The Cat in the Hat is a 2003 American slapstick comedy film by director Bo Welch, based on Dr. Seuss's 1957 children's book of the same name. Conrad Walden (Spencer Breslin) is a twelve-year-old boy who always does the opposite of what he is supposed to do. Sally Walden (Dakota Fanning) is Conrad Walden's seven-year-old little sister, whose greatest purpose in life seems to be tattling on Conrad. When their babysitter, the elderly Mrs. Kwan (Amy Hill), falls asleep while watching them one afternoon, the children find themselves careening into a crazy adventure. The Cat in the Hat (Mike Meyers) appears, uninvited, in their home with a great deal of ideas regarding how to spend that dull, rainy day! Whatever they do, one thing is for sure'it won't be quiet and it won't be clean! The Cat in the Hat is a fun, whimsical film for Seuss fans.

    Critics are paid to suffer bad art, no matter how icky it is from the start. So all we could do was to Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! And we did not like it. Not one little bit.
