"It's not worth your money. Not even one look. Mike Myers has butchered a great children's book." -- Ouch! Salon's Charles Taylor excoriates the new "Cat In the Hat" movie, and rightly so; the one clip I saw on TV included an erection joke with the Cat's hat and a picture of the children's mother -- no thanks, blasphemers! I will say the production design looks amazing, much nicer than that crappy Grinch. A.O. Scott of the NYTimes calls it, "A vulgar, uninspired lump of poisoned eye candy"! Over at Rotten Tomatoes, it's rating a lowly 13%, with words like "heinous," "catastrophic," and "kitty litter" appearing...oh Hollywood, when will you learn?
