The Cat in the Hat...

This evening I was subjected to watching one of the most truly dreadful films of recent years... it all started so well, with a very enjoyable sequence before the eponymous cat actually turns up, but almost every second after that was boring adn unfunny. There were several things that tried to make this a good film - in particular the superb set design, and great performances by Dakota Fanning and a deliciously awful Alec Baldwin, but it was just dreadful. Perhaps with Jim Carey instead of Mike Myers in the lead role and a much, MUCH better script, this could have been good... but please, unless perhaps you're under 5 years of age, AVOID!!

Lol, this one (the review I mean) made me laugh. I'll trust you and avoid this movie. And it does look like it's as bad as you say!

Weirdly, for the first five minutes, I was thinking "why was this movie panned so badly?!?". Then for just about every second thereafter, I understood only too well! You are wise to avoid the pain that watching this would cause you! :-D

I think this movie had funny parts and you're right if you're not around 5 you may not want to see it. I love Mike Myers though, gotta love em, he's Canadian like me!
