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
The Cat costume was made of Angora and human hair and was fitted with a cooling system. To keep Myers cool during the outdoor shoots, a portable air conditioner was available that connected a hose to the suit between shots. The tail and ears were battery operated. See more »

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.

All the opening logos are animated "Dr. Seuss-style". See more »
The Cat in the Hat is just a slap in the face film. Mike Myers as The
Cat in the Hat is downright not funny and Mike Myers could not have
been any worse. This is his worst film he has ever been in. The acting
and the story was just terrible. I mean how could they make the most
beloved stories by Dr. Seuss be made into film and being one of the
worst films of all-time and such a disappointment. I couldn't have seen
a more worst film than this besides, maybe Baby Geniuses. But this film
is just so bad I can't even describe how badly they made this film. Bo
Welch should be fired or the writer should.
