How The Grinch Stole Christmas is an atypical christmas movie about a citizen of whoville who is an outcast in his town leading him to despise christmas. One year the grinch had a plan to ruin Christmas for whoville by stealing all their presents and decorations. Although along the way a young Cindy Lou Who teaches the grinch the true meaning of christmas, making him change his mind. I recommend this movie to anyone of any age, it can teach children a variety of good morals as well as being a fairly entertaining movie. @GoosReviews of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
This must be my favourite Christmas movie, I loved Jim Carrey as the Grinch, I know a lot of controversy came along with him as this character, but I loved him. I thought his character and acting perfectly fit the movie and worked out amazingly. This was such a full out Christmas movie and you can tell so much work was put into it. The costume, characters and scenes were all so very well down. This movie is perfect for the whole family as it can be very entertaining for the kids with all the colours, but also the adults with the humour. 4.5/5 stars @EffyStonem of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board.
How the Grinch stole Christmas is probably everyone’s all-time favourite movie because it is just great. Jim Carrey played the character of the “Grinch” and did a wonderful job just like always. It was about how the grinch didn’t like Christmas because of a past incident and it really made him hate it but as time passes, he meets a girl who makes him realize that it is not that bad as he thought it would be and enjoys and celebrates Christmas. I would rate this movie 5 out of 5 because it is a great movie. @BirdieBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
Simply one of the all-time best Christmas films, a must for any family (of whatever age).
Chuck Jones (Bugs Bunny, Road Runner) wonderful animation, Boris Karloff (!) narrating, Dr Seuss' timeless rhymes. Forget the Jim Carrey movie or the new 3-D animated version; neither can compete with this, the definitive version of "The Grinch".
This and "A Charlie Brown Christmas" are the two specials that should part of any holiday viewing.
My favorite quote is: "Roast beast is a feast I can't stand in the least!"
(The following is my favourite quote from this holiday classic) - And what happened, then? Well, in Whoville they say - that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day. And then - the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of *ten* Grinches, plus two!
(*Favourite movie-quote*) - "Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, but the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville - did not..... The Grinch hated Christmas - The whole Christmas season. Now, please don't ask why - No one quite knows the reason..... It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. Or it could be that his head wasn't screwed on just right. But I think that the most likely reason of all... may have been that his heart was two sizes too small..... But, whatever the reason, his heart or his shoes, he stood there on Christmas Eve hating the Whos."
Yes. Meet Mr. Grinch - He's the absolute meanest (and the greenest) meanie of them all!
What would this happy "Holiday Season" be without at least one viewing of this thoroughly delightful, animated, feature film from 1966?
Based on Dr. Seuss' beloved book, and featuring the voice of Boris Karloff, this absolutely endearing picture has been bringing joy to delighted viewers for nearly fifty years now.
The fun all begins when the mean, old Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the Whos down in Whoville by stealing all of their holiday treats from them.
Without a doubt, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a true classic that can easily be appreciated by the young and old, alike.... (*Watch video-trailer*)
the movie is funny holiday movie the Grinch steals all the presents from the whole town and when the kids wake up they are sad and the parents are very confused and then the whole town gets confused as well its an outstanding movie
This is a wonderful Christmas film for the whole family to watch. The message of love and giving is still so meaningful today, and the characters are sure to delight the audience. The narrator's voice was very well picked, and the songs were also great additions to the story. No matter how many times an individual has seen "The Grinch", this is a film that never grows old.
An almost completely different story from the Seuss book. (And, of course, almost nothing to do with Christmas.) However, it does have it's own points. Carrey's antics can be both funny and annoyingly intrusive, often at the same time. Probably best aimed at primary school age.
If you can divorce your assessment from the nostalgia of having seen this every year, you come to realize that, absent "Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store/Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more" and "Christmas is within our grasp/As long as we have hands to clasp," there really isn't that much about Christmas, or even that much of a message in this movie. Charming, I grant you, and clever lines and lyrics in places. But meaning came there almost none. (I do like Horton's loyalty and persistence, but the songs make that one hard to sit through.)
I love that this movie doesn't stick to the book word for word, and it also doesn't look silly, even when it wants to be silly.
How can you not love this story?
Includes a version of Horton Hears a Who as well.
Jim Carrey fans -- line up here!
His talent is evidently plain here. The man can evoke so many different emotions at any given point.
