Don't mess with the hat!

Grab a place on the couch, or go find a seat, for you're in for a wonderful Dr.Seuss treat! The Cat in the Hat who goes by that name is played by Mike Myers of comedy fame!

It starts with two kids on a cold, cold, wet day. Their mum is at work, and they've no games to play! Then in walks the fun in the form of a Cat who pulls out the laughs from the brim of his hat. Things really get wild when The Cat and his crew (who go by the names of Thing One and Thing Two), take over the house of Conrad and Sally in this fine family film that's right up your alley!

If you're expecting a movie version of the Dr Seuss books then I recommend you give this a miss, it's nothing like the books...
This movie is a great comedy though, Mike Myers plays the part brillianty and every scene is filled with funny comedy. You might think this is your average childrens family comedy movie but its certainly isn't. I think this movie will get a lot more laughs from adults than children, but still it's a movie that younger ones will enjoy.
Both Mike Myers and Alec Baldwin are great in this movie, its worth a watch....and certainly worth the price its at.

 Very very funny film

Although my daughters, who are now 6 and 4 love this film, I always recommend it to adults too as it is sooo funny in places, (you really need to listen to the adult humour). Mike Myers is fantastic, it's hard to actually imagine that it is him under all that great makeup. The fish is brilliant, (Jack from Will & Grace). This is a colourful funny film and the kids love it.

 Shocked me.

After seeing trailers etc. for this, it seemed very cheesy and dull. Fortunately, my girlfriend made me watch this, and I simply fell in love.

Mike Myers delivers once again, and makes the Cat brilliant. Very entertaining, for adults and kids!

 Silly but still entertaining!

Right three things!
One: If your expecting a Dr Seuss successful movie, then think again.
Two: It will probably entertain the adults more than the kids.
And Three: It still a good family movie!

If you take this film seriously then you aren't going to enjoy it, but if you fancy having a laugh and just want to watch the film then you'll enjoy this as i did.

The story is very cringy so obviously this will not work with Dr Seuss fans. It's Cliched indeed but it still provides. But with some funny scenes and acting you kind of forget the plot and just go along with the movie.

The acting is better than average, Mike myers I've always been a fan of and although it's not his best piece of work, adults will enjoy him more if they have seen his work in Austin Powers because he relates some scenes to his characters from those films and old acting. But he is still a very scene stealing character in this movie and thats what makes the acting much better.
The two leading kids in the film, obviously Fanning being a hollywood actress and the boy being known for Disney stuff, it doesn't create much chemistry but none the less if you don't take it seriously then you'll think nothing of it.

However kids will enjoy this no matter what because theres plenty of phyiscal comedy which relates to all children, my brothers and sisters adored the cat and continue to watch this film near enough every day.

Overall Verdict:
Not very well thought out, doesn't really connect to the franchise of which it reprises from, acting is slightly over the top in most parts however Myers is steal a scene stealer. No enough child laughs but more focuses on the adults which is rather strange for an almost child like film.

Not so serious-
Plenty of laughs to keep you entertained, story cliched but you'll forget about it, acting better than average when not thought too much about and Myers is definitely the man to play the 'Cat'. Overall family entertainment that will leave you entertained noen the less.
