Not even worth 1 star. A piece of shit film. The only thing is good is Mike Myers and Alec Baldwin's performance.

This movie is a piece. I hated this film a few years after I liked it. Yeah, I used to like this film, and every time I did I would always read the book, and every time I read the book, I the more I realized that this film is complete garbage. The writing is horrible, the acting is emotionless, and it is a complete insult to Dr. Seuss. How can you turn an innocent children's story into a disgusting, offensive, dirty, hateful disaster? Having read the book as a child and loving it, I absolutely despise this movie. It shouldn't even have Dr. Seuss's name in the title. So many nasty and inappropriate jokes. Such underdeveloped characters. Mike Myers is a good actor, but this is his absolute worst performance. The Cat himself is
freaky-looking and annoying as crud. The Things look scary too. The moral of the source material is that it's okay to break the rules a little as long as it doesn't go too far. How many times do you see that in the media? Here they just exploited it like crazy. I know that children can act great. Look at Haley Joel Osment in the Sixth Sense. They just need proper direction, and clearly Dakota Fanning and Spencer Breslin didn't receive that. Their characters are so uninteresting and bland. The product design is nice, but it's clear that directors and writers didn't respect Seuss's work.

I'd rather be tortured than watch this movie. I'm dead serious.

The Cat In the Hat should have been called The Cat In This Bad Dr. Suess Movie, The Cat In The Hat is a bunch of fucking Godzilla Shit.
The Mark on the cover says Enormously funny, It's Not!
It's Enormously Silly! In A Bad Way!

Score: 0/10

CGI was ugly. Cat looked creepy. Kids are twats. Random Paris Hilton cameo. Myers clearly doesn't know how to do kid humor.

I know this movie got really bad reviews, but when I first saw this as a kid, I thought it was funny. I still think the movie is okay, but I didn't like how they changed Sally's brother into the Conrad character. Of course, the worst part of this movie by far is Alec Baldwin's portrayal as a broke, overweight, gold-digging slob. But Mike Myers is a funny man, and I enjoyed his hilarious performance in that movie, if no one else's.

I want to forget this movie! There is nothing to like about this one! They shouldn't have even made this in the first place! Where is your humanity, filmmakers? Why can't you just leave Dr. Seuss alone? Not only did you you ruin most of our childhoods, but you managed to make one of the worst book to movie adaptations ever! Thanks for making Dr. Seuss rollover in his grave!

Good loud? This movie. Enormously Funny? Its scary with bad acting. I like Mike Myers but in this movie no. It's a corporate movie just to sell toys and not be anything else. Sad that I went to the movie theaters to watch this sad excuse
for a Dr. Seuss Movie.

This movie prevented live-action Dr. Seuss movies being made ever again. If that doesn't earn a rotten rating, I don't know what does.

The only problem this movie had was that for a film adaptation that's supposed to be for kids, the target audience was nowhere near Ages 6+. I, for one, think this is hilarious and just can not bash this without lying.

Oh lordy, my shits can make better films than this, the fact that this film exists is fucking tragic.
I loved the Dr Seuss books when I was a kid, this film was like saying "you're an adult now, life will be as shit as this for now on".
This must be why Mike Myers is in sod all these days, he just tries too hard to be funny, playing a character that is nothing like the Cat in the books. He should stick to doing the Shrek stuff.
Only one thing worse than leaving Jimmy Saville, Rolf Harris and Gary Glitter in a room with your child, is leaving him/her with this shite playing on the tv at the same time.
This film is literally a torture device, I remember having a friend that liked this film and wanted to watch it every time he came round.

Good visuals and sense of sentiment, but the fact that it not only uses The Cat In The Hat, but leans back on potty humor to do it make this film a mess.
