Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville, wherein live the Whos, an almost-mutated sort of Munchkin-like people who all love Christmas. Just outside of their beloved town lives the Grinch (Jim Carrey), a nasty creature that hates Christmas and plans to steal it from the Whos, which he equally abhors. Little Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen) decides to befriend the Grinch.Written by
Producer and director Ron Howard was so thankful for Jim Carrey putting up with the uncomfortable hours to apply his make-up that during filming he put on the Grinch suit with full make-up and directed one day with the suit on. He intended this to be a show of appreciation to Carrey. However, when Carrey saw Howard in full Grinch outfit, he was angered, believing it was a stunt double who "looked nothing like him."

Noticeably, during the Grinch's flashback when May-Who and the rest of the Grinch's classmates, except Martha, burst out laughing at the Grinch's predicament, even Miss Rue-Who, the teacher, is giggling along. In real life, if students are acting so mean-spirited to a certain student, the teacher would actually scold them not to do so. However, this might have been put in the script on purpose to give another very good reason why the Grinch hates the Whos so much. See more »

Included on the DVD release of the film are some deleted and extended scenes. One is an extended version of the Grinch wreaking havoc in Whoville by using a marble, which causes a domino effect. Another is a scene where Lou Lou Who is called into a parent-teacher conference because Cindy Lou Who wanted to do a report on the Grinch. A final scene reveals that the tree the Grinch cut out from the floor is the Whoville police officer. The officer comes downstairs sleepwalking and the Grinch locks him in the linen closet.

Jim Carrey, Dr. Seuss and a dog...
This movie really reveals the meaning of Christmas by revealing what It is not about, which is materialism or gifts.
By grabbing hold of and finding the strength of the very merry, holly and jolly Christmas, he saves everyone's Christmas instead of stealing or ruining it. They make his Christmas the best one so far, and he makes the Christmas their best ever. By watching this with my grandfather, it really brought out the Christmas spirit in me. It really, truly did. It made my Christmas.
The music in this movie brought it up, if just a little. It was nice, it was indeed.
I am giving it 6 or 7 stars out of a possible 10. I think I will give it 7, because it made my Christmas a bit better.
Bon soir. Goodnight. Guten nacht. God natt. Buenos Noches.
Peace & Love God Bless
