Movie Series - Dr. Seuss movies (live-action)

Live action movies based on the books by Dr. Seuss. The first was How the Grinch stole Christmas, directed by Ron Howard and starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch. It was released in 2000. The next was The Cat in the Hat, directed by Bo Welch and starring Mike Myers as The Cat. It was released in 2003. Due to the poor reviews of the Cat in the Hat (as well as the mature content), Audrey Geisel will no longer allow any more live-action movies based on her late husband's work. As a result, a planned sequel to the Cat in the Hat was shelved.

Dr. Seuss movies (live-action) Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 Here's the thing about Audrey Geisel. Dr. Seuss was married to Helen Marion Palmer Geisel. She encouraged him to be an artist and became his biggest supporter, editing his books and dealing with the publishers. She was the one by his side when he wrote his most famous books. Helen eventually became seriously, chronically ill. Meanwhile, Dr. Seuss began having an affair with a family friend's wife, Audrey Stone Dimond. Helen was devoted to her husband, but he refused to break off the affair. Helen, unable to live without Dr. Seuss, took her own life. Google the suicide letter, it's the most humble and sad thing ever. Dr. Seuss and Audrey spared no time moving in together. They married a year after Helen's death. So this widow that tries to pass herself of as some sort of moral guardian is nothing of the sort. She tells stories about him writing Cat and the Hat or The Grinch as if she was there, when in actuality she wasn't. She's not the real Mr. Seuss as far as I'm concerned. -- Submitted By: () on December 22, 2013, 5:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I feel your pain, Robert, regarding the Grinchmas thing.....I keep reading online off and on of Audrey Giesel [Mrs.Doctor Seuss :)] on whether or not she STILL wants to keep licensing these Dr.Suess movies, well, I guess, she must guess, if it makes money.... -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on December 21, 2013, 10:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The live-action Grinch wasn't horrible, but it certainly wasn't as good as the animated version. The live action Cat in the Hat? Let's just say that the only thing I really liked about the film was that it's the reason why there haven't been any more live action movies based on Dr. Suess' books. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on October 28, 2012, 5:41 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
4 It's a shame two classic books had to be brutally gutted and boned until Audrey came to her senses. Before these abominations were unleashed, if someone said they're going to watch the Grinch or the Cat in the Hat, you automatically knew what they meant: the cartoon masterpieces. Not anymore. Plus, it gets worse. Whenever the Grinch is promoted (like "Grinchmas" at Universal Studios), it's almost always based on the horrid movie, rather than the Chuck Jones special. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 2, 2012, 1:18 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
