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
In the original adaptation of the Grinch, the Grinch's main dislike of Christmas is due to the loud noise and extreme gluttony. However, for the movie, an extensive backstory was created to explain why the Grinch dislikes Christmas. See more »

Great one but doesn't set up there with the original
I first saw this back in 2000 or 2001 i think. I gotta tell you it is funny. Jim Carreys facial expressions, attitude, voice, every thing matchs the "Grinch". The Whos are great and resemble the characters in the original story. Instead of a silent film with nothing but a narrator this one has acting and i did like the touch. It shows kind of the history of the Grinch and the other whos involved in his hate for Christmas. It does a good job at that. But is it as good as the original?? I don't think so, but what is out there today!If you want a holiday movie to get you in happiness tears and reminders of your childhood watch the original Grinch. If you want a great holiday laugh, watch Ron howards How the Grinch Stole Christmas. 6/10*
