CAUTION

The Cat In The Hat starring Mike Meyers is probably the worst movie ever made. I had trouble sleeping last night, so I perused the DVD collection here at dog/house sitting headquarters. I had seen them all, except this awful and inapropriate movie version of the Suess classic. I had seen the previews, I knew deep down it sucked, but I was not prepared for exactly how unwatchable this movie is. Jeffery Lyons called it "Enormously Funny", I think Mr. Lyons is enormously wrong. Either he's a liar, or he's a very bad judge of quality filmaking, and has no concept of comedy. What makes this movie utterly unwatchable ( I turned it off about a half-hour in) is the combination of the very bad direction of Bo Welch, who has obviously never seen a funny movie, and the just plain not funny, over the top, trying way too hard, performance by the once very funny Mike Meyers. Mike, you are not Jim Carrey, stick to the fake brittish stuff, and leave the mugging to Jim.

DO NOT WATCH THIS FILM. DO NOT LET YOUR KIDS WATCH THIS FILM. GET THE BOOK.

Comments:
I caught about 25 seconds of it and Annie and I looked at each other in disbelief.

Mike Meyers did the Cat as if he were the Cowardly Lion's illegimate kitten.
 
Thta's it! I couldn't place it - the Cowardly Lion - God help him, he's lost it.
 
Dr Suess is rolling in his grave..

The graviest grave in "caddburry lave"

This movie was sticky as a big green kallar..
and we all know how stinky the green ones are.

so Make Mike Myers shiny and glowy and clean

Then take him to mr. johnson's crucifixion machine!!!

*NOTE: THAT LAST PART WAS STOLEN FROM A KIDS IN THE HALL SKIT, "THE DR. SUESS BIBLE"
 
"I think Mr. Lyons is enormously wrong."
