Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville. In Whoville, live the Whos, an almost mutated sort of munchkin-like people. All the Whos love Christmas, yet just outside of their beloved town, lives the Grinch (Jim Carrey). 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 (Taylor Momsen), decides to try befriend the Grinch.Written by
Audrey Geisel came to the set of Man on the Moon (1999) to see if Jim Carrey was right to play the Grinch. He was so deep into the character of Andy Kaufman, however, he had to essentially do an impression of himself doing an impression of the Grinch, and that was what got him the gig. See more »

I have just read the lead comment for this film that is on the front page with the voting results and cast run down.
Why is it that some people can not take a film for what it is supposed to be.
This film is supposed to be a light hearted, tonge in cheek, family comedy, things to make the kids laugh and things for the adults, and that is exactly what this film does.
I laughed my nuts off at this film, I thought Carey put in a great performance and the whole film (if watched at Christmas) really give you a bit of festive cheer
So to all of you film reviewers stop trying to sound like film students and knock every film because it is not "Taxi Driver" or "The Godfather" and take films for what they are supposed to be, entertainment!!
