THE CAT IN THE HAT

GO!, Fri­day, 6pm, G ( 2003)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

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.
