Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat
Source: Catholic News Service
Overwrought live-action version of Theodore Geisel's classic rhyming kid's tale about a brother (Spenser Breslin) and sister (Dakota Fanning) whose home is turned upside down by a mischievous talking cat (Mike Myers) in a red-and-white striped stovepipe hat while their mother (Kelly Preston) is at work. While true to the spirit of the book, director Bo Welch has added story lines to flesh out the story to feature length, resulting in a bloated, visually assaulting film weighed down by tedious special-effects sequences and Myers' hyper-frenetic performance. Minimal mildly crude humor and innuendo. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
