How The Grinch Stole Christmas is based on the Dr. Seuss classic with the same name. After living atop a mountain on the outskirts of Who-Ville for many years, the Grinch grows tired of listening to the Who festivities during the holidays. So, he decides sabotage their joy by stealing all the Christmas presents and decorations in Who-Ville. He succeeds in his thievery, but the Grinch is disappointed when the Whos react unexpectedly. The town begins singing Christmas songs and maintaining the spirit of the holiday. Seeing this, the Grinch then realizes that there must be more to the holiday than material things. He then has a change of heart and returns the stolen gifts back to the Whos. The Whos embrace the Grinch when he returns their presents. They also let him carve the roast beast at their dinner celebration and enjoy the holiday season with them.
I have now seen The Grinch twice and I love this movie. It's great. It looked so cartoony. Real towns should look like that. Jim Carrey was an excellent Grinch. His blend of meaness and laziness/slobbiness was wonderful. I really enjoyed his facial expressions. His laugh was awesome. I'm going to try and perfect it for myself. Although Cindy Lou Who looks like a Beaver (I was expecting to see Wood Chips in her teeth when she smiled) she played the part just fine. Overall, it was a great movie.
