THE CAT IN THE HAT
GO!, Friday, 6pm, G ( 2003)
One rainy, boring day, a busy mum ( Kelly Preston) leaves her kids ( Spencer Breslin and Dakota Fanning) at home with an unreliable sitter. Out of the blue, a man- size cat who speaks in rhymes shows up and proceeds to destroy the house. This take on Dr Seuss’s classic, which is not nearly as bad as you might have heard, sees Mike Myers ( pictured) channelling Austin Powers into a madcap portrayal of the feline. This might have worked better as animation, nonetheless youngsters will lap up the outlandishly bright set design and mild toilet humour.
