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.
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.
The Cat in the Hat: 7/10
