Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat is a 2003 American fantasy comedy film directed by Bo Welch based on the 1957 Dr. Seuss book The Cat in the Hat. The film stars Mike Myers in the title role of the Cat in the Hat, andDakota Fanning as Sally. Sally's brother (who is unnamed in the book), is in this version named Conrad and portrayed by Spencer Breslin. The Cat in the Hat is the second feature-length Dr. Seuss adaptation after the 2000 holiday film How the Grinch Stole Christmas.The idea was originally conceived in 2003, when Tim Allen was initially cast as the Cat, but he dropped his role due to work on The Santa Clause 2, and the role was later given to Shrek star Mike Myers. Filming took place in California for three months. While the basic plot parallels that of the book, the film filled out its 82 minutes by adding new subplots and characters quite different from those of the original story, similar to the feature film adaptation of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.The Cat in the Hat was released on November 21, 2003 in the United States and grossed over $133 million. The film received negative reviews; it was criticized for its storyline, characters and dialogue, while the costume design, production design and make up effects were generally praised. It was subsequently nominated for several Golden Raspberry Awards. Subsequently, Dr. Seuss's widow Audrey Geisel, who owns her husband's works, decided not to allow any further live-action adaptations of Seuss' work and Universal Studios and DreamWorks cancelled the unproduced The Cat in the Hat Comes Back based on the book of the same name.Sally and Conrad are two bored kids whose life is turned up-side-down when a talking cat comes to visit them.
