all you really needed in the first place. He taught them how to have fun with wisdom and playfulness. NOT in the way that Mike Myers did in this tragic-way off-topic flimsy film. Some have said this movie was not 'meant' to be funny. Would somebody tell the makers of this film that? They reached so hard for any kind of joke that they left me, my wife, and my 5 year old son dumbfounded as we watched everything we loved about the Cat In The Hat trampled on by this farce of a film. Mike Myers runs around, throwing his arms in the air and whooping like an idiot. Where in the Dr. Seuss book did this happen? He also spouts out somequite explicite sexual innuendo throughout the movie. Not to mention the two quite distasteful and un-funny songs that only fared worse for the movie as a whole. Within these songs,a spastic cat balances on the edge of two very raunchy curse-words. Read more ›

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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete and total waste of my time April 13 2004
Format:DVD
I liked The Grinch so I thought "how bad could it be"? Wrong thought! For those of you that have already seen it, I'm sorry. And for those of you who haven't, don't even think about it. Even though the humor suites Mike Myers style and he plays his part well, the part itself is flawed. No plot surprises, (Who hasn't read The Cat in the Hat?) bad special effects, and stupid humor. (I tried to come up with a better word than "stupid" but I couldn't) This is definitely not The Cat in the Hat that we knew as children. Since when did he start blatantly referencing the words S.H._.T, B_TCH and _SS? Or show someone get hit in the b_lls and a dog p_ss on a sandwich? Ok for some comedy movies but gave me a bad feeling in this one. I guess I should have set my expectations a little more in accordance with the PG-13 rating of the movie and not the G rating of the book.

This is not a Dr Suess cartoon. This is in the class of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory for overall fun and enjoyability. The jokes for adults are way over kids heads. Read more
