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:)

This is one of those films that divides opinions. For some it's rubbish, for others it's a masterpiece. I veer towards the latter viewpoint - but with a few reservations.
First, this is a Ron Howard film and as such, has to be accepted as a film with a great sense of identity and even better storytelling. Jim Carrey was made for this part and his performance as the gruesome Grinch is extraordinary - full of caperings, facial contortions and madcap explosions of gutteral grunts and cackles. However - even he is very nearly acted off the screen by 'Max' his dog, played by 'Kelley' who quite rightly gets third billing when the credits roll.
The story is well known and I see no sense in providing yet another precis, save to say that the only really gross part is when the Whos of Whoville virtually force-feed the Grinch with food during part of their celebration. This is just a bit too much and is way more repulsive than the pile of garbage that makes up most of the Grinch's lair. This particular scene may just make the film a bit unacceptable for very young children.
A lot of praise also has to go to Anthony Hopkins who's interspersed readings of Dr Seuss's text is so well done and so central to the storytelling.
And when it comes to defining 'cuteness', Taylor Momsett as 'Cindy Lou Who' is absolutely perfect. She not only looks the part but is also one heck of a good actress. She plays the central character of the little girl who wants to trust the Grinch with absolute conviction - and without all the overblown sweetness that so often characterises childrens' parts in so many American films. Her song is perhaps the film's one lapse into maukishness, but this can be forgiven.

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)

My mum bought this for my 3 year old sister for Christmas and as a result I was forced to watch this with the family. It had little appeal to me and, even as a Jim Carrey fan, I was not looking forward to it. But wow, was I wrong.

Never judge a book (or DVD) by its cover. The storyline was solid and will leave a smile on your face and as for the script and the acting of Jim Carrey, both are first class. I was literally in pain from laughing so much and was surprised how witty the jokes were for a children's film. I recommend this to parents as a gift for their children of all ages and anyone who is a fan of comedy. Give it a chance and you will be surprisingly amazed at how much you enjoy this film.

Jim Carrey in his element, a must buy!

We already have this on DVD but thought we'd upgrade to blu ray as well as this means we can watch it in any room in the house. We love this film and would recommend it to everyone, both young and older. This film and Elf are the ones we just have to watch every Christmas.

It was originally recorded in 2000 on DVD but has been since transferred onto Blu ray. We can see a that the Blu Ray is a slightly better quality than the original DVD, but as we have different players in different rooms, it suits us to have it in both formats.
