"At one point in The Cat in the Hat, the Cat, played by Mike Myers, is mistaken for a pinata by a group of children at a birthday party....the scene culminates with a husky lad swinging a baseball bat directly into the unfortunate feline's cojones. That's a remarkably precise metaphor for what this movie does to the memory of Dr. Seuss. If the producers had dug up Ted Geisel's body and hung it from a tree, they couldn't have desecrated the man more."

--Ty Burr in The Boston Globe

So it's better than "Dr. Seuss's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas," then..? What a horrific bastardization of the book. I was forced to go see it while entertaining my sister and her rugrats. And I despise Jim Carey. Mike Meyers hasn't done much better in recent years, so I'm unsurprised that the latest Seuss Frankenstein is dreck as well.
