I have been eagerly anticipating the opening of this film for several months. Being a huge Jim Carrey fan, I easily saw how he could morph himself into Seuss' Grinch and make the character his own. I was not disappointed. This movie was pure magic. Carrey is a master at his trade and no one could have played this role to perfection as he did. There was plenty to enjoy for both adults and children alike and this movie is sure to become a timeless classic for all to enjoy in the years to come. I already have visions of my young daughter sitting down year after year to watch this remake on <more>
video, and I undoubtedly will watch with her and laugh as I did the first time I saw it.Clearly, this movie has Jim Carrey written all over it, and I do not believe that it would have come together without him. However, the supporting cast was charming and entertaining in their own right, most notably the adorable Taylor Momsen who was the perfect foil for Carrey's antics. The set design, musical score and costumes all lent their hands to a magical, fabulous finished product and I believe all involved can be proud. It is not an easy feat to turn a 22 minute cartoon classic into a full length live action film, but Howard has succeeded with flying colours. For those critics who disagree, perhaps it is your hearts that are 2 sizes too small.
creative funny laughed my *** off (by kimsgirlthing)
If you went to this movie to see some huge academy award presentation...oh well..but if you wanted to see a funny delightful adaptation of an old classic, you will love it..Jim Carey was incredible as usual. The story line was great, a few parts added like the history of the Grinch made it even better. Ron Howard never misses a beat..But although there were a few ADULT comments and cleavage added, this is supped to be a kids or family show. Try not to lose sight of that ..if you do you really wont enjoy the movie...and as for the comments about Ron Howard, try to direct a major motion picture <more>
Giggling With Jim Carrey's 'Grinch'. (by Chrysanthepop)
Howard's 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' is a delightful family flick that both adults and children can enjoy mostly with each other . It is basically an adaptation of the famous children's books and what the audience gets is a pleasant Christmas treat. Price's screenplay is brilliant as he cleverly manages to include some adult humour.The world of Whoville is beautifully constructed and created, full of colour, life, energy and spirit. The vivacious characters are full of positive energy and while it is over the top, it is all done within the context and none of it <more>
appears out of place. The CGI team and makeup crew deserve full credit for making the characters and settings so lifelike, bringing out a lot of detail and appearing authentic. The set designs are stunning and the cinematography is just as energetic as the characters.Child actress Taylor Momsen is absolutely. The cute dog also turns in a fine performance. Jeffrey Tambor, a very sexy Christine Baranski, Bill Irwin and Molly Shannon are first rate. However, what would 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' be without Jim Carrey? Carrey is simply fantastic as he immerses himself entirely into the character. It's a role that has Jim Carrey written all over it. The actor has immortalized the Grinch on screen.The movie itself is not an exact 100% adaptation of the book as there are a few changes. The romance between the Grinch and Martha May could have been better developed. Other than the actors mentioned above, the rest of the cast hardly have anything to do than make fleeting appearances. Yet, 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' is a charming little Christmas family film that is dazzling to look at and hugely enjoyable with the whole family.
A Lot Of Fun; Looks Great On DVD (by ccthemovieman-1)
I found this a very entertaining small kids movie that actually is geared more for adults with a lot of jokes and humor only they would understand. A few things are inappropriate for the kiddies, but just a few. Othewise, "The Grinch" Jim Carrey cracks so many jokes you can't keep up with them all, ranging from sexual to cultural to insider-Hollywood to racial.The film is very colorful and looks great on DVD. The little girl in here, "Cindy Lou Who" Taylor Momsen is really cute and the costumes and hairdos of the little people in here are fun to view. Anthony <more>
Hopkins' voice is pleasing, too, so having his narrate this elevates the movie further. His rhymes are fun to hear.I saw this in the theater, though it was "fair," but on DVD, it was far better. I've seen in three times and it got better each time.
