TRS voted to axe Parvum Opus.
** In the first book, we see Mom's bed. It's a single bed. In the second book, we see Dad's bed. It's a double bed. ''Hmm''... *** A lot of that, though, would have to do with the social standards of the time. In 1958, it would have been scandalous if Seuss hinted in a children's book that a man and a woman slept in the same bed. **** Well, maybe Dad was prone to snoring...

* ParvumOpus: This film is considered to be the worst film adaptation of Dr. Seuss's works. There's a reason Audrey Geisel banned future live-action adaptations.

* AwesomeArt: The [[Creator/UniversalPictures Universal]][=/=]DreamWorks[=/=][[Creator/ImagineEntertainment Imagine]] [[VanityPlate logos]]. All three animated in the style of the original book, with some gags thrown in (Mr. Krinklebine even appears in Imagine's ripples). The movie may be reviled, but most admit the logos at least surpassed it.

* WeirdAlEffect: Did you know that both characters portrayed by the Cat in the infomercial were based on real personalities? No? Most probably, none of the kids in the audience for ''The Cat in the Hat'' were aware of it either. Mike was parodying ''Amazing Discoveries'', a series of infomercials that aired on late-night TV from 1989 to 1997, and specifically its host, Mike Levey, who always wore sweaters and most often had a British pitchman showing him some "astounding" product which had just come on the market for public consumption, and about which Mike usually asked inane questions. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxbAtjInhVU Here's one of those shows.]] (Sadly, Mike Levey passed away from cancer in August of 2003. ''The Cat in the Hat'' was released in October of that year, so Levey never got a chance to see himself being parodied on the big screen.)

* WhatAnIdiot: During the scene where the gang tries to rescue Nevins, Conrad points out that two people cannot drive the same car at the same time (after the Cat gives Sally a steering wheel). The Cat's solution? That they should ''all'' should drive.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Some opinions on this movie. As an adaptation, yeah, it's not exactly something Dr. Seuss would be proud of. (In fact, his Estate was pretty livid over it and prohibited any other live action films of his works.) On it's own however, it's not that bad of a watch and it has a few good chuckle-worthy moments.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: This film definitely qualifies: Despite it being based on a book meant for kids, the movie dealt with a lot of extremely crass humor and rather dirty things that should not be exposed to kids, to the extent that its almost as though the movie is actually missing a [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar crap detection radar]].
