The reaction to this film is almost near universal revulsion. Me personally, I don’t think it’s anywhere near as bad as people claim it is, but that doesn’t make it a good film. The film has a great visual look, including incredible set design, and there are a few genuinely funny moments. However, most of the complaints people have aren’t unwarranted; the make-up work on the Cat and the Things doesn’t look good in live action, there’s a lot of surprisingly inappropriate jokes for young kids, there are some really awful jokes, and the CGI looks terribly fake. As a Dr. Seuss adaptation, it’s a catastrophe. As a standalone film, it’s just kind of lame and run-of-the-mill bad.
