Product Description

Product Description

The Grinch (Jim Carrey) is a grouchy green monster who lives high up on a mountain overlooking the town of Whoville. The Grinch hates happiness, hates merriment, and most of all, hates Christmas. So one year, as the festive season approaches, he decides that enough is enough and draws up plans to steal all the decorations and all the presents from the poor, unsuspecting citizens below. Does this mean the Whos won't be celebrating this year? Not if little Cindy Lou has anything to do with it.

From Amazon.co.uk

Under a thick carpet of green-dyed yak fur and wonderfully expressive Rick Baker makeup, Jim Carrey is up to all of his old tricks (and some nifty new ones) in this live-action movie of Dr. Seuss's holiday classic. He commands the title role with equal parts madness, mayhem, pathos, and improvisational genius, channeling Grinchness through his own screen persona so smoothly that fans of both Carrey and Dr. Seuss will be thoroughly satisfied. Adding to the fun is a perfectly pitched back-story sequence (accompanied by Anthony Hopkins's narration) that explains how the Grinch came to hate Christmas, with a heart "two sizes too small." Ron Howard proves a fine choice for the director's chair with a keen balance of comedy, sentiment, and light-hearted Seussian whimsy. Production designer Michael Corenblith gloriously realizes the wackiness of Whoville architecture, and his rendition of the Grinch's Mt. Crumpit lair is a marvel of cartoonish, subterranean grime. Then there's Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen), the thoughtful imp who rallies her village to recapture the pure spirit of Christmas and melts the gift-stealing Grinch's cold, cold heart. You've even got a dog (the Grinch's good-natured mongrel, Max) who's been perfectly cast, so what's not to like about this dazzling yuletide movie? The production gets a bit overwhelmed by its own ambition, and the citizens of Whoville (including Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, Molly Shannon, and Bill Irwin) pale in comparison to Carrey's inspired lunacy, but who cares? If a movie can unleash Jim Carrey at his finest, revamp the Grinch story, and still pay tribute to the legacy of Dr. Seuss, you can bet it qualifies as rousing entertainment. (Ages 5 and older.) --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Since purchasing this DVD my girlfriend has watched it at least once a day for the past two weeks. I am not a massive fan of Jim Carrey but this was the perfect role for him. You'll find yourself quietly chuckling to yourself throughout and more disturbingly coming out with Grinch-like expressions in real life!
When you then find that your talking in rhyme you begin to realise that you can't help but like this this film, even in spite of yourself.

The role of the grinch, a little crazy, a little creepy even a little schitzophrenic definately suits carrey. You plainly know its carrey because of the way he acts, he does a great job. The sets and the computer graphics meld together perfectly and look gorgeous, creating a sort of cartoon-esque look for the film.
So....why not five stars? It takes a lot for me to deem 5 stars really, the only thing I didn't like was that it felt a little long , even if it was entertaining to the end. Maybe I was just expecting the end to come earlier and should watch it again.
One last thing, it is funny, one scene that made me laugh quite a lot was when Jim Carrey sucked the cat up his presents vaccuum, but I wont give too much away, Jim definately is stealing the show here.

i LURVE this film!!!!! i recommend it for anyone of all ages, jim carey stars as the onion eating grinch, who resides upon mount crumpet, who's contempt for the happy-go-lucky people of who-ville has made his heart 2 sizes too small, When he decides to sabotage christmas for all the residents of whoville he comes upon little cindy-lou who, who teaches him the value of christmas and family gatherings etc.As the story unravells you find out why his heart is undersized, and why he shuts himself off from the in whoville. Anthony hopkins narrates. An all round feel good comedy, suitable for all ages:)

I bought the item based on previous reviews, and have to say thoroughly enjoyed watching the film with the colour vibrance turned up on my plasma screen. However, it is clear that this film was neither filmed in, nor enhanced appropriately for hd. In some dark shots of the film colour loss and pixelation is evident in corners of the picture, and at other times, various apsects of the screen present as grainy. All in all, a definite improvement; Im just not convinced its quite blu ray; But then it was filmed in 2000, when dvd;s were the thing of the future, we have moved on considerably since then.
Well worth a buy; And a steal at under a tenner. Christmas is coming!

I wasn't sure whether or not to upgrade my DVD copy of The Grinch and buy the Blu-ray but it is definitely a purchase worth making.

The film is very soft and cloudy anyway but the Blu-ray helps make it all sharper and clearer. The audio and soundtrack are perfectly crisp. When comparing this to the DVD, it is a vast improvement. Not one to fully show off the quality of your Blu-ray set up but if you are a lover of the film then it is great to have the film looking so good. You can really appreciated the set design and prosthetics in all their HD glory.

What can be said for The Grinch, if you have not seen it then I wholeheartedly recommend it. It is a fantastically funny film that I always go back to every christmas. Jim Carrey is just outstanding as The Grinch, he performs with such energy and confidence that it is hard not to laugh out loud when watching him in full stride.

Well worth the money.

Many kids

Enjoy Christmas

They like it a lot

And this film

Is about the Grinch

Who did not

The film gives the background, and fills in some blanks

The Grinch as a child was subjected to pranks

He fancied a Who, with the name Martha May

He tried to impress her and to his dismay

They laughed at his efforts, his gift and his face

So he destroyed the classroom and fled from that place

Then,

He moved to Mount Crumpet

And made him a home

While the green hairy creature seethed under the dome

Until one cold day at the town Christmas party

When young Cindy Lou showed him how to be hearty

Then Mayor May-Who went and spoiled all the fun

By taunting the Grinch 'til he came all undone

He went up his mountain, and he started scheming

And when he was through he was smiling and beaming

He'd ruin their Christmas; he knew what to do

Revenge is the sweetest when it's overdue

If you've read the story you know how it ends

How the Grinch stole that Christmas from his former friends

So what happened next?

I won't give it away

This Christmas this movie will show every day

So if you're a Grinch you can run, but not hide

As you try to stifle the feeling inside

Just gather the kids for a clean yuletide treat

Merry Christmas to all!

(Now this poem's complete)
