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

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.

When the Cat and Things are walking down the street at the end of the movie, the credits scroll while the camera pans up to the evening sky, and when it turns into nighttime, the pink clouds, crescent moon, and stars are animated in the style of Seuss's artwork. Twenty seconds of the credits are like this, then the rest of the end credits scroll against a regular black background. 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.

Holds the distinct honor of being one of two movies in the theater I've ever walked out on.
Don't get me wrong, I assumed this movie would be stupid, I honestly did, I gave it an incredibly low standard to meet. The only reason I even saw it was because there were a bunch of girls going (different story for a different time). As I began watching I noticed something, this film was terrible. Now there are two types of terrible, there's Freddy vs. Jason terrible, where you and your friends sit back and laugh and joke about how terrible it is, and then there is a movie like this. The Cat in The Hat failed to create even a momentary interest in me. As I watched the first bit of it not only was I bored senseless, but I felt as though I had in some way been violated by the horrendousness of said movie. Mike Myers is usually brilliant, I love the majority of his work, but something in this movie didn't click. One of the things that the director/producers/writers/whatevers changed was that they refused to use any of the colors of the original book (red, black, white) on any character but the Cat. Coincidentally or not, they also refused to capture any of the original (and i hate to use this word, but it fits) zaniness of the original. The book was like an Ice Cream Sunday, colorful and delicious, and the movie was about as bland and hard to swallow as sawdust.
Avoid this like a leprous prostitute.
