Thanks for further confirming my suspicions. I WILL NOT see this piece of sh**.
Interesting tidbit: The Cat in the Hat was filmed here in Ventura County - specifically, Moorpark. During the filming, the "town" set featured in the film was visible off the CA-118 (Simi Valley/Ronald Reagan Freeway) and the Metrolink Ventura County Line.
At first I was planning to see the movie, since it was filmed locally and I thought it would be innocent, family-friendly fare. After all, it's based on a popular Dr. Seuss book. Now I'm appalled to hear about what they've done. As a near-lifelong Ventura County resident proud of his local heritage, I refuse to donate my $8 to the makers of this crap.
Once again, thanks for the warning.
I only paid $4. Which is actually a reason I saw it today.
It was bad.
