The Cat in the Hat (2003) - Film Review


*originally written March 1st, 2017*


In the middle of Emmanuel Lubezki's (The Revenant, Birdman, Gravity) faux, bright, Lazy Town on crack cinematography lies a really sad and tragic story of two kids with no dad who escape to a drug-fuelled world in order to flee from real lifes troubles. Along the way they meet 'Cat' who sounds awfully similar to.... 'Ket'. They go on crazy adventures filled with completely filthy puns.

You mess with catto, you get the batto

I.. I don't know what I expected. It was just a nightmareish hell of puns for 75 minutes. Completely vapid and soulless trash, but at the same time the most harrowing anti-drugs film since Requiem for a Dream.

I miss Mike Myers. RIP, dude. GROOVY BABY.

2/10 Dans
