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

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.

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!!
