2.0 out of 5 stars not good, 8 Aug 2009
By 
This review is from: The Cat in The Hat [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
It was not what I was expecting and not too good for a 3year old too watch,a bit disturbing more like a nightmare.

I guess this movie is `PG' rated not 'U' rated to warn you of this. To quote the British Board of Film PG Classification "PG = Parental Guidance. General viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children. A `PG' film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. Unaccompanied children of any age may watch. However, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children."

Mega scary 'Jurassic park', 'Club House detectives', and 'Godzilla [1998]' are also PG rated - unfortunately I guess you have to research or watch the movie first to see how scary it really is, so your review will usefully help others decide on suitability for under fives. Being 'The Cat in the Hat' it is easy to think this must be a very young childrens film like the book - the British Board of Film Classifiers clearly thought otherwise. My kids [boy and a girl] loved this movie at around 9 years old however, as did I. Sometimes a PG rating just means more adult themes, like a love story [that many young lads would consider rather yukkie].

For a three year old I'd stick to U [unclassified] classified films unless you know the movie, particularly if they are watching it on their own - I see your three year old did enjoy U rated 'Monster's Inc'. I must admit my nephew was addicted to Star Wars movies at three and my son accidently watched most of 'Jurassic Park two' at 4, when his Tweenies VHS video stopped playing, and he really enjoyed it, happily assuming the T Rex only eats 'nasties' and that the pet dog was OK as it went back into the kennel [he found it more scary years later].
