Dr. Seuss is a staple in the world of children’s authors. Depictions of his books have been around for ages and ages. In the past, his stories were simplistically portrayed through simple cartoons. It was like a direct copy of the book transferred to the screen. Now, we see his books played by real actors out on the big screen. Seeing his stories being brought to life is interesting. In regards to Cat in the Hat, the viewer is thrown into a world of weirdness and color that just screams, DR.You can find a quick rundown here SEUSS! However, the enjoyable subtlety of Seuss’s rhymes are lost within the plot driven wackiness of the movie. It is the same with How the Grinch Stole Christmas. All of the designs and characters are identifiable but the “Seuss-ness” that should be there, has been suppressed. Granted, both movies are enjoyable for kids and adults alike. The emphasis on character creation and set is obvious. One can imagine just how difficult it is to bring these characters to life. Watching the films definitely puts you into the physical world of Dr. Seuss. Nevertheless, the essence and fun of Seuss’s words and rhymes are not accurately displayed in the films.
