    Director Ron Howard casts comedian Jim Carrey in the title role in this live-action adaptation of the famous Christmas tale by Dr. Seuss, giving this rendition of HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS a delightfully manic spin. Carrey is virtually unrecognizable in his elaborate green makeup, but his anarchic comic touch is unmistakable. He manages to fully embody the grumpy title character, while still supplying his own comedic touches, and it is his performance that makes the film a treat for adults and children alike. The candy-colored set design for the town of Whoville and the jubilant score contribute to the overall feeling of innocuous fantasy that the Grinch disrupts with his dastardly deeds. The familiar story of the Grinch stealing every present in town on Christmas Eve has been expanded to incorporate flashbacks to the Grinch's childhood, which serve to explain his hostility toward the Whos. As Cindy Lou-Who, a little girl so sweet she sees goodness even in the Grinch, young Taylor Momsen strikes just the right note of adorable ingenuousness. Howard gets the performance the film needs from her, as her character makes the Grinch's eventual change of heart both believable and touching.

  • Hilarious Movie

    What a great way to take a classic by Dr. Seuss that everyone knows and make it into this real-life movie. Jim Carrey is hilarious. The sets are wonderfully done and very creative. The production crew did a great job making the animated story come to life. Costumes, sets, etc. all maintain the Dr. Seuss look. It's a little more creative as far as the storyline to make it over an hour long. But the stories tie together so nicely into the beloved Grinch story we all know. Highly recommend this for a fun family movie night.

    This is such an awesome movie. It's not the best movie for younger kids, but it is hilarious. I love it.
