You may have seen this already, but the Onion A.V. Club has an interesting breakdown of the DVD commentary accompanying the garish trainwreck/nightmare that was the Cat In the Hat movie (which is nice, since no one in their right mind would by the DVD, let alone sit through the commentary).
The article highlights this revealing quote from the director Bo Welch:
"See, we addressed the book—at least the cover and the back cover. What happens in between there is not my problem."
