Quotes from the movie:

Sally: Who are you?
Cat: Who? Me? Why, I'm the Cat in the Hat! There's no doubt about that! I'm a super fundiferous feline, who's here to make sure that you're...'meline'...'key lime'...'turpentine?' I got nothing. I'm not so good with the rhyming, not really, no.
The Cat introduces himself to the kids.

Cat: This is the Super Luxurious Omnidirectional Whatchamajigger or S-L-O-W for short.
Sally: S-L-O-W?
Cat: Yeah, S.L.O.W. It's better than the last name we had. Super Hydraulic Instantaneous Transporter.
Conrad: Oh, you mean-
Cat: D'oh! Quick to the S.L.O.W.!
The Cat shows his vehicle to the kids.

Chef!Cat: Delicious cupcakes are just minutes away.
Host!Cat: Did you just say "minutes away"? [he and the crowd say this together] That's impossible!
Chef!Cat: You're not just wrong, you're stupid.
Host!Cat: Now, wait just a minute.
Chef!Cat: And you're ugly just like your mom.
Host!Cat: Did you just call my mother ugly?
Chef!Cat: Shut up! I mean it! I will end you! [He lands the knife on his tail]
Sally: Um, Cat. Your tail.
Chef!Cat: What about it? [he sees it] Oh, I see. I chopped it off. Well, that's interesting because.... [he takes a closer look] SON OF A BI-(cue censor bleep).
The Chef Cat argues with the host.

Quotes about the movie:

"They turn it into a ghastly looking, shoutfest, with double entendres, potty humor, and a general mean spirited nature. Part of the problem is the film confuses chaos with fun. Characters shouting and making messes is not in and of itself pleasant to watch or entertaining."
Rachel's Reviews' review of the film

"When the set design is a film's best feature, you know you're in deep trouble."
Empire Online's review of the film

"Not only is Myers the entire show here, but he's also his own most appreciative audience. His anthropomorphic protagonist has an obnoxious habit of laughing at himself, and it's a shrill, wheezing laugh of infinite self-love that grows increasingly insufferable as the film progresses."
AV Club's review of the film

Quotes about the book:

Sheldon: Hey - whatcha readin'?
Dante: "The Cat in the Hat". It's pretty good.
Dante: And apparently... in Part Two... the Cat in the Hat comes back.
Sheldon: (dryly) Yes. So I've heard.

Arthur: It don't make no sense! The mom just up and leaves her kids at home, alone? It's just, "Sayonara, kids! Good luck! I'm off to Pizza Hut or whatever!" What mom does that? You're just ASKING for a large, be-hatted cat to walk in and start messin' up the works.
Gramp: (dryly) I think you need to get outside more.
Arthur: And what's with the SIZE of that Cat?! He's, like, 800 fet tall! That boy can eat.
