Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.
Based on the book by the famous Dr. Seuss. Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville. In Whoville, live the Whos, an almost mutated sort of munchkinlike people. All the Whos love Christmas, yet just outside of their beloved Whoville lives the Grinch. The Grinch is a nasty creature that hates Christmas, and plots to steal it away from the Whos which he equally abhors. Yet a small child, Cindy Lou Who, decides to try befriend the Grinch. Written by
Martha May Whovier, the rich and beautiful Who-lady, has the last name of "Whovier", which seems to be a play on the name "Bouvier". Jacqueline Bouvier was the symbol of beautiful and rich to many people, having married a Kennedy, become First Lady of the United States, and later married again to become Jackie Onassis. See more »
When the Grinch is distributing letters to the people of Who-ville, he clearly only has two letters in his hand but he throws about 10 others into people's mail boxes. See more »

After viewing "The Grinch," there's little I can say positive about it. Personally, I've seen Ron Howard and Jim Carrey do better. This film takes away the main point of the children's classic and Chuck Jones' memorable television special. It's not the gifts. So why doesn't anyone in Whoville know that? Of course, you can't cram a half-hour animated classic or a short Dr. Suess story without using a creative license, right? And, ya see, sometimes that license should be revoked. This film focuses on the Grinch himself. What exactly makes him tick anyway? What's beyond that cheaply-woven costume and the yellow contact lenses? It's as if they turned "The Grinch" into a psychology film! It states that the Grinch was originally an orphan who grew up under two sisters (?) and decided to leave for Mt. Krumpet after being humiliated in class by the pudgy kid (the soon would-be mayor). Now, remember that cartoon they would run on NBC on Saturday Mornings once a year? The one where the Grinch meets the Cat in the Hat. Now then, the Grinch had a mother in that show didn't he? My point exactly. More faults - classic lines which made the book and the animated special classics are now gone and Cindy Lou Who who was originally two, appears to be at least eight here! This movie really was a huge disappointment.
I do not recommend it for those of you who have grown to love the traditional Grinch.