This disc is a cinch you can't go wrong with the Grinch! (by max_tony)
"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" is a Christmas classic that usually receives repeated viewings in my household. The Grinch is a timeless tale of tolerance, discised as a fantasy. It's the perfect way to put your Little Cindy Lou Who to bed on Christmas Eve, or any night of the year. "Hurton Hears A Who" is another delightful story, which will be especially popular with animal lovers. The animated adaptations of these two stories are a "hateful" of fun! Here's more on each of the shorts, because a person is a person no matter how small and you deserve <more>
some good protect information. You can keep your Frosty the Snowman, Rudoplh the Red Nosed Reindeer, and all the rest. Just let me have my Grinch. Quite simply, this is the best movie that money can buy- a wonderful gift and you never can have too many Grinch movies. Any family should own this movie. After all, who can resist this tale of selfishness conquered by love? Not me, that's for sure. I'm not really into seeing the Jim Carrey version; nothing can top this Dr. Seuss masterpiece. Not even Hollywood. The Grinch is a mean one, and your kids will think YOU'RE mean if you don't stuff their stocking with this. It's collectively a perfect disc, and kids will be excited to hear that the soundtracks to both films appear unabridged on a single disc. This is a very special DVD release sure to satisfy the ones who aren't getting a lump of coal this year....
Forget The Cat In The Hat, Watch The Grinch instead and have a Green Christmas! (by au_law2001)
I've been a fan of the book and the cartoon for a long time, since I was a kid back in the States. At first I was skeptical about a movie conversion of this Dr. Seuss masterpiece, because I didn't think it would make the cut, it would be a turkey, or in this case a roast beast. But as I watched it, it turned out great! Jim Carey never stops making me laugh, and with a few emotional scenes. The man is back with green once again, but there were some scenes that didn't look like it was faithful to the book, there was more background to the Grinch's character, but I can forgive <more>
them for that, this was also touching as the cartoon was. Especially when the Grinch finally had a big heart, it made me feel all warm inside, Jim Carey was a perfect Grinch. Perfect for the holidays. I recommend this to everyone to kids from 1-92, it should be shown during Christmas, so you can all have a green Christmas. And the soundtracks were also great and wonderful. Forget the Cat In The Hat, watch this and have a Green Christmas! Thank you Dr. Seuss, this film proves that your legacy lives on!
So whatever the reason, his heart or his shoes......This movie has really grown on me. I'm a huge fan of Dr. Seuss. I saw the movies and owned the books as a kid and was given the books as a present in my 30's by my friend Amy Fidler. I loved the original movie so it made it hard at first to accept the remake but honestly, it has been well done. Jim Carrey is amazing and all of the other players rocked it. The original movie has innuendos of the character traits of the stars, however the new movie allows for much more cast/character depth and development. I have to admit, there's <more>
one scary scene here with the two main characters however I think you have to really let yourself go in order to experience the thrill. Bought it on the Playstation Network, can't wait to own it on Blu-ray. Narrater rocked it too.
How some people seem not to like this movie is amazing.This movie for me shows Jim Carrey at his best, his acting as the Grinch was flawless, I actually believed that this man hates holidays.The movie is based on Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas and to me is the best adaptation i have seen. The movie is the second highest-grossing holiday film of all time with $345,141,403 worldwide, only behind Home Alone. And it was a financial success, although critics seem not to like it.The movie is directed by Ron Howard who was responsible for Apollo 13 1995 , A Beautiful Mind 2001 and <more>
the Da Vinci Code 2006 .Jim Carrey plays the Grinch, who develops a plot to steal Christmas and ruin the whole holiday for everyone.Every other cast in this movie were a little lost to me, but i didn't seem to care, the Grinch was it for me. He just made sure i had a good time.
Jim Carrey at his best in the Grinch! (by brownah18)
Ask and Who, there's no place like Whoville around Christmas Day. Yes, every Who down in Whoville likes Christmas a lot, but the Grinch Jim Carrey , who lived just north of Whoville did not. The Grinch hated Christmas, the whole Christmas season.It could be because his head wasn't screwed on just right or it could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. But I think the most likely reason of all is that maybe have been that his heart was two sizes to small. Cindy Lou Who Taylor Momsen goes and sees who raised the Grinch who talk about the Grinch and say he wasn't a bad Who, <more>
he was just different. Cindy gets told the day at school just before the Grinch was last seen again.Jim Carrey is a hit as the Grinch and even in the serious times in this movie he is hilarious. Carrey I last saw in the movie "Yes Man" with Zooey Deschanel which was a movie about a guy who always says no and goes to a seminar about saying yes which changes his life and gives him more possibilities in life than he thought he knew. Momsen is much older now and it's fun to see where the actors or actresses end when you saw them when they were younger. She actually now is currently on the TV show "Gossip Girl" as Jennie Humphrey on Monday nights if you wanted to check her out in her role on the show or just see where she is now. This movie also stars Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, Bill Irwin, Molly Shannon, Clint Howard, Josh Ryan Evans, and Mindy Sterling. This is a good Christmas movie for the whole family to watch.
