    The translation of the book, "The Cat In The Hat," to the big screen suffers mightily, and most of the blame has to go to an underwhelming screenplay and Mike Myers' insipid mugging for the camera in truly awful ways that must have been invented solely for this movie.

    The truly only funny bit comes at the end of the film and at Alec Baldwin's expense (think purple cupcake mix).

    I give it 1 star (for production design) or a grade of D.

    Yes - terrible. Worse than "grinch".

    Yet it will likely gross huge money, just like the "grinch" did. Dr. Seuss being such a beloved brand name...
