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
Cinematographer Donald Peterman's final film before his death in 2011. He was unable to shoot any more, due to the injuries he sustained in an accident on the set of Mighty Joe Young (1998). He found it difficult working on this film due to the after-effects of his injuries, and by the end of shooting much of his work had been taken over by his son, second unit cinematographer Keith Peterman.

I watched this movie on DVD at my in-laws and I am thankful that I didn't see it in the movies or spend money to rent it. It was terrible.
I was disgusted last year when it was released and all kinds of Grinch movie related items filled the stores. All of that merchandise and all of the marketing for this film contradicted the entire moral of the story! I know the late Dr. Suess would be sorely disappointed.
In the movie I felt like I was watching Jim Carrey in a green suit rather than the Grinch. His constant need to be outrageous and obnoxious was definitely out of character for the Grinch.
This movie did not need to be made. The cartoon was cheaper to produce, timeless, much more entertaining and the message was very clear and touching. The live action film was a complete waste and I found myself falling asleep repeatedly.
