Meh. I adored the cat in the hat as a child and this was okay but... It was just toooo too over the top for my tastes (yes even for Dr Seuss!) without enough of the usual endearing bits. The Cat in the Hat wasn't likeable and the kids were only suddenly likeable for the last two minutes maybe. There were also a lot of antics that were in surprisingly bad taste (inappropriate for such a young audience in my opinion). For example there were adult level inside jokes that were so cheap kids would understand. Even with the adult humour, it isn't something I think most adult minded adults would enjoy. Average at best – especially considering the amount of money thrown at it.
