Plot Summary
In this live-action film based on the favorite children's tale, the trouble-making Cat in the Hat (Mike Myers) arrives at the home of bored young Sally Walden (Dakota Fanning) and her brother, Conrad (Spencer Breslin), while their mother (Kelly Preston) is out.

    Long on visual dazzle but short on warmth, and the humor is excessively raunchy for a family film. show more
